When I was expecting my first child, it was my first summer off as a teacher. One day I turned on the TV after my husband left for work and I came across the HGTV's Carol Duval Show. I had never watch a show such as that one. I fell in love with it. It was my kind of show! Three different craft techniques in 30 minutes. What else could I ask for!!! So I woke up at 6:25am every day to catch the 6:30am show...during my time off (Crazy! I know). I just enjoyed it that much. So pretty soon after I started "following" the show, I found out that the show was already in the reruns, so I tried to watch every single one! I even recorded a few on VHS :) So I learn so many things about paper crafting, card making and polymer clay. I started walking the aisles of Hobby Lobby and noticed that the products I needed were not as expensive as I thought. That is when my collections of tools and crafts products started. The Hobby Lobby 40% off coupon and the clearance section at the store became my best friends.
After many trips to Hobby Lobby, I had enough products to start making stuff. I started working with polymer clay, it is such a fun medium to work with. I even made jewelry and sold a few items at a craft show. I will post about that some other time, but first I will focus on card making since it has been part of my life for a long, long time.
Enough of background information, stay tuned for my next post about card making, my new sketch series, my new tools and my past publications on CARDS Magazine.
Thanks for stopping by!!!
