Hello there, World! I’m new to the blog ‘verse, but I’m definitely not new to the internet. Actually it’s where I get most of my inspiration for my crafts. I have been an avid crocheter, papercrafter, and decorator for a few years now, and I’m excited to share my inspired works with Everyone who finds my blog. I’ve never had a successful blog before, or even tried to have a blog. The most I have is a Tumblr.

I have been reading a lot of crafts blogs lately. Some of my favorites will be linked at some point. I figured I’d make my own blog so that I could share with you my little corner of the crafting world. I just hope that you will see it as I do. Before we get to the real crafts, I’ll tell you a little bit about myself, and where I’m coming from in the crafting world.

I was born in Maine, but I have lived in 4 states so far. California, Virginia, and (now) Texas are the other three. I have lived in Texas for two years, and I’ll be glad to get back to sunny California in about another year. I live in a small apartment with one other person and two dogs. They are the center of my world. Most of my crafts are either made for them, or with their help (The dogs generally just sit and stare at me, wondering what the big white machine is that’s making all the noise). I have yet to go to college, but I plan on being either an interior designer, or a therapist. I haven’t really made any firm decisions on that, yet.

I am an avid reader, writer and crafter. Reading has always been my escape from the world when things didn’t look so bright. I enjoy losing myself in the pages of a book. I like Sci-fi/Fantasy as much as I like classics. The only genre I have never even really given a second thought are Romance novels. They definitely don’t appeal to me. Haha. As for writing, I mostly stick to Sci-Fi. I participated (and completed) NaNoWriMo in 2011, with a novel calledFrom Archer To Ziggurat. I plan on starting up a Skype book club to share and read new sci-fi/fantasy novels with like-minded people. Haven’t decided on a name for that one yet… It’ll come eventually. I also plan on participating in NaNoWriMo again, possibly writing the sequal to ATZ.  

As far as crafting goes, I have loved crafting since a very young age. My grandmother has a room dedicated to sewing, and a costume room. Ever since I was little, Halloween has been my favorite holiday because of her enthusiasm for it. I think that’s really where my crafty nature comes from. My grandmother inadvertently taught me to sew (I learned through watching her, but I never got to touch the sewing machine… I was too afraid of it). Then, when I was 12 I learned to knit. It frustrated me, so recently I taught myself to crochet, and then Pinterest has opened my eyes to so many more crafts.

The world of crafting appeals to me, and I think I’ll make a nice home for myself within its comfortable confines.

Hopefully, you will learn to love crafting through reading my blog, if you’re already addicted, welcome to the club. =)
