It has been a dream of mine to create a blog for many years. I tried my hand at home craft businesses, websites and bazaars over the years but one thing always stood out. I wasn’t able to include my family as much as I would like. My projects would consume me and I would find myself mourning the times we could just be ourselves.
This blog is my need to create combined with my craving to spend as much time with my kids as I can before they grow up and fly out of this nest of mine. The ideas they come up with, the experiments we have learning new crafts, and the time spent scrubbing up our messes will be memories I hold in my heart forever.
Some of my favorite crafts include crochet, quilting and writing. My skills have always kept me firmly planted in this world with a clear path to follow. My projects leave me feeling accomplished and productive. I think those are really important for me during a craft project. My attention span wouldn’t last if they didn’t.
My children are more like my husband in so many ways. They have his creative flair for paint, drawing and imagination. They can manipulate the arts and create whole new worlds right before my eyes. They can spend days, even weeks, planning out the settings of their pretend games. Seeing them with paintbrush in hand or comic book in development fills me with pride and awe.
This blog will be a compendium of our projects. All of our favorite arts and crafts right here for you to browse. Our blunders and our successes. We want to share what we do for fun and hope that you enjoy what you find here.
Thank you for stopping by to see what we have created. I really can’t wait to share this journey with you.
