I started crafting when I was a little girl, watching my grandmother paint, sew, and draw. I am self-taught; if I want to learn something, I check out Google or magazines for the directions and give it a shot. If there aren't any directions, I just stumble through it, doing what I think is right, and see what happens. One thing is for certain, though... you can't pigeon-hole my work! I'm all over the place, which keeps life exciting.
