Well here I am taking a step into the blog world and exposing myself and my creative side...
I have always been creative, I have always tried new "craft" ideas or messed around with "art" In college I did a lot of mosaic step stones for customers and had a good little gig going on, except you can't ship those bad boys so I only did them locally and it was fun. School, work, and calluses and somewhat of a carpel tunel issue came into play and I stopped. No joking aside, those tile cutters are KILLER on your hands!
I work part time and have a three year old little boy. One night I just decided I was going to get the ol' paints out and see what happend. My husband and son were both asleep so it gave me the quite and the space I needed to just get messy and get right into it. All of my papers in middle school and high school were covered in doodles and the margins would be completely full of them. It truly is how I listen! I have to be using my hands. Even when I taught school my agenda for the faculty meeting looked like that! (maybe that was just a way to make it through class and meetings :)
THIS is what started the whole shebang, an outlet that I clearly needed to keep my head straight!
