Feature Friday - Jewelry by Momma J

Q: Tell us a little about yourself; what makes you so special…
My name is Marianne Jackson. I have been married for 15 years to a wonderful husband who has recently re-enlisted in the Army. We have 3 beautiful daughters - Lauren 14, Cassidy 7, and Abigail 4. I currently work outside of the home, but as of the 1st of June, I will be a full-time stay at home mom - FINALLY!! What makes me special? Wow that's a tough question to answer! I guess what makes me special is that I have overcome A LOT of struggles in my life and have come through with a smile on my face.

Q: What do you make/create?
I crochet and make jewelry. I have been crocheting for about 8 or 9 years now. I make all sorts of times from afghans to baby booties to scarves and much more. I began making jewelry recently and have fallen in love with it. I have done mostly beaded work, but am currently working on wire items - my current project is a copper necklace that I'm really excited about.

Now onto the really important questions…

Q: If you were an appliance, what kind of appliance would you be? Why?
A coffee maker - because I've always said I need a coffee IV hooked up to me to get me through the day!

Q: Who was the last person you talked to on the phone?
My oldest daughter. She is currently spending spring break in Washington D.C. with friends.

Q: What’s your most embarrassing moment?
My kids have been kind enough to cause me many embarrassing moments. Just this past weekend while at the grocery store, my youngest was in the cart at the check-out stand and in a very loud voice said "I don't like that boy." She was referring to the man bagging the groceries. I knew I shouldn't have asked, but I did. I asked her why she didn't like him. And in a loud voice she responded: "Because he's too ugly!" I could not get out of there fast enough!

Q: Movie star crush?
Matthew McConaughey!

Q: Black and white or a hazy grey?
Black and white.

Q: Who’s on your iPod?
I don't have an iPod!

Q: If Luke Skywalker and Harry Potter dueled, who would win? Why?
Duh - Luke. He's a Jedi Knight!

Q: Best advice you ever received?
A: My father taught me my favorite phrase: "Let it go."
