I started crafting at a very young age (maybe 8 or 9) with paint by number. While at summer camp (also 8 or 9 years old), I learned to macrame. Also during that time I learned how to knit and crochet. At age 11 my mother taught me how to sew.
So, I've been a crafter all of my life. As an adult and with the purchase of my 1st home, I've dabble with basic home improvements including paint and murals putting up blinds, etc.
