Hi I’m Deanne, (everyone calls me Dee) and you may have seen my about on youtube, facebook or instagram as Dayleigh01. I am 52 and in a relationship with my amazing boyfriend of 3.5 years “Gary”.. you may see his name mentioned around the site.
Most importantly I am a mum to my awesome son, who has Autism and Grand Mal Seizures, he’s the best not so young kid a parent could hope for, and recently turned 21.
I’m also a Bowler, Corn-holer( I recently gave up because of back issues but may return in the future) and love to capture moments frozen in time with my Canon Camera, when time allows. I work in a Bowling Pro Shop and also the Bowling Alley, I do enjoy it, but would much rather be home these days, like a lot of us.
My boyfriend and I share our home together and are slowly turning our home into a country/ rustic theme(which is a huge step up from his very empty bachelor environment, that it was when we first moved in together!) I began my crafting journey with my Cricut Maker, Dec 2018 and I love making cards and home decor.. This blog will be all about my journey as an amateur in this world of amazing crafter”s. I’m not very good at this crafting thing, but I try, and refuse to give up, so for the most part you’ll visit my travels and laugh off the exceptionally bad choices and errors I make every day with me.
Some Of My Main Interests Are:
Photography, Bowling, Cornhole, Art, Craft, Card Making, Stamping, Reading and Anything Decor, Rustic, Shabby Chic, or Steam Punk! I also enjoy traveling and do quite a bit of it, as I bowl in tournaments across America quite often. I enjoy singing karaoke and have no hesitation in making a fool of myself doing so :))

Forest Gump, Ferris Buellers Day Off, Fried Green Tomatoes At The Whistlestop Cafe, Catch Me If You Can, The Shining, Misery, Picnic at Hanging Rock, Alien Triology, Matrix Triolgy, My Blue Heaven, The Wedding Singer, Bridesmaids, Australia, I also love comedy and anything with horror or Suspense, “Thrillers” and scary and to this day one of the scariest movies I have ever watched was the 1970’s version of “When A Stranger Calls.” I still can’t watch it without getting shivers and never can sleep afterwards lol.

Books and Authors:
I love Dean Koontz, Stephen King, Anne Rice, Michael Connelly, Christine Feehan, one of my favorite books ever written was a book called I am Rosemary by Marietta Moskin, It was a Scholastic Book I read as a young teen but I find it so very significant still and have reads it about 15 times now It is really a Historical fiction book about a sixteen year old girl who experiences the Holocaust. Throughout the book she goes to several different concentration camps and talks about her struggles in each one. it was really sad, but really opened my eyes up at a young age of just how horrific the holocaust really was.
In essence I’m pretty upfront and honest all the time, I wear my emotions on my sleeve and I tell it like it is, If I don’t like someone, or something, I just don’t and I won’t pretend to like said person or thing, just because others do and will… but I will always have good reasons for feeling that way.
I don’t believe in being fake and I don’t like to judge others without knowing “their” story first. I’m down to earth and pretty much get along with everyone, unless they hurt my family or friends and then the lioness shows up. I won’t be walked over by people, as I’ve been there done that… not anymore, I don’t like Liars or thieves and I treat everyone as I would like to be treated. I love to gift and help people when I can, especially at Christmas (it’s my favorite time of the year!).That pretty much sums me up 🙂
I know to some people this is quite the boring “about page” but hell I don’t care. I am, who I am and I’m grateful that I have the life I have.
Thanks for reading and Happy Crafting.
