It is like quicksand. I had a friend a while back tell me I should get into jewelry, I sluffed it off. I was busy painting and finding a job in graphic design. Now 9 months later from my initial stamped metal class and I have invested more money than I care to share. More time than I thought I had and absolutely love it. I feel like I am just skimming the surface with beading and stamping metal, but feel like the possibilities are so vast. Baptism bracelets are no longer enough, I need more. So I am exploring. Maybe ornaments, maybe bookmarks, maybe more jewelry. I don't know, but I love creating things. I just spent some more money tonight on patina and looking at buying a Vintaj Big Kick. I will definitely be showing off my new creations. Until then here is my meager bookmark. Can't wait to get my loot in the mail! Oh and thank the Lord the kids are in school. I have work to do!
I am a jack of all trades, but I feel as if I am a master to none. Always trying new things and once I start getting too familiar with one medium, I seem to change it up. At least that is my motto. I pick up hobbies like a dog picks up ticks. It is a sickness. I am a mother to three beautiful babies. My oldest is 6 and my youngest is 18 months. Yikes! People ask how I find the time, but this truly is my sanctuary. I am blessed to be able to stay home with my kiddies and work out my passion for creativity. I also have a great partner in my husband, Jed. He is always willing to help me out in my crazy antics. I am bona fide (love Oh Brother Where Art Thou). I graduated with a degree in fine arts. In my prior life, I worked as a graphic designer and owned a party rental business. I feel like I every year I hit the ground running. I guess that is how I like it.
I am a stay at home mom to two wonderful children a 3 year old and a 1 year old. It is a good thing they are so cute because otherwise I am not sure we would make it out of the toddler years. My husband is simply amazing and puts up with all my crazy ventures.
