Hi Everyone! I’m Hope from Sparkle. I’m a SAHM of 3 beautiful and bubbly little girls (ages 5, 4, & 2). I’ve been married to my husband, my best friend Josh, for almost 8 years. I started blogging so I would have a place to showcase the wedding jewelry that I make. My daughter wanted me to name the jewelry Sparkle, and it was so simple I liked it right away. Well…one thing led to another and before I new it, I was blogging about my crafts and family life too. Since I only started blogging in Dec. 2010 I guess you can call me a newbie. When I began my blog I didn’t realize at the time how addictive it would be. I have so much fun sharing my projects, making friends, and hopefully inspiring at least a couple people along the way. I’m still in shock to be a participant in American Crafter and know that this is going to be a fun experience.
