Wherefore blogging?

I decided to start this blog because I wanted to post photos of all my crafting adventures. As of late I have been preoccupied with crafting for other people-- primarily new babies, but some other projects have slipped in too.

I have been crafting for as long as I can remember (summer camp projects like ribbon barrettes were an early delight), and I love it. I'm always game to try something new, and it's especially rewarding to me to make things and give them away. (I can only hope that the recipients of said projects find them enjoyable as well, but who knows? Maybe I'm one of those people that others talk about in hushed tones later... "That was nice of her and I know she spent a lot of time making it, but what are we going to do with it?")

Anyway, I love the idea of open-source crafting, so my goal here is to post projects that might inspire others to make stuff. Now, to be upfront about it all... you should know that I'm a bit of a renegade crafter. I don't much care for patterns, though I'm all about mastering techniques. And I'm always excited to try something new, which means I've had strange encounters with many craft forms, including:

silver clay jewelry making
...and more
