Hello everyone. My name is Michelle and welcome to my blog. I created this blog as a creative outlet so that I could share my love of crafts, sewing, painting, upcycling junk, and more.
From a young age I always had a knack for crafting and sewing. I took my love of sewing and fashion and went to college and earned my first degree in Fashion Merchandising and Product Development. I ended up becoming an Area Sales Manager for a couple major department stores where I learned a great deal about that side of the fashion industry and of course bought a lot of clothes. Boy oh boy do I love to shop.
Fast forward quite a few years and careers, and I started a small business where I sold my handmade pillows, painted furniture and other home décor items, taught workshops and retailed a line of chalk and clay paint. This is where I decided that what made me happy was crafting and painting till my heart was content. However, due to my husband’s new job and the fact that we will be moving around a lot, keeping an actual location in a store just wasn’t feasible anymore.
Knowing that I wanted to make a career out of being a crafter and sharing my knowledge and gifts with anyone that would listen, I began searching for a way I could do that while moving around a lot. After some soul searching and brainstorming, this blog was born.
I am excited to share with you the many crafts and techniques I have learned along the way and I hope you enjoy the journey as much as I do.
That being said,………..let the journey begin.
