Creative? Me? Absolutely not. I was never able to draw a straight line much less cut anything without folding it first. I would make a pot of coffee and spend countless mornings reading DIY and sewing blogs. I could only hope to be that creative. One Saturday I decided to go buy some fabric and reupholster a chaise lounge I was tired of complaining about. How hard could it be? Anything is better than what it looks like now. I spent the rest of the day shopping at a wholesale fabric place - FUN! Then I came home and did it. Yes - that's right I DID IT! I was so proud of my accomplishment, and it had been so fun and therapeutic. I started going to garage sales, thrift stores, and for Christmas I got a sewing machine. So here I am now making patterns, designing the cutest kids clothes on the planet, and working on all the furniture I have acquired. Now it's time I share not only my creations, but how this has helped me stand a little taller. Some days I feel optimistic and some days I feel beaten. My purpose is simple...find strength in my story and share yours or simply just enjoy my creations.
