I had to start's to Kathryn

Dear readers (actually, I think Kathryn, you are the first),
This post is to celebrate that MY own SISTER has beat me to the blogging world (not that I'm competitive or anything!)...but I do credit her for inspiring me to start my own crafts blog. She has a wonderful one of her own as I'm sure you will be able to see as soon as I figure out how to add that to my page.

I absolutely LOVE everything about crafts. I have been doing them for as long as I can remember - probably even as a toddler. I love the feel of fabrics, paper, string, yarn, beads, GLUE, and tiny things that can get lost under beds, tables, chairs, and make messes! I crochet, knit, cross-stitch, sew, make beaded jewelry, paintings - acryllic and watercolor, glass painting, paper crafts, cards, scrapbook (well, I wish I did), anything glue and scissors can do, make hats, costumes, party favors, hair accessories, gifts for much I have done, and love to do.

Why start a blog? Because I rarely look back at things I have done, and plenty of people ask to see things I have made, or am working on (which usually a LOT of unfinished things or --"works-in-progress" as I call them) I am really good about researching new projects or ideas for new treasures, but not really documenting the ones I DO. Here's a go at it anyway. Thanks for reading. Please share what you think and where you get YOUR ideas from too. I'd love to know.

Happy crafting...


  1. Sooo, I don't see anywhere to post in your jewelry pictures- but I really like the 43rd picture item- it's got a silver sanddollar charm in the middle... so should I come right out and ask if you will make me one? :)

  2. Oh, and I love the picture of you for your profile picture :) Does is sound like I'm brown-nosing now, buttering you up? I'm honestly not... really... honest... but did it help at all? (Tee hee, just kidding :) )
