My love of crafts go back a long time in my life…all the way back to when I was a little girl. I was always creating things, whether they were pictures, doll clothes, blankets. You name it, I wanted to make it! I even taught myself to sew at eight years old. I made a doll blanket out of an old pair of jeans and a Buffy the Vampire Slayer T-Shirt. I get my love of creating from my dad. We would stay up late, long after everyone else went to bed and we’d create. He made model airplanes and I loved helping him with those.
One of my favorite memories of my childhood is a New Year’s Eve we spent together. My mom and brother went to bed early and as the ball dropped in New York, my dad and I were sitting at the kitchen table making a sand picture of Bugs Bunny.
My love of creating has spilled over into my adult years. My projects are a little bit more advanced (although I still sew the same way I taught myself at eight years old!) and I love to use my projects in my wardrobe, as gifts and around the house.
