I have been crafting since birth, I think. I don't remember a time when I wasn't making things from fabric, yarn, paper, beads, natural objects or purchased craft supplies. It's so relaxing and enjoyable. I guess I'm just a big kid (at heart) because one of my favorite themes for my sewing projects are fairies!
