So how long have you been crafting? Since I was a kid
What was the first craft that got you started? (not something momma or teacher made you do) I sewed a dress for a doll I had
What do you enjoy doing now? Sewing, painting, crocheting, knitting, sculpting
Got any Pinterest Projects that you want to give a shot? Yes, but there are so many I don't know where to start.
Do you sell your work, or is it for your own pleasure? Some. I usually end up using it for my kids, but if someone asks, I will make something and sell it
Have your kids got the crafting bug? some have. It would be great if they could do it on their own, but right now, it usually means spending the entire evening showing them how to glue something together
Has your significant other? no, he writes music though
Do you have a website where you post your work other than here? yes Me Made Boutique although I am awful at keeping it updated
To read updates about our baby born with major birth defects, like our Facebook page
So how long have you been crafting?I was always the child trying to put something together. even if it meant I was in the garage with a hammer and nails or inside splattering paint all over the dining table.
What was the first craft that got you started? (not something momma or teacher made you do) Don't remember. I've just always been if I wanted something and couldn't get it I tried to make it or something similar. That and arts and crafts from day care to Sunday school were always enjoyable.
What do you enjoy doing now? Scrapbooking though I haven't in a while, crotcheting, and sewing. The sewing became work lately but it is becoming enjoyable again.
Got any Pinterest Projects that you want to give a shot? I don't do Pinterest
Do you sell your work, or is it for your own pleasure? Both. Scrapbooking I do only for me. I make my babies and friends babies crotchet blankets but I sell them to my mom for her friends baby showers. She teaches and it seems several people are pregnant every year and for them I use the really nice yarn. I basically give it to her for what it costs me to make. The sewing is currently all made and sold for/through our business. Hopefully, I am going to change that soon. Or have a very pregnant temper tantrum! Not grown up of me but for now I use the hormonal excuse and only rarely pull them on my husband.
Have your kids got the crafting bug? My oldest is about to turn 4 but yes. He likes to paint and sit in my lap to help me work my sewing machine. He has recently discovered my felt scraps and tacky glue so he is in heaven when it is time to "work".
Has your significant other? Absolutely not though on rare occassions he will surprise me. He doesn't actually craft anything but he is very adept at turning my vague ideas into workable reality and bailing me out when I have bitten off more than I can chew. Plus, he does all my math for when I am making a quilt. I'm terrible at math.
Do you have a website where you post your work other than here? I post some stuff to my FB but other than that we have our business website (Busy Body Pets) though it doesn't have any of my sewn things on it yet. It is new and still needs to be updated to show all of our products.
Arwen, I love the dream catcher. I want to make one too, but I doubt it'd look that good and I don't know where to start!!
That one is easy. Buy a brass ring from the craft store. Wrap it in something hippies would like. Get your doily, tea stain that sucker. Or I guess you could be prissy and leave it white. Or just buy an off white one. Anyway... Get some thin twine, secure your doily to your ring. Tie stuff from Grandma's scrap box to the end. Done! Hang and sit back and nod when people compliment you on it because you know it's awesome.
Edit: don't forget they used Lightroom or something for the photograph so don't judge yours on theirs. You can make anything gorgeous with the proper editing program. *coughINSTAGRAMcough* Not saying ours will look horrible. lol Ours will be awesome!
