Can you believe it's 2011 and I am JUST jumping into the blogosphere. Well, I guess that's not totally true. I did create a blog of a family vacation once a LONG time ago, but that blog ended with the one trip. This time, I thought I'd blog about something I love- crafting. I've dabbled in many a craft. My first, as a little girl was the potholder loom! I got it as a Christmas gift and LOVED that thing. I made a TON of potholders and wished I could do more! At another point as a girl, my mother gave me some of her scrap fabric from sewing projects, that with needle and thread, I made Barbie some really snazzy clothes!
In Junior High, I did real well in home economics class and liked using the sewing machine.
Fast forward into my "working" teen years and I got my first job at SOFRO- our local fabric store and my first sewing machine! Ok, my only sewing machine- I still have and use the same one! What ever the latest craft was that sold at the store, I tried it- why not right? I got a REALLY good employee discount. I made a few log cabin quilts even.
In college, I started in scrapbooking-- When I look back, I know how pathetic they were- pictures cut up with different quotes and things cut out of magazines, crayola markers, all on those magnetic photo sleeves-ack!
Now I am passionate about scrapbooking and crafty sewing (DO NOT ask me to ever make clothes! They end up pretty pathetic!). That's me in a crafty little nutshell!
