Writing a blog is an idea I have had for a while. I thought about it this past summer while I was voraciously crafting in my craft closet, which by the end of summer became my craft room. Finally, I am making this idea come to life! I hope to share fun craft ideas, yummy recipes, and the general adventures my husband and I have around the Carolina coast!
By day, I am a high school history teacher, and after school (and summer break) I enjoy cooking, baking, reading, crafting, yard sale-ing, bike riding, being outside, and traveling. I was fortunate to grow up in a home where my mom did the cooking, cleaning, etc. Needless to say, in college my roommates were not so impressed with the "cheeseburger soup" I made them for dinner one evening. After getting married 4 years ago, it became clear that I would become the chef at our house. (Insert husband's frozen pizza debacle, in which he left the cardboard on the pizza and put it in the oven.) Luckily, I found out that I really enjoyed it! As for crafting, this is probably something I have enjoyed my whole life. Growing up on a farm in the country in Ohio, I (and every other kid in the neighborhood) was in 4-H. I remember making all kinds of things from wreaths - which my mom still has hanging in their house - to sewing projects like jumpers (with cat buttons!) and pajamas (sort of).
While my fabulous mom is crafty in her own right, she would never own up to it. But, she was the one who helped me with all of my "sewing" projects when I was younger. She IS talented and can quilt! My fabulous mother-in-law and her sisters are crafty too! Sallie is a card-maker extraordinaire and can also quilt. Suzie makes gorgeous pottery that adorns our home as well as being a master crochet-er. Amy, taught me how to make jewelry, which I LOVE to do. She is super-duper talented and has made the jewelry for my wedding party as well as some of my friends.
So, stick around, check out my posts, feel free to comment. I hope you enjoy!
