1. How did you start crafting?
I started crafting when I was little. I really don't remember exactly when. Both my mother & my grandmother are artists so we were always painting or creating something together. For the last 10 or 15 years my crafting skills had been sitting dormant. I was busy taking care of babies or helping run the family business so I never had any energy left to be creative. Now that we do not have the business any more & my youngest is in school I have gone back to my crafting ways. In fact my creative side has come back with a vengeance, I am constantly making things now!
My style is kind of like a person with a split personality. I like the shabby chic, girly style but I also love a good amount of rust & junk. So I guess you could say my favorite style is rusty-junky-shabby chic.
Besides crafting I chase my kids around & try to "hold down the fort" at home. I also love to blog, cook, and go to flea markets or estate sales. I'm always on the look out for something that catches my eye & turn it into something unique.
