Creating Your Own Beauty

I always say it jokingly - but I collect hobbies.  No matter what, I always seem to pick up something that's artsy, and go with it.  I started making the most basic cards in Grad School, as something to do.  I have taken multiple classes on card making, stamping, techniques, etc.  I've been to Scrapfest 3 times.  

After Grad School, I began taking Wilton Cake Decorating Classes.  I aspire to some day attend the Wilton School and take Sugar Blowing, and other such amazing technique classes.

During October, I learned how to knit, and by did I!  I thinking I'm going to take some classes in the next few months at the Yarn Barn downtown - it's time to start making more than long rectangles!

I've also always wanted to know how to quilt.  Well - I've finally bitten the bullet and purchased a sewing machine!  I had so much fun at the fabric store yesterday - and found out that some of my favorite scrapbooking companies are now making fabric!  I'm excited to buy a giant folding table and create a sewing/crafting table.

I believe I need to choose some cheaper hobbies!  But no matter what, it seems like there's always something for me to create - and to be able to find my own beauty - even if skies are grey.  As Eleanor Rosevelt once said -  “The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.”  


Here what Ive been creating the last few weeks.  (all stamps from the Unity Stamp Company )
