I follow many craft and design blogs and have been creating more and more lately. I love to create things. I love the high I get when I accomplish something with my hands. When I draw, paint, sew, craft, scrapbook, etc...it puts my mind into a calm. My mind if very frantic most of the time. That makes it hard for me to function on a daily basis like that without a break.
I decided it was time that I step up to the plate and show off what I can do. I don't follow directions well, I take an idea and tweak it to the way I want it. I will however try to explain what I did, why I did it and the changes I have made from an original design.
Now, a little background on me. I am the wife to a wonderful man, the mother to two very rambunctious boys and two lovable dogs. I attended art school at Syracuse University, where I had to unfortunately drop out. I was going for my BFA with a concentration in illustration. I ended up finishing up my BFA at the Univ of Mary Hardin Baylor with a concentration in studio arts. As a small child, I was always creating something. My elementary school art teacher told me while I was in the first grade that I would become an artist. He was right. Creating is a large piece of who I am and what makes me, ME! So, please enjoy my creative outlet. Please feel free to comment. Please remember that all images I post are copyrighted and do not re-post them without my permission. If you use any of my ideas, please link back to my original post.
