Crafts have always been in my life. 

I sew, crochet, draw, make jewelry, do paper crafts (cards, ATCs, bookmarks, etc.) and I do all kinds of crafts/decor for around the house, and I even garden (I grow some damn good veggies!).  I also like tatts, breaking a few of the rules, creating my own agenda, and being a kick ass individual.


When I first learned to sew- I taught myself to sew by hand. I would sew santa hats, little purses and bags, and even skirts, sewn all by hand! I just figured it out as I went. Then I learned the machine through school. I still don’t use patterns and just make things up as I go along, learning in the process what works and what doesn’t. I am a total trial and error crafter. I draw it on paper and measure and then go for it. Measure, Measure, Measure! Don’t get lazy with the project, do it right, measure and mark, and you’ll be pleased with the results.


I worked at a photo studio for a few years and LOVED it. I have photos all over my walls and shelves. I usually have my camera on me and try to take photos. But I really need a new camera!!


I taught myself. Which was hard at first. But then I got some help from my cousin and also I got a few books as a gift from my bf 🙂

Now I really love to crochet.


I was never that kid in school who ate glue. Never. haha. Just wanted to throw that out there. I do love my glue and always seem to have plenty around. I bet I have wood glue, fabric glue, flip flop glue, super glue, and elmers white glue right now. Never know when you might need to glue some sequins on!

and this is me:


I love being crafty and have a great sense of humor. I dont always follow fashion “rules”. Sometimes you have to put being shy behind you and just go for it! We’ve only got this one life. Today is never here again. I think fashion should be fun and flirty bold and beautiful 🙂


one thing I don’t like…. tags that read: Hand Wash Only…..
