About Me


I am a wife, mother, programmer and lover of all things creative. I especially love to make unique, cute, simple and inexpensive things from everyday items.

After getting married and having a baby a few years ago, I slowly lost all my free time and my ability to pursue my beloved hobbies. Something strange seems to happen when working a full time job, paying a mortgage and being consumed by the natural progression of life. The 8 to 5 workday, surrounded by blinking computer screens and three grey walls sucked out all of my creativity and imagination. During the day, I work as a computer programmer, developing software. While this does require a certain degree of creativity, it's not quite the same as crafting something more tangible and beautiful that you could see before your eyes. I do love creating software, but I also love making more physical things. I love creating things with my hands and heart, not just with abstract lines of code.

This blog is my attempt to rediscover what I have lost. Whenever I write a post, I am exhilarated. Creating, photographing and writing are activities that I truly enjoy and could do daily. I am asked often, "How do you find time to blog?" And I have to admit, it does take up much of my free time (my husband can attest to this), but, like with any other love in life, you make time for it. I blog during my lunch break and after I put my daughter to bed. During the weekends, I spend full days crafting blog posts for the week. It is truly a labor of love. I hope you see the passion that I have radiating from each post and enjoy going through each tutorial with the same joy that I have writing them.

Favorite Quotes:
I'm actually not a big Apple fan but I do think Steve Jobs said some meaningful things in his lifetime.

 "Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary."  -Steve Jobs

"Almost everything--all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure--these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart."  -Steve Jobs

"Here's to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes... the ones who see things differently -- they're not fond of rules... You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, but the only thing you can't do is ignore them because they change things... they push the human race forward, and while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius, because the ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do."  -Steve Jobs

  2. I never get all the time I would like to be creative, but sometimes I just have to be! If it means the house is filthy, my day job is neglected, my husband hates me, my kid is unfed...oh, oops!! Seriously though, glad that I'm not the only one who needs to craftify and blog x

  20. También puede visitar una tienda de ladrillo y mortero de Michael Kors o su sitio web y comprar directamente un bolso Michael Kors desde allí. Usar un bolso de Michael Kors les permite a los demás reconocer que el habitante urbano educado toma la moda realmente con seriedad. Los bolsos de hombro son particularmente refinados y elegantes.

    En vacker konstnärlig skapelse av vävt läder, som ger ett skalskaligt utseende - liknar en snakeskin eller fiskhud, linjer utsidan av påsen. Läderens bältros är små läderringar. Det finns också gyllene accenter på väskan. Slutresultatet är svagt liknar kedjepost.

  21. Today many parents can't afford to buy video games for their kids, one because of the life is starting to become more expensive and because the Mondial crisis who is become longer.
    Well, I like to these Friv games that are the way I try to add more and more of these to the site. Many categories of the website have more flash games than unity or HTML. Bellow has listed more important categories of the website.
    Still there are available brain games who will help your brain to stay young and healthy keeping you away of disease.
    Most played are 2 player where you can chose to play it even in single player vs computer most of cool Friv games.
