There are so many things that i want to share and I never take the time to sit down and put them on paper or on the computer... and I think it is time. I just finished 4 days of classes in the Making Ends Meet studio with Kat Allison of copperloom.com. I can't say when I have had so much fun playing with paints, fibers and textiles and the ideas of what to do with it all just keep coming! Watch the Making Ends Meet newsletter by signing up online at makingendsmeet.com for all the plans that we have concocted as they are unveiled.
So "who am I, you say"? Let me tell you. I am a creative spirit with a sense of adventure and play to throw in the mix. I am a shop owner, a wife to the most wonderful husband, and a mother to the two best sons ever. I am one who is lucky enough to be able to say that what I do for a living is the same thing that I do for relaxation. I create, I play and then work in between. How lucky can you get?
I have owned the Making Ends Meet fabric store for 25 years this year. It has drawn people from states around and we have been so lucky to meet so many wonderful people. About 10 years ago, I had the need to take care of "me" for awhile and found that art just really soothed my soul. This passion has turned into a wonderful working studio in the back of Making Ends Meet where we give classes and have lots of guest artists in to play.
I would say that I am primarily a textile and fiber "artist" with a little wood and paint thrown in for good measure. I love to create and I am willing to try anything once... well almost anything!
I hope you will join me on this blogging journey and share in the excitement of the artists that visit and the projects that we create!
