About Me

Thank you so much for stopping by my little blog! I'm so very thankful for you as a follower and a reader.

My name is Shannon Staker. I am the sole writer here at Shannon Makes Stuff. I was raised with 10 siblings and never had my own space all growing up... So now I claim stake to this blog... all by my big girl self... because my house is now over run with children of my own... and once again I have no space all to myself... Life has come full circle.

I am thirty something... but I'll feel and claim I'm twenty something for life... I married at 18 years old. No I'm not a polygamist, and no I was not pregnant. And NO none of my children will be encouraged to be married at 18. But YES it was the right choice for me, and I'm so glad that I did.

 My husband is a Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist. Yes, he's a smarty pants. And yes, he might just put you under for your surgery, or give you your epidural when you have your baby. He's cool like that. And it's fun to brag about his mad medical skills. Makes me feel like I actually did something in life because I ended up with him...even though I haven't done anything to deserve it.

I have four beautiful children. They are all boys. And they are a handful. However I love them dearly. And these pictures are extremely outdated... so my fourth boy... well... he doesn't quite exist yet in them. Nope, he's not even cooking... I plan on getting new pictures done in the next few months...

They bring a lot of energy and fun into my life and I am so thankful I get to spend every moment with them and remain a stay at home mom. I wouldn't want it any other way. I love them dearly. I absolutely adore them in their own ways. They bring me much joy. I know it's cliche... but they are such good boys. The older they get the more impressed with them I am.

We are members of The Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter-day Saints. We live our lives in unison with it's teachings and with our Savior. We know he lives, we know he loves us, and we know he wants the best for us. He definitely leads and guides us, we are very blessed.

As for me personally. I LOVE to create. It's my escape from life. It's my only draw to being a girl in my home. Surrounded by boy things from the moment I wake up I crave to pull out a little craft or two. I try so hard to only craft while my boys are asleep or are at school. I have been extremely blessed to be born with such a great talent as my art skills. I am thankful for my grandmother who was also equally as talented. I LOVE to sew, to paint with any medium, to draw with any medium, and to create. I just LOVE it.

Thank you so much for stopping by and learning a little bit more about me. I would LOVE for you to stay awhile and become a follower of my blog!
