For those of you that are new to this site, I will explain what I'm about. There are a few ways to describe my blog. First, let me state that I'm not a stay at home mom. I wish I was, but it hasn't worked out that way. My point is, that anyone can carve some time into their schedule to create.
I am a special education teacher by trade and I normally stress to impress, but when I'm making something, somehow I forget those worries and the stress just melts away. No need for Prozac. I win!
I'm also a thrift whore. I love a bargain! The cheaper, the better, and free is the goal. So, a lot of my projects here are either free or done for very little money. The goal is to make things useful again but in a chic way. The mantra is reduce by re-using and recycling the re-used into something functional. Huh?! Get it, good.
I consider myself a jackass of all trades in that I dabble in more than just a few types of projects, but I am by no means a master of any type of art medium. The projects I feature are do-able even if you're missing digits on your dominant hand. Yeah, I do realize that my crafts sometimes look like I made them with my feet.
Many times you will see that my projects are inspired by pioneers that came and crafted before me. These are true artists! I never try to steal someone's thunder, so I give them full credit and a link to their site so you can experience genius for yourself. I love it when I can actually recreate something from someone's tutorial and I try to spread the word.
I would love to see what you've been inspired to create. So I have decided to include a Show Me feature to my little blog where you too can show off your goodies. Great, good, or ugly, I want to check it out.
Bottom line is, some of the things I make turn out great and some turn out barftastic, but the time working on crap-fts has and continues to be time well spent. Enough about me though, I really appreciate your support of this little blog and I want to show just how much by doing this little giveaway. I am giving away a $20.00 AC Moore gift card this time.
What do you have to do to win? Well that's easy. I want you to show me something you've made and grab a button. If you're a follower, then comment that you are. If you're not, then what the heck are you waiting for? Follow me and comment that you're new. If you're a stalker, then kindly go pound sand. I will close the giveaway on Monday, January 2nd and the winner will be chosen randomly. Good luck, I hope you win a buck or 20.
