I have always loved the process of creating something by hand. The “something” has evolved over the years now focused around two main themes – baking and paper crafts. Growing up I built my own dollhouse and accessories out of things I found around the house. Thinking back, this was mostly trash but I loved it anyway. Later I moved on to jewelry – friendship bracelets and beads galore. Once I lived on my own I started baking for friends and co-workers on birthdays and holidays. To go with the treats I created packaging and special cards. It’s a wonderful feeling when you can brighten someone’s day with a little piece of dough, some ribbon and a bit of paper.
I hope you find something that helps with your current project and inspires your next.
