Some of my very first memories were those of doing some sort of craft project with my mother and father.  From the first moment I held a crayon in my hand I knew that I loved creating.

 

With parents who were both creatively talented in different ways...I had a lot to keep up with.  And  because of them, I learned so much about so many different types of crafts easily. 

 

One of my favorite jobs was working for a crafting mail order company here in my town.  I remember I went into the interview nervous not sure what they would ask me and I hoped that all that I did know would be somehow related to this job.  The owners list of questions were all craft related....of course....and when I answered everything correctly, she hired me on the spot.  Later on she confided to me that all of the other candidates had no idea what a rocaille  bead was so how could they work there.  After a month I was given a raise and I became part of the creative design team. 

 

Later on in life I was lucky to be able to implement my knowledge of crafting into a career working for one of the countries top Needlework Design Companies.  This afforded me a look into the other side of the hand crafts I knew and loved....the " behind the scenes"  journey from an idea to a finished product in my home....and helped me better understand why things cost what they do on the retail front.

 

There is not a corner anywhere in my home that there isn't something craft related. 

 

Be it the attic, basement and mudroom where the supplies are stored, or the spaces of my house that have the completed projects are on display...all of me and my creative heart is here....ready to inspire you.

 

Craft: Making my own Minion Pumpkin

August 17, 2013



I have been wanting to do this project for so long but in order to do it, you need a pumpkin or a group of pumpkins and those are not really around yet. I did see those foam pumpkins that you can carve yourself in the Michael's stores and they are sooo expensive I hesitated to buy one for a few weeks now.  I thought if I do this project, I can paint on real pumpkins and when they rot I can toss them.  Or I can wait for a sale on the foam and have it always...and maybe make Santa caps for them for Christmas.
