You are a witness to this – my first blog! So, how did I get here? I’m pretty sure I got my craftiness from my mom. She was always making something. She used to make wedding bouquets and flower arrangements, flower dough jewelry, quilts, ribbon butterflies with magnets for the refrigerator (sure wish I had a set of those to hold on to), chenille graduation owls, clothes, cake decorating and so on. She was an amazing woman who was taken from us at the young age of 62. I’m not saying I couldn’t learn to do some of these things but I try not to take on too many projects at once. I used to do tole painting (decorative painting) and I loved that. Painting takes time and it just seemed after my son was born 15 years ago the less time I had. I will dabble in it from time to time but not like I used to. I’ll share pictures of some of my projects sometime in the near future. My current crafty past times are digital scrapbooking and card making. I refuse to buy store bought cards. I have in a pinch but it is rare. At Christmas I send out about 90 cards so I definitely am busy in the weeks leading up to the Holidays getting my cards made. Last year, I turned my attention to something I love to wear – JEWELRY. I am having a blast creating lots of different jewelry pieces. So, we’ll see where the good Lord takes me on this journey. I like to gab so stay tuned to this blogging adventure I have started on.
