Tackling Life with My Heart, Hands, and Faith


"Why do I make things?
Well because I enjoy it, of course...
but it also somehow helps me remember who I am and who I belong too.

I have been an avid crafter for as long as I can remember.
Crafting is something I've just always done, something I've always loved...

Being creative is not a single act, but the act of living itself.

It's being on fire with imagination, ignited by the certainty of my relationship with a living God ...

It’s knowing that my life has been crafted and built on a foundation that is true.

It's knowing that I have a purpose and that I have been fearfully and wonderfully made by the greatest creator of all.

I do what I love...and I love what I do....

 
 
 Keep calm and craft on!

  3. My crafting has certainly helped me to keep grounded since losing my dear husband (of nearly 43 years) last may. The Cuddlies have been a real boon.
