Self Introduction!

As part of the new blogging challenge at, I am doing an introduction page!

Real Name - Margy Lynn
Name on - Margy - it's not very original, but it's simple and I don't have to tell everyone my real name, yes, lazy, I know!

mother, daughter, aunt, sister, friend, scrapbooker, photographer, waitress, student, smart, OCD, honest, kind, tempermental, moody, loveable, chubby, funny, wife, loyal, ethical, whiny, lazy, happy, veteran, feisty, short, nerd, creative, decisive, opinionated, liberal, outspoken, outgoing, sarcastic, obnoxious, annoying, spicy, persistent, overprotective, gracious, observant, shopaholic, sincere, brilliant, political, tree-hugger, band geek, thinker, assertive, grateful, crazy, motivated, humble, idealistic, compassionate, clingy, conceited, tired

What type of scrapbooking do you do?
I do mostly paper scrapbooking. I enjoy doing layouts about myself and my family. Of course, my son gets his fair share of scrapbook pages!

What ispires you?
There are many things: magazines, colors, nature, my surroundings, and I get a lot of inspiration from the amazing scrappers at

What are other favorite things that you like to do?
I like to take photos. We love taking Liam to the park, or on hikes although it's starting to get a bit cold. I love being in the water. I love watching tv with my family. Occasionally we'll play video games. We love going on day trips to Ashevill. And I adore shopping (too much, but that's another blog).

What do you like to do to relax?
watch TV, scrapbook, play on the computer, sit on the porch

What's your favorite kind of music?
I like everything, seriously everything. Some of my favorite artists include: Lorrie Morgan, Tool, 3 Doors Down, Black Eyed Peas, Def Leppard, Bon Jovi, Matchbox 20, the list can go on and on forever and I am sure that I am forgetting many!

What's your fave TV show?
There are so many: Desperate Housewives, TruBlood, Grey's Anatomy, House, Eureka, Sons of Anarchy, So You Think You Can Dance, American Idol, Hell's Kitchen, Top Chef, Community

Do you collect anything?
Only scrapbooking supplies. I use to collect dolphins, but I got over that a few years ago!

What make you, YOU?
There are many different things. I am hyper and really dorky funny. I love to laugh, and I enjoy life. Being a mom is a big part of me right now. I'm an ex Army soldier, and I have a lot of discipline from that. I'm a total book worm and a nerd, and I love school. I'm very shocking and inappropriate, and if I might brag just a little, I am unforgettable! No one forgets me or the crazy things that come out of my mouth!

If you were on a desert island, what 3 things would you take?
my computer (I'm assuming the desert island has electricity).
my son (I'm not taking Trey, because he would hog the computer, lol).
a kindle (totally stole this answer from someone else, it's brilliant!)
