With four little ones every day is a bit chaotic. And that's okay. Because somehow I'm able to craft amid the chaos.

"We Love You Framed Art" Valentines 2009
For Valentine's Day I made a "We Love You" framed art for my in-laws. First I made letters to spell out "we love you." Then I dressed up my two children and put them in different situations and took a picture with each letter so that when you put all the pictures together it spells out "WE LOVE YOU." (My parents were supposed to get a card with the pictures in them because I didn't want to have to mail something so large to them. They got it, it was just very very late.) Then I went and cut fabric into various rectangle shapes and sewed them together. After that was done I glued the pictures down to the fabric, added some ricrac for decoration, and framed it. It turned out really cute and they loved it, which is what really matters.
Their daddy got something similar, only he got a photo album and his said "We Love You Daddy."
It all started with the gift of a sewing machine. No one, least of all me, could have foreseen where that one gift would lead me. Yet here I am, crafting away in a variety of mediums and just waiting for the time and resources to try many more. This is my attempt to keep a record of my journey as I make my way through the many many projects I hope to be able to create.
