My very own crafty blog!

So I've been toying with the notion of starting my own blog for quite some time. I truely enjoy reading the crafty blogs of others, so this is my stab at it.

I love to make things! I sew, scrapbook, crochet, knit, paint, embroider, etc. However I suffer from the disease of "starting things and not finishing them." It is my hopes that by writing about my crafty adventures on a blog, that I can make myself more accountable for finishing projects.

So a little bit about me and my background. I think that I owe all my crafty potential to my mother, who likes to dabble in everything and anything. My mother taught me how to sew and encouraged me to try out other crafts. I only recently began to embrace my craftiness, and it has grown from a rainy day activity into a hobby that I truly enjoy.

The Internet has completely broadened my horizons by providing both information and inspiration. One late night in December a few years ago, I was surfing the web for a crochet scarf pattern and by sheer luck I stumbled across Craftster, and I was hooked. I found all these neat little message boards arranged by craft and I was able to see pictures and descriptions of the work of others. People posted questions about techniques that were stumping them, and others graciously pointed them in the right direction. So I was a "lurker" was quite some time, but I finally joined, so now I can share my own crafty work with the community.

Come back! There are a great my crafty projects to be shared...
