What I do

 This is the very beginning.

I am intimidated about writing a blog, there are so many great ones out there.  For me this is a great way to begin tracking all of my crafting experiments.  Traditionally I have used a note book and pasted in bits of this and that, but here I can capture images of things in process in addition to thoughts and ideas.  I wish I had more images of things I made as a child.  I went through a fairly heavy paper mache phase.  I remember making a volcano, masks, a cat, a dog, and this monster which ended up covering my laundry basket.

He is by no means a work of art, but I was never afraid to try.  

In the present I try to remember that as my adult brain is much more critical.  Experimenting isn't always pretty but I like the mystery in not always knowing how something is going to turn out.  I feel now that i'm finally at a place where i'm not afraid to share my mistakes and hopefully some of my successes.
