I've been a crafter for as long as I can remember. I've always liked making things and recently started re-purposing and refinishing items from thrift stores and garage sales. It brings me joy to take something that someone no longer wants and make something new and beautiful out of it.
I've knitted for almost 10 years, but I have never gotten the hang of crocheting! I have more scrapbooks than I know what to do with and my pinterest boards have more things than I could ever make! I decorated most of my apartment by re-purposing things I have found or been given. I feel that making things "new" again is a environmentally friendlier way to decorate and live.
