I am 25 and newly engaged to the man of my dreams. I have been blessed with 3 beautiful children from my first marriage, a 4 year old son & ID twin daughters that just turned 2! We live on the south end of wonderful Whidbey Island in Washington state.
In my spare time (mostly naps & after 9PM)I LOVE to sew & craft. I have tried to sell stuff here & there, I would really LOVE start teaching sewing lessons… but I need to get a second & 3rd machine first! Over the last 6 months I have realized that I am good at seeing an idea, or making it in my head & transitioning that too reality… most of the time with clothing & using no patterns! I am also interested in possibly designing patterns when the kids are a little older & in school. I also enjoy volunteering my extra time whenever I have any :).
With the struggling economy & the need to go green I have also been working on great inexpensive things that you can reconstruct/recycle into something else new all over again! Through out this I have talked to a lot of people… I am always getting asked how I did this, or where did you get that… then the ‘you only paid that much for it!’ This has giving me a flickering flame and I started blogging! I never thought people would read this blog… 1.5 years & 360,000+ hits later I was proven wrong. I enjoy inspiring people to give it a shot & love helping them with free patterns & tutorials. Because of this in the near future I hope to start 2 new weekly blogs… one will be about ways to save money & spend wisely… including stuff on how to get the best mileage from your vehicle & cut your grocery bill in half! The second blog is gonna be about garage selling! No matter what the reason it seems to be coming back into style which makes me happy because I never stopped loving it! I plan on sharing my loot, giving tips on how to get the most garage selling in, when to set limits & also how to through a awesome & profitable yard sale yourself!
Anyways there’s a little about me! If you enjoy my tutorials & have pictures to share or have any questions you can always email me.
