About Me and Oh My Heartsie Girl

I am a country girl living in bigger cities, since I was 16. So like A Little Bit Country A little bit Diva and lots of Bling! I still enjoy all things I learned growing up with my mom, 2 aunts and a grandmother to raise me. I had a alot of influence from them both in cooking, and in fashion as they all sewed and made a lot of their clothes, and all my pretty dresses, “until I was about 15” when I wanted store bought dresses, but then a sister in law helped make things that were in my age range and for school dances and helped to accessorize them with high heels and jewelry. From being around all the sewing I learned how myself and started making my own things, then simple, like sleepwear and casual, bags and crafts. But later on after having kids I made alot of clothes for my kids over the years including coats and jeans. The teachings from my family in sewing was instilled forever. But now I love creating jewelry and is an off and on hobby along with crafts.

Since I love to cook and bake, I am always trying new recipes, many I find on other blogs and Pinterest Update

I have new hobbies that I will be sharing n Oh y Heartsie Girl and hope that you will enjoy my little crafty creations. Some are journals, some are tags, ATC’s etc. I have even joined some new communities to pursue finding challenges and swaps.

 I have been working on the internet since 1991 but did not really get into the blogging scene until 2009.  I love to share creative ideas, crafts, tutorials, suggestions, recipes and for guest bloggers to do the same. I enjoy writing about products, human interest stories, offer bloggers a platform for sharing their blogs to help them with exposure and best of all meeting new friends.  “Oh! My Heartsie Girl” is where I occasionally review company products to write reviews, share recipes, offer events, weekly memes, writing and sharing tutorials and enjoy meeting new bloggers. I also love gardening and my favorite is baking, cooking and trying new recipes to share with family and friends.  Oh My Heartsie Girl is all about being frugal, sharing ideas, recipes, gardening, product reviews that are home related, giveaways and contests. The second is becoming my favorite, it is all about fashion and that has always been one of my passions. Whether its about hair, shoes, clothes, jewelry, accessories, purses, I love them all and this is what “Live Laugh Love To Shop Blog” is all about. A way to express what I like in the way of colors and styles. I love Pinterest now and Polyvore also, as it is a way to create fun boards for me the talk about and share. On Live Laugh Love To Shop, I offer product reviews that are related to fashion, events, contests and giveaways.I have really found that blogging is such a rewarding experience and I have met so many wonderful friends while visiting other blogs. It has also given me the opportunity to create a niche for each blog, which took a while.

I am a mother of 4, have 5 grandchildren, 2 great grandchildren and 1 step grandson and after working the last 19 years with my husband, I needed to reconnect with women and found that through blogging it has given me he opportunity to meet some wonderful friends.

    So glad I found you! 🙂 I’m the opposite of you… always lived in the city and just moved to the country 6 months ago. I’m now just learning how to make my own clothes, garden, make food from scratch, etc. I’m saving your blog… looking forward to learning from you 🙂

      Hi Laura, Welcome to my little corner. What fun for you, I really sometimes wish I could live in the country again. It surely has its rewards.
      Hope to see you often, stop by again when you can!

    Hi Karren! I stumbled upon your blog through a shared tweet about you blog link up and I am so glad I did! I am a country girl and honestly just despise the city! I prefer the wide open spaces and the slower pace. I am very blessed to be able to live my dream life on a little hobby farm with plenty of pets to keep us busy!

    I look forward to getting to know you better…it’s always nice to make new friends!
