It seems to be becoming a trend that I am blogging on things that I buy - I need to show some restraint!! There are just so many cool things out there in shopping cyberspace (and cities and towns across the USA) that I am able to find needs to fill! My new craft room has pretty bold built in drawers, cabinets, and shelves in a bold shade of red. The walls, however, are (ug) white. And I don't have the patience to search for, hire, and monitor a painter (nor do I want a DIY project at this time). I found a fabulous quick fix to boring walls - Vinyl Wall Art! This business has advertised on blogs, which is where I first saw it, and then saw that they have an Etsy shop - Holly. I order a few birds and some flowers in some bright and cheerful colors to make my room fun. In addition, there are funky vinyl decals for cars - car art - that express the owner as a 'knitting nerd' or 'crafty geek'. Love these. I'll post a photo of my room when they arrive and get mounted.
I am a busy mom of two very active boys. A part time substitute teacher. An active volunteer. Chauffeur, short order cook, referee (the mom things!)
I craft for the fun of it, even though I constantly wish I could put forth the time and effort to make it a business, but then wonder if I would still enjoy it.
I make jewelry, often with repurposed vintage pieces, mosaics, collage, sew a bit. I would love be able to paint. And make clothes.
I love Japanese crafts and pop culture, and the designer vinyl toys that have stemmed from this. I may be too old, but I love Hello Kitty and friends!
