Even though I have a craft room, I reside on my bed and create while watching old and new detective and sci-fi shows (Columbo, Castle, Sleepy Hollow, Farscape, Kojak!)

Pins and needles are all over the place; I escape bodily injury but the kiddies and hubs pay the price

Two inches of hair at any given time but I love making hair accessories

Home Depot has seen me in my pjs

Tool, supplies and machines are always on my gift-receiving list

I map-quest three places when I'm on vacation or in another state: Marshalls, Michaels and any fabric/trim/supply store (*nods* came back from Florida once with 2 suitcases of yarn; don't mess with me)

I have burnt myself, run a sewing machine needle through my finger, sliced my leg with scissors, you name it; I keep short nails because I like to feel what I'm doing; I'd rather buy supplies than eat most days and I am on spectacularly good terms with my mail-peoples

Making things with my own two hands and knowing someone appreciates it enough to buy it is the best thing ever (well, after wine, tiramisu, and apple turnovers)

I am handmade.

And thank YOU, for supporting handmade!!
