Hello! My name is Dawn and WELCOME to my craft blog.
I enjoy a wide variety of arts and crafts, from crochet to card-making, jewelry to cross-stitch and more.
Arts & crafts used to be a hobby to me. But now I have a passion to share what I make with the crafting world.
My love of crafts started when I was a child. I always loved to doodle, sketch, and draw. I took many art classes in high school.
As a teenager I began learning how to cross-stitch, work with plastic canvas, and started making beaded jewelry. I always loved rubber stamping, which turned into a love of making personal stationery and card-making.
I studied Graphic Design & Black and White Photography while attending vocational school, and continued my studies in Graphic Design at college.
I worked in retail for several years, as well as performing Customer Service duties. I’ve worked in Discount retail stores as a photo lab technician in the 1-hour photo lab, enhancing my love of Photography. I think my favorite job next to photo lab tech was when I worked in a small local craft store.
While working there I took tole painting classes, saw Bob Ross painting classes, and found 2 more crafts I thought i’d enjoy; paper quilling (paper filigree) & pysanky/pysanky. I have done some quilling and I do enjoy it. I also have some pysanka supplies, but have yet to try it. I believe I would also enjoy quilting, and cake decorating.
I relish crafting so much that I’ve thought about turning it into a small business. Time will tell.
I’m thankful for my God-given gifts & talents. I certainly couldn’t do the things that I do without Him.
Please don’t think that I’m bragging. I’m not perfect by any means. I am usually pleasantly surprised with how my projects turn out.
“I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing.” John 15:5 (NKJV)
A daily crafter is a happy crafter!
