After spending several frustrating hours trying to navigate a world that is entirely foreign to me, (dashboards and templates and themes, oh my!) I am cautiously optimistic about starting my own blog. As a busy working mother with a precocious toddler, I ask myself, “Do I need yet another hobby/pastime/commitment?” The answer is a resounding “No!” Yet, here I sit, brimming with excitement at the prospect of undertaking a fresh new project!
The other day, I stumbled across a blog entitled “Craftiness is not optional.” This could easily be my slogan…too bad it’s taken;) From an early age, my fabulous mother enrolled my sister and me in a multitude of crafty classes at our local rec centres- holiday crafts, jewellery making, candle making, sewing, you name it. I feel fortunate to have had my creative side encouraged and nurtured from such an early age. It definitely took a backseat during my years of graduate studies, (forensic psychologist by day, crafter by night) but it seems that with pregnancy and motherhood came a resurgence of interest and inspiration.
I hope to use this tiny space on the interwebs to document my crafty pursuits, and hopefully interject a bit of humour and mommy anecdotes along the way. Welcome and enjoy!
