Dive in!

When it comes to crafts, I've never been afraid to dive in. I make stuff up as I go and I figure things out without too much issue. I taught myself to sew when I was younger, 15 or 16 maybe. When I think about it now, figuring out how to make little bags and scrub tops for my nurse-mom without GOOGLE? That's pretty impressive. I am impressed with little me.

Anyway, when I was 15 my mom bought me a Brother sewing machine from Ames on clearance. Fast forward to me being 31. My mom bought me another Brother. :) What a difference a new sewing machine makes!

I have been sewing a lot! It's been very satisfying to make a project from start to finish without swearing at my sewing machine every 45 seconds.


  1. Lindsay! You commented on my blog and when I tried to reply, I discovered you are a no-reply blogger. I'd hate for you to miss out on the giveaway fun. It's an easy fix. Just go to your blog settings and search around (off the top of my head I don't remember the exact process!). Hope you get it fixed!
