Beads, Fabric and a Little Crying Girl

For some crazy reason I decided to start a blog about me and my passion for creating. Give me 3 random objects and there is a pretty good possibility I can take those things and turn them into something great and useful. I think this all began when I was 8 years old and was threatened about an event that occurred. I had received a wonderful box of beads (the kind of box that has about 30 different beads and even more is an important fact) for Christmas and decided they were just too cool to use so I let them sit in that box for several months. At this time in my wonderful life I was sharing a room with my sister (who is 3 years younger than me) who decided that those beads were, indeed, pretty awesome and started making her own jewelry with them. A little shocked and tempertantrumy, (remember I was 8) I realized if I wanted those beads I could not just let them sit around, so I took them from her and made several pieces of jewelry. I am not saying I am proud for making a young girl cry, just telling you the beginning of my story. Something clicked on in my brain after that and making things for my self has been an ongoing hobby since. Soon after I learned how to use the sewing machine and sew and between sewing and beading my mind took off in learning new skills and the endless possibilities of creating things.

Today I am a full time college student who takes comfort in knowing that the summer months will be filled with fabric of all mediums, glue and my sewing machine. Here is just some of what I have been working on in the past few months...
