Interview with Angie of The American Homemaker

Angie is such a fun gal. Visit her blog The American Homemaker and give her a happy hello! Let's learn a little more about her first, though.

SwapDex: Tell us a little about you.

Angie: I'm 29 years old and am NOT looking forward to my birthday in April :( I live in Utah and I've lived here since I was four years old. I'm married; it's a second marriage for both of us; I have three kids (ages 7, 9 & 11) that live with me and three step-kids (ages 8, 10 & 11) that live with their mom and we don't have them very often.

I work in an arts center. I'm the assistant box office/house manager and the Kid Time coordinator where I plan and carry out weekly themed children's events. (Imagine throwing a birthday party every single week without knowing the ages of the kids or how many will show up... that's what I do for a living!) I'm also the FEC (like a PTA) vice president at my children's charter school and I direct children's plays there.

I love doing many types of crafts. I do some sewing, but I'm not that great at it :) I love paper crafts of all sorts and painting things I buy at thrift stores. (Random, I know, but there's not really another way to describe it.) I love to bake and cook and I usually make up my own recipes (that's a craft, right?). Thrift stores and yard sales are my biggest weakness... maybe even more than chocolate! I've been working on a yo-yo quilt off and on for years and I joke that it will be my life's work!

SD: How long have you been swapping?

A: I've just recently started swapping and I love it! It's so much fun to put together the package and to receive one! My daughters are also becoming addicted to swapping and they're only 9 and 11!

SD: What are your favorite types of swaps?

A: I do whatever swaps sound interesting to me, I don't really have a rhyme or reason to which ones I participate in. I'm hosting my first swap right now and it was so much fun to match people up.

SD: Exciting plans for the near future?

A: My hubby and I are in the process of getting a full blown homemaking website up and running, complete with a shop! We should be launching the first portion of it soon, so keep your eyes out!!!
