HI All!!! Welcome to my Blog Site. The title says it all. I AM the Not So Crafty Crafter!!
I live in Iowa, and am a mom to two boys, one with special needs, so needless to say, my life can be hectic. As a New Years resolution, I decided I needed to do something to help me relax a bit more, reduce stress, you know the deal. Soooooo I decided to jump into the world of Arts and Crafts! Anyone that knows me well knows this is completely unchartered territory for me. In the past I have made attempts at being “crafty”. I still get jokes from my spouse, 21 years later, about an attempt I made at stenciling!! Sewing machines have come into my possession, only to be given away when hubby wasn’t looking. In all fairness, he has tried to get me to start a hobby, I just wasn’t receptive at the time. I’m not sure how, why or when that all changed, but I am jumping in with both feet! And…I am going to share it ALL with you!!! I started out by jumping on the Adult Coloring book bandwagon. From there I was enticed with Art Journaling, and now I am dabbling in card making. I will post pictures soon of some of the things I have been playing around with. I am by no means claiming to be an Artist, just someone playing with some great supplies and having a blast doing it! Not sure I can even teach you all anything, but I do hope I can motivate a few of you to try something new, or different! Hope you enjoy the ride.
