View Full Version : Meet the Pros...

Hi I was honored to be asked to tell a little about myself.... can't wait to tell my family that I'm considered a pro ...if only for the day! lol

My name is Clarinda. I was born and raised in Michigan..but met my dh at college! Moved to AR and have been here since..I've been married 30 years this year to my best friend Tommy. We own a Auto Parts store and I work in the office. (That's why I can get on here when ever!) We have 3 children Amber- 28 married to James for 8 yrs, James III-26 married to Leslie for 5 yrs, Joy-21 married for 7 months. I have 3 fur babies that run the house (and me but not dh! lol) Pekineese Blackie, and Opie (age 6) Poochie - Maltize poodle- age 4.

Crafting...I've always done some sort. I even did a scrapbook when I was in High School... where you glue to the big beige pages... I used to sew everything, cross stitch, knit and crochet very little. I love sbing... I need to go on a diet and use only what I have! My dh has been ok with me getting what ever I wanted because he has a large shed full of woodworking tools! Some not even uses..which I point out if he makes a snide comments.(which has only begun so diet here I come! lol)

I scrap randomly... what ever floats my boat. I did do a whole year last year. Love that. I did do our first big trip (was really a business trip but we added time for ourselves!) to Bahamas. I have 4 other ones going for each child and us. I got my youngest child's mostly done for her graduation party.

Have a great day.

When Tommy and I was dating he started singing notes to me TLC so the first Christmas we were married it took so much time to sing cards and notes to Family he just signed TLC and has done it ever since...well as we add a child the number changed! lol The good thing about it on line there is no one else with a tag like it so it's never taken!

Clarinda --- it's great to hear from you and a little bit about you. Now I understand the TLC, LOL I always read it as Tender Loving Care. Thanks for sharing, SAS sista!

Clarinda, I knew you and DH owned a business, but didn't know what. I'm glad to know more about you and your moniker. This is so much fun.
