About this blog!

I’m an avid crafter, and I love cooking and baking vegetarian/vegan foods. I’m a nail technician and a sales associate at Michael’s Art’s & Crafts. When I’m not working, I’m crafting and spending time with my husband and our pupperoni, Roscoe. I made my first shirt when I was 5 years old on my little, yellow, plastic sewing machine. I have my Mom to thank for that! I always remember crafting with her since before I can remember.

After finding out that my husband and I would have a very slim chance of conceiving, we went through the *oh-so-fun* process of IVF. You can read my story HERE. After just one cycle, we got pregnant, and are expecting our first little bundle of joy December 2013! We’re ecstatic and patiently waiting the arrival of our little one!

  1. Hi there.

    I’m founder of http://www.walkedthru.com – which is actually a blog community. We’re currently recruiting bloggers, of all subjects and professions to contribute.

    I think your blog is a fantastic example of what we are looking for – it is fun, specific, informative, and has great imagery.

    So with that I would love to invite you to visit our community, and to ask you if you would like us to list your blog under WalkedThru Crafting perhaps?

    Kind Regards

  2. I just went to michales and got everything to make those little Polaroid charms and was surprised that everything I needed was there!! I am excited to start crafting!!

    • Yeah, it’s really hard for me to work there because of that reason! Lol I’d love to see it once you’re done! I think I’m going to try to set up a board on pinterest for people to post pictures of stuff they’ve made from my blog, but if you put it up on your blog let me know!

  3. just stumbled across your blog and I love it!

    I used to be very into textiles but I haven’t been crafty lately, your blog is truly an inspiration!

  5. You have such an amazing and creative blog! Very inspirational. I’ll try to do the teacup bookmark =)

    • Thank you, I do too!! πŸ™‚ He could possibly be one or both of those. We know for sure that he’s a border collie mix, and we suspect there’s some sort of terrier, I’ve thought there might be lab in him too. We adopted him from a rescue shelter, so they don’t know for sure. Thanks for commenting! πŸ™‚

    • Ooooh hmmm….well if you can’t make the jacket smaller, you can always cut it up and use the fabric for something! Like a bag, purse, wallet, or some sort of accessory! And for the skirts, if you don’t want to wear them as skirts, you could refashion them into shirts and add straps, take them in, orrrrr make them into bags?? Bags would be cute!

  6. Hi there,
    I just would like to say the i love your blog/post. The way that you write is so informal and unpretentious.
    I am passionate about creating/making all sort of things and you have been inspiring me a lot!
    All the best!

    • Oh wowwww that is so sweet! Thank you so much Paula! Comments like this is what keeps me blogging. I’m so glad I’ve been inspiring you πŸ™‚ You just made my day, thank you again, and happy crafting! πŸ™‚

  7. I have a challenge for you! Everyone has vases left over from when you receive flowers but obviously we aren’t going to buy 6 million sets of flowers to refill them (exaggerating!). What can you come up with when it comes to re-purposing vases? Please help as I have about 15 that I need to do something with. Some are straight tubes, some are hour glass shaped, etc. Any ideas?

    • I too have a lot of vases! lol I of course save all of them, but I never thought of what to to reuse them for…hmmm….here are some thoughts!
      -Fill with decorative things to display (shells, shells, marbles, little toys and nick nacks etc.)
      -Organize bathroom products (tiny bottles of shampoo/conditioner, soaps, etc)
      -Create some sand art in them (haven’t done that in a while!!)
      -Tint them with colors and stack them up together to display
      -If you’re into fake flowers, make an arrangement
      -This ones a little random and creative–fill with something, and glue a flat object to top (plate, decorative wood) to display something on top
      -Glue and wrap jute/yarn to cover them as a display or to store things that don’t need to be seen
      -If you’re super crafty, and handy, decorate, paint, or fill them up with something and turn it into a base for a lamp (this one I don’t think I could even do though!)
      -Fill it up with candy
      -Glue pictures to them as a display
      -Depending on size and shape, use them as candle holders
      -Orrrr, you can hint at everyone you know to buy you some flowers to fill them up! πŸ˜‰ lol
      That’s all I got! I hope I helped in any way! πŸ™‚

  8. Your blog and momoftwosalums inspired me to start teaching in our area privately. I have started to document some of my sessions in my blogs with their projects since two of my students had never touched a sewing machine before and after a few sessions are banging out projects. http://layedbacklife.wordpress.com/2013/02/09/new-sewing-student/ http://layedbacklife.wordpress.com/2013/02/10/new-student-part-two-baby-blanket/ are just two examples of some of the works. Thank you for the inspiration.
