Since I remember, my mother has always been artistic. I absolutely have to give credit to her when it comes to my artsy abilities. When I was little, I remember this awesome red and white fabric notebook she made me. There I would draw anything that I put my mind to. Not only that, but she would also make and decorate my birthday cakes which I absolutely loved, her and my grandma would make me clothes, they would also both knit and crochet which I always wanted to do. My grandmother also fed my craving to learn. So when it comes down to art, I really do love ALL THINGS ART!!
Even though I wasn’t really taught by them, I eventually practiced and learned basics from just watching and reading on How-To guides I would pick up at my local craft stores. I’ve picked up a few skills along the way.

My grandfather was also an excellent carpenter, in turn sparked my fuel wanting to learn woodworking. As a child, rarely was I allowed to use any of his tools without supervision of course but eventually I took classes in high school and wanted to make my future career to be an architect. Time has changed that but I still love the idea.
Now being a stay at home mommy I want my children to have some of that love for art I also had as a child. Whatever I may be doing at the moment, they always want to join in too. We work out a plan for everyone to join in…eventually.
As I future goal, I would like to improve all of my skills. I wouldn’t call myself an expert by any means but it sure does have a nice ring to it.
