From Hobbies To Etsy!

I remember painting ceramics & learning to cross stitch as a young girl & ta-da ... a crafter was born!!!! Ever since then, I have always jumped into crafty adventures learning new arts & have had a myriad of projects going at all times!

Then came ... SCRAPBOOKING!
Oh my!! All the pretty colors & designs of the paper & the glittery embellishments .... it caught me hook, line & sinker! I soon learned that I could make just about anything out of paper ... PURE PASSION!! It started out as a personal hobby & then escaladed into more. I was honored to be a part of a couple of design teams for online scrapbooking websites & message boards & I have also had my work published in 2 major scrapbooking magazines. DREAMS. COME. TRUE. I have also worked at a local scrapbooking store ... teaching a few classes & creating store samples ... I love to see others catch that scrappin' bug!

Then came .... KNITTING!
My mom is responsible for this one!! I always thought knitting was an old lady sitting in a rocker, boy was I wrong! When I discovered that YARN is as pretty & addicting as scrapbooking paper, I was hooked again!! My mom showed me the basics & I was off again on a new adventure! I am still learning & expanding my abilities as a knitter ... but to any new challenges, I say ... BRING IT!!!

Soon I realized that there is only so much scrappin' & knitting that you can do for yourself. A friend suggested that I go public with my hobbies ... so I created The Polka Dot Sky & crossed my fingers! SUCCESS!!! THANK YOU!!

Thanks for reading my story & I hope that the results of my life long hobbies will be something that you can enjoy as well! HUGS!
