Introduction I became an empty nester at a young age (I was pretty young when I started having kids); and when my children left the house it was a very difficult time for me. I really struggled to find a purpose for my life. Through the past four years I have begun to reconnect with my creative side, and through that process I rediscovered my passion for crafting, repurposing, recycling, upcycling and finding uses for all sorts of forgotten, but wonderful things - including myself. Being creative has literally given me back my life. In turn, I hope you find something useful and purposeful in the pages of my blog. Cheers and happy procraftinating!
Interests Loving God, making stuff, the beauty of the natural world, hanging out with my kids when they're around, sunshine, funny movies, good food and good wine. I have really enjoyed journeying into craft blog land. I'm so impressed by the talent and the humor, and the diversity. I love the sewing, the gluing, the repurposing, the artsy, the fartsy, all of it!
Favorite Movies Coen Brothers flicks, Juno, Lars and the Real Girl, The Waitress, Once, Napoleon Dynamite, Little Miss Sunshine, The Hangover, many more.
Favorite Music All of it, mostly.
Favorite Books I'm an avid reader. Cormac McCarthy, John Steinbeck, Michael Chabon, Junot Diaz, Anita Diamant
