Hi I am Chelsea,
I am a stay at home mom to 2 completely adorable boys! Mr. M (2) and Hansome H (9 months). My boyfriend and baby daddy, Jay makes that famous ADL cheese when he is not home playing with us or giving me an extra set of hands so I can unleash my Singer or Brother serger! We have a fairly humble life, and are completely smitten with our little family life! We started off partners in all things party and fun, and then blessed with Mr. M switch for partners in parenthood! We have been going strong since with no looking back and make our own kinds of fun in the world! I tease him and let him know he is the pinky to my brain bahahaha. No–all kidding aside, he is a great man, and really makes my life so much sunnier!
I love funky conversation pieces above “fancier” things!! I really love the look of handmade, or I should say homemade things!! I think that we should give more thought to shopping with local crafsters, cooks, bakers and etc. I love giving unique and personal gifts. I am also starting my small sewing business from home, I am hoping to get started here full force by the Summer of 2013. I will hopefully be covering some of that journey here as well!
I love to do odd little crafts, I admit I am an amateur which is kind of why I wanted to sort of document my journey into the crafting world. I stick to pretty much sewing, but hope not to be limited to just that!! My biggest sources of inspiration are: My beautiful sons, Mr M, and Handsome H, my Mother and her love for all shiny and glitter, vintage, Whimsical books and stories (Alice in Wonderland). I can find inspiration everywhere, but time is a whole other story!
To those that decide to follow, I really hope that you will share your site as well, always love seeing other crafters and learn what I can from them!! We all need inspiration or simply motivation sometimes am I right? Please critique fairly, but most of all critique, I take it well I promise ❤ I would also ask that any work of mine that you find you would like to try yourself, go ahead, if you document it online I do ask that you give credit where it is due. I try to be fair in doing so myself! If I use something specifically from a source I will gladly credit it as such 🙂 Thank you in advance.
Don’t forget to Stay Silly 🙂
