It's All About Me

I wanted to start a blog for a long time and I did...a long time ago. Keeping up on it, I'm not so good at. This is my second major attempt at having a blog.

I want a place to talk about my crafting adventures (because my boyfriend sure doesn't want to hear about it as much as I want to talk about it). This will include the often bumpy road I travel between the idea and the finally finished object. I might even have some patterns to include periodically.

I guess I should tell you a little more about me (even though I know I am only talking to myself right now). I am a 20 something in Maine who works only to support her craft habit. Okay...that's not entirely true. I am a teacher and I love teaching. I sometimes wish I had a little more time to craft and could survive on my crafting alone. Anyway, I knit, I crochet, I sew, I embroider, I cross stitch, I needlepoint...I think that's it for major crafts. I make magnets, stencils (I am a t-shirt stenciling goddess after the last one I did), I make simple jewelry, I make pins, I make hair accessories...Are you starting to see the problem. If there is a craft, I want to know how to do it. That was only the tip of the iceberg so to speak.

I think that's all for now (especially since I am in a workshop right now). Hopefully, I will be adding more (and more and more) later.
