Welcome to day 2 of rediscovering. I like to make things. All kinds of sweet things. I get a little stir crazy if I go for more than 2 days without doing something crafty. But I wasn't always this way....
As a freshman in college, I was on the path to be an English teacher. It was a demanding program & I always felt lost. It never clicked with me. Shortly after my 2nd year in school, I married the most wonderful man in the world (for me, anyway) & got pregnant 5 months later. Not willing to tackle a less than pleasant pregnancy AND school, I decided to become a stay at home mom.
My first birth was not easy. 15 hours of labor & an emergency c-section wiped me out. Not to mention all the weight I had gained that year (100 lbs.! - 50 of it was a medical issue & the other 50 was pregnancy weight). I was a wreck. But that's another story. When I got home, I had a lot of recovery time on my hands & a sweet little girl that loved to scream all through the night. I was bored. So with a camera in one hand & construction paper in the other (I had no idea what acid free meant back then), I started to scrapbook. That lead into my love of crafting. Crafting & I clicked. I found my passion. Something that makes me...well....me. And I've had to learn to be alright with loving all kinds of crafting, although I wish there was just one thing I could focus on. I guess you could say I'm looking for my crafting niche. You know how the saying goes.....Jack of all trades, master of none. I don't want to be Jack ;)
I've since gone back to school as a Fibers major, but am taking yet another hiatus to raise our 4 blessings. I wouldn't have it any other way.
One day very soon I hope to open my own etsy shop. For me, the timing has to be just right & it's not quite time. But lovely items are in the making & I hope to share them with you very soon.
Have a fabulous day!!
