I love my husband, my three kids, three-day weekends, high heels, art, gardening, reading, sushi, long walks on the beach... Wait, What?
Let me start over...
HI ya all. My name is Candace. I am born and raised in Utah but I am a beach lover at heart. I told my husband that when we retire, which is many years from now, but I told him that I want to retire to a little beach side cottage.
I do enjoy art, gardening, and reading. I have actually given up on wearing high heels but still admire them at the stores.
I would not say I am a girly girl, the only makeup that I ever wear is simple mascara. I can't stand stuff on my face. My daily attire is jeans, t-shirt, and flip flops (at least during the summer). I enjoy the outdoors, hiking, fishing, camping.
I love art! I have been intrigued since I was a little girl. I took every art class throughout my school years. As an adult, I continue to take classes.
I have been trying to focus all my efforts into my art. I have been working on an art journal. I am practicing so that I can make some larger pieces to go in my house. Maybe even start selling artworks.
I also make jewelry, recycled crafts, sewing, upcycling clothing, and various crafts with my kids.
• Brushes, sponges, pallet knives
• Washi Tape
• Vintage papers (Bingo cards, clothing patterns, playing cards, library cards, stamps etc. )
• Children's book illustrations
• Inks, dyes, paints, sprays
• Pens, markers, pencils of all kinds
• Stencils, stamps
• Book text, sheet music
• Maps, travel, items from other countries
• Ribbon, lace and fabrics
• Shrinky Dinks
• Buttons, charms, beads, trinkets, keys
• Found items and ephemera
I love most types of music. I grew up in a very musical family. My mom was in a bluegrass band, my brother was in a rock band, and my sister was the actress in many musicals. I have no musical talent. I can't play any instruments and I would get booed off the stage if I tried singing. But I love to sing at the top of my lungs in the car and in my basement when I am creating arts and crafts.
My favorite music at the moment is country and rock.
My favorite country bands are:
• Rascal Flatts
• Little Big Town
My favorite rock bands are:
• Red Jumpsuit Apparatus
• Five Finger Death Punch
The music I dislike would be rap and that mariachi Hispanic music that is cranked up on construction sites.

• Despicable Me Movies (especially the minions)
• The Princess Bride
• Pirates of the Caribbean
