Welcome to my blog!

Hi, this is my first time ever blogging. So welcome to my spot. I was trying to be creative with coming up with my blog name, and was getting nowhere. I was thinking Melanie M - something. So I came up with Midnight creations, because that is when most of my work happens. Maybe not midnight, but usually after the kids are in bed!

So, if you do not know me, I am a new Stampin' Up! demonstrator. I love the stamps. I had my first workshop the other day and had so much fun. I was a little nervous and there definately was room for improvement, but I think everyone had a good time. Thank you to all who attended and to Jen for hosting!

I am not new to being crafty. I love to scrapbook, although I am further behind than I would like with it! I also like to sew, although have done little lately, and have made a few quilts. People think I am very creative, but I do get lots of ideas from others and I just enjoy making things and sharing with others.

On the personal side, I am married and have 5 kids - one stepdaughter and 4 biological - 3 girls and a boy. I love to make projects for them and with them. They are all wonderful kids. I am so lucky! I work full time as a registered nurse and love my job. It gets very busy and crazy some times, but I really love the work. I just wish I could work full time and be home with my family full time. Doesn't work that way though.

Well, I hope you enjoy reading my posts and seeing any projects I post. Thanks for reading.

Thanks Mel for being the Stampin' Up! Consultant for my show. I had a great time and can't wait for the product to come in! We will have to plan a night to get together and work on cards. We should tell Kim and Chrissy too. Mom as well since she has ordered a starter kit. Sherri mentioned about having a party next month so let me know when you are free and I can help coordinate the show or I can just give you Sherri's info!
