Back on Track

So maybe starting a craft blog in the midst of trying to find a job wasn't my smartest idea. Months with no blog posts doesn't showcase my dedication to crafting, does it?

Since deciding to be my own boss got me off of job hunting mode, the crafting muse has been bugging me to get started with this craft blog again. So, I'm back!

The cards for my mother-in-law were a hit! I didn't realize how thrilled she would be to get them! I ended up making 24 cards for her, all created from a card kit I bought years ago at a book fair.

Birthdays, anniversaries and Halloween loom on the card sending horizon, so I need to get my crafty self in design mode and get to work!

For the next set of cards, I'm going to skip the card making kit and use my scrapbooking and graphics tools to create them. I'll share some completed designs and a Halloween card making digital mini-kit with you.

I am a crafter. I have a lifelong love of crafting, from making jewelry to quilting to tatting to knitting to scrapbooking to making my own cards. My wonderful Mother taught me the love of crafting at an early age. We made ornaments, cards, paper chains, flower bouquets, and jewelry. She taught us to crochet, knit, sew, tat, embroider and many other crafts. She showed us how to look at an item and see the construction and design skills that went into making that item.

As an event and wedding planner, I know I can save my clients money by showing them how to make some of the things they will use at their event or wedding, or by making the items myself. And I'm going to share my crafts with you.

I'm working on my first craft blog: cards for my mother-in-law to send to friends. So bookmark my blog and come back next week to see the cards and get the instructions to make your own cards!

Until then, I hope you craft a little each day!
