Hello! My name is Amanda. It's nice to meet you all. I started this blog just on a whim a couple of years ago, mainly for my crafting. I recently started posting product reviews and giveaways. The product reviews have taken over most of the blog, but I love them and want to keep doing them for a you all.
I have also started a book review blog. You can find it here: My Tangled Skeins Book Reviews. I love to read. I read all the time! So it made sense to start blogging about books and anything book related.
Here are some ways to reach/follow me.

OK! So now something about me.
I am a mom to two wonderful children, Serenity and Joey. I am a wife to a perfect (usually) husband, Bobby. I will talk about them occasionally and maybe post pictures of them.You will find most post containing any pics of them or updates about my family under the Family Pics and Updates tab. Most of these will also be under other tabs as well since I rarely just post about me and my family.
I will be sharing awesome sweepstakes and giveaways with you all. I will be doing reviews on products and telling you my honest, and sometimes blunt, opinion of them. Hopefully there will be many products for me to share with you all. I am still learning as I go, so bear with me as I learn how to promote sweepstakes and giveaways. If you have any feedback and/or suggestions for me on how I am doing or what I should be doing, feel free to contact me and let me know. You will find these posts under the Giveaways and Sweepstakes tab and also the Reviews tab. Some things will overlap of course and be under several tabs.
Also I am a crafter. I love to knit, cross stitch, take photos, and to learn new things all the time.I am trying to learn to crochet and to spin also. I will be sharing my progress with you in all my crafty endeavors. I will have some wins and some fails, as does everyone, and want you all to be by my side on my journeys. Most of these posts will be under the tab labeled Crafty Bits. I am in the affiliate program with My Memories Suite, so I will offer freebie links to their scrapbooking and printable stuff. These, and any other freebies I can offer, will be under the table labeled Free Bits.
I like to garden and am slowly learning how to grow things now that I live in Texas. It is very different conditions here than it was in Indiana. I will keep posting on my progress in the garden and what I make with what I actually can get to grow. These will be found under the tab Garden, Kitchen. As with the other categories, there will often be overlap in the tabs, especially in my earlier posts.
Which brings me to cooking. I love to cook. I am always looking to make new dishes or to improve upon old ones. I will be sharing some of the things I have tried with you all. There might be pictures in some posts, and recipes in others. If I ever post a pic of something without giving a recipe and you want to know how to make it, then either contact me or leave a comment asking about it. I will either email you personally with the recipe or post it on here. Of course sometimes the recipe won't be easily remembered. I tend to throw in a little of this and a bit of that. But for the most part the things I make are pretty easy and very filling. I feed a family of four on a Very tight budget and our meals need to be cheap, but tasty and satisfying. These will be found under the Garden, Kitchen tab. Again, there will be overlap, especially in the older posts.
I am an avid reader. I like to write. I love music and always have a soundtrack running through my head. It's an eclectic mix, I can tell you that. I listen to almost everything! Some of this might come through in posts, some of it won't. You can never tell what I might go off on a tangent about. That is just how I am. I hope you all enjoy my blog.
Thank you all for reading my blog. I welcome you all with a big smile on my face.
And to all of my faithful tanglers out there.....
