I should have failed art. Yep. Middle school, 8th grade, Mrs. Gast – she should have given me a big, huge, ugly F in her class.
But she was the type that truly believed in “A for effort”. I can't draw, I can't sketch, but I always wanted to be a maker of sorts. Is this at all like you?
I love crafting, love making something from nothing, like vinyl crafts, up-cycyling, furniture painting, papercrafting, hot glue gun projects, fabric crafts (not clothing making or anything fancy like that!)
My hubby, Matt, encourages my love of crafting and his love of woodworking comes in VERY handy – however we don't do well sharing tools, we each need our own.
My daughter, Emily, who is 12, going on 36, loves to be the on the getting end of the crafts. She sees something she wants and comes to mom first, which is just beyond awesome.
Together our small family is the perfect fit. We eat dinner at our kitchen table every night, there is no TV or electronics in site for that. We love watching movies, cooking together, playing cards (my daughter took over my old title of Skipbo Queen), and spending time together.
We recently switched away from homeschooling to a small private Christian school for Emily, which has been more than amazing.
Our home is the one that the kids to sleepovers at, there are often children we don't know out back on the trampoline, and I can't imagine anything better.
This blog is a new one for me. After having a papercrafting blog (iteachstamping.com) for over 10 years, I wanted to create a space to share and inspire others with the crafts I love, and that's more than card making.
Thank you for joining in the fun of this new site and helping me get it going!
