I have been surrounded by crafting all my life. Like so many, my mom & grandmother always had busy hands & loved to create. I have that same "bug" as do my kids :) I began sewing when my daughter was born, inspired to make pretty, girly things. Other than that, I am always looking for a new technique, style, or object of fancy! About Me: I am a single mom to 2 adored older kids. We love looking on the bright side of things, being creative, & learning. No reason to let challenges get you down!
