Freaky Friday: "Crap I’ve Made"

It’s Freaky Friday again and I couldn’t be more excited to introduce all of you to my new
friend Char from “Crap I’ve made! It was love at first sight when I first laid eyes on her dreamy blue piano! yep…fast Friends for sure!!!!

Ok Char…Take it away!

So, hey. What to say? Is it cheating if I copy my intro post from when I guest blogged at UCreate a while back? Good. Because I’m doing it.
Short version:
My name is Char and you can find me most days at Crap I’ve Made.
Longer version:
I’m a stay at home mom to 4. I have a daughter who is 9 and boys who are 6, 3, and 1. I sew and craft because it keeps me sane.
Weird version:
I only like paste toothpaste. Gel toothpaste grosses me out. Speaking of things that gross me out, I HATE pudding. Nothing makes me quite as sick as the sight of a big old bowl of pudding on a salad bar. I think prison made Martha Stewart soft. I can’t stand to watch her anymore. I hate to wear shoes. I own 14 diaper bags. When you’ve been carrying one for over 9 years straight, you need a little variety. I might also own 14 car seats (haven’t counted, don’t dare). I’m a little obsessed with them, too. I have never had Hamburger Helper. I love American Idol. I laugh ’til I cry often. I hate hugging. I cried when I got put in a sewing class in 9th grade.
Stalker version:
Becca and I have both painted our pianos: hers is red, mine is blue.
We live in the same town.
We both have gingham Ektorp Jennylund chairs from IKEA: hers is blue, mine is red.
If she drives a Honda Odyssey, we’re practically the same person….
*awkward silence*
Most of my favorite tutorials and projects are easy to find from the pictures linked on my sidebar. A few that aren’t…

(Was my use of exclamation marks sufficient?)
Stop by and see me any time. I’m having a giveaway next week!!!

Fun little lady huh! Talented, Witty, and a mini van mom! Gotta love her!Thanks for playing Char! I love all the CRAP you’ve made!!!

If you’re as cool as my new friend Char and would like to be considered for a future Freaky Friday blog swap, shoot me an email!

    I have had problems seeing your website for a few days. I dont know if anyone else has let you know. It is like all of your blog is smashed to the side of the page. I can see other blogs perfectly fine! I really want to see your blog! =(

    Monica, are you using Internet Explorer? I can't see it in IE either. If I pull up Google Chrome or use whatever browser my husband has on his laptop, it works like a dream.
