I am not dead yet!
Yup, it’s been a while since I've updated this place. I’ve been helping my friend Ashley get ready for her wedding since October 2011 by making all sorts of craftiness. Now that the big day has passed and she’s happily married, I can rededicate my free energy to my own crafty vices.
This will come in the form of yarns (knitting, crochet), clay (now that I’ve taken a few classes and have access of a studio), repurposing items, and anything else that strikes my fancy. I’ve got a lot of supplies built up from thrift store adventures, so it’s about time for me to put them to use!
I want to make note that everything I do is restricted by budget. Like many other crafty people, I often find myself wanting to emulate high-end style without the high-end price tag. I also live in a house with 2 dogs, 4 cats and a very rambunctious girl on the verge of turning 3, so I live in a constant state of “This is why we can’t have nice things!” I don’t list the husband in that scenario because he’s quite good at not drawing on the walls or puking on the floor (I’ll let you assign those behaviors to who you believe would be the appropriate guilty party).
Anyway, this is just a heads up that I am not dead (queue Monty Python skit) and I will be updating shortly with new adventures (and misadventures) in DIY. Thanks!
