Starting Fresh

June 2, 2013 Posted by Natalie

In October 2010, I had a life-changing medical event, as so many people experience and for which there is such a stigma attached. Suffice it to say that I have been there, done that, and have the medical records to prove it. The one constant in my life has been the pure joy I get out of taking a bunch of disparate things and “making pretty” out of them.

I am a handcrafter from way back–think late 1970s/early 1980s. I started with needlecrafts–embroidery, cross-stitch, and the like–and later on I got into quilting and making jewelry. (Basically, if it involves assembling a lot of pieces, I’m into it!) I also like to take photos, but those results are met with varying degrees of success.

In the past, I have tried and miserably failed to chronicle huge amounts of my life, as the maintenance of the blog began to infringe on the time needed for real life. This time around, I am going in with a much simpler plan–create a pretty and interesting blog, and make it something I am proud to have out there for all the world to see.

The frequency of updates will be as I have something interesting to say. Lucky for all of us, I have 30+ years of crafts in various states of finality/completion to give me plenty of material to start with. Who knows, maybe this will help me finish a few of those nearly-finished projects I have in my stash.

Thanks for reading, and I hope you find your way back to my little corner of the web!
