Putting it out there

Hello, my name is Katie and I am a serial crafter. I am addicted to fabric, paper, paint, bits, bobbles, paper, embellishments, ink, paper, beads etc, etc, etc. I have finally decided, one year after changing careers, that I want to share my crafting prowess with the world. *large flourish of the arms*

Career change? Yes, almost one year ago, my husband and I decided that the best thing for our family was for me to leave my job to stay home with our daughter. She had a rough start to life and we wanted to make sure that she had every advantage we could possibly provide her and, for us, that meant getting a full time Mom. It has been an extraordinary change for me and I wouldn't trade it for anything. Now, on to the crafts!

I come from a very creative and talented family. Artists abound, really. If it can be made by hand, I will guarantee you that someone in my family has done it or can do it and they do it really well. I, unfortunately, didn't get that artistic ability. Now, don't get the pity party supplies out just yet. Growing up in an environment where creativity was encouraged helped make me quite the "crafter". I don't really like that moniker, crafter. Perhaps I could be known as a snazzy modifier or creative embellisher. No? Well, crafter is ok, I guess.

So, this is me putting it out there. What will be featured here? I don't know, I am sure a little bit of everything. How often will I post? I don't know, that depends largely on a certain chatty 15 month old. I hope you enjoy my projects and maybe gather just a bit of inspiration while you are visiting.



  1. What are you going to work on first?

  2. Snazzy modifier. LOL!

    Pictures, woman, you can't have a craft blog without pictures!

  3. Well, I wanted to get my "mission statement" out there first.

    Mom, I did a little project last week that I am going to post today or tomorrow.

  4. oooh I'm excited!!! I'll add you to my list of blogs to keep up with :)
