A Bold New Step

So, I've decided to do something I told myself I never would--start a blog. But, I'm not going to keep a diary. My thoughts are for me. This will, however, be a place to showcase me. At the ripe ol' age of 25 I have discovered my true gifts (took me long enough, ha ha). I am creative and have been since I was little. I can remember making things I didn't have or couldn't afford out of nothing--a house for my Barbies out of cardboard boxes, a homecoming mum (yes, I was a dork in elementary school) with a paper flower and odds and ends from my mom's sewing box.

I went to design school and got my degree in Interior Design, but that hasn't satisfied that need to create things. It is a very creative field, but its different. I guess you could say when I'm making things with my hands, that's when I know I'm happiest. And I can't have this talent and joy for no reason, I am.

I am not the best at anything, but I believe I am good. I enjoy designing notecards and invitations, love crafts, needlepoint, sewing, baking, photography, scrapbooking, painting, drafting, Photoshop, Illustrator...and probably a few more I haven't discovered yet. I like turning junk into something unique and interesting and maybe even beautiful. My Grannie gave me an old Singer sewing table that was rusty and had a warped top, trash for the curb, but it is now the focal point of my entry. And God bless my husband for letting me bring these things into our house!

So this will be my "portfolio" of sorts. And as a side note, my services are available to you, should you be interested. I suppose that's an ulterior motive. >:) Enjoy!
