Stories. That’s what this site is all about. Sharing experiences in a tangible way with art, craft, family, food, movies and TV shows, books, even shopping.
We are all a crafty chica in some way. And we know that being a crafty chica isn’t just about using our hands, it’s also very much a state of mind. The same way we think about different ways to use paint, we apply that creative perspective to life. Decision making. Style. Topics of conversation. That’s why you’ll find a variety of topics on this site. I share recipes, travel, movie reviews, shopping lists, my Phoenix faves, a little fashion, and beauty.
And of course, lots of arts and crafts!
To me, making things is all about processing our feelings. Whether it’s happiness or stress, there’s no better way to get right with yourself than to sit down and make something. If you truly allow yourself to be in the moment while creating, you can shut off all the noise and distractions in your brain. Shut down the self-doubt and just have fun exploring your badass thought process!
I’m addicted to making things. To me, it’s healing. I’ve struggled with my weight all my life. Some months are healthier than others. But when it comes to making things, that is steady and sure. It’s not even about self-confidence, it’s about letting go of fear and embracing mistakes as part of the learning process. I often give stuff away I make, but I also sell items in my store. But my FAVORITE aspect is sharing the inspiration. I call it “spreading the gospel of glitter.” That little bit of light can lead the way to something new and wonderful.
Will everything we make turn out fabulous? Not always. Like that saying – it’s not about the destination, it’s about the journey! My journey has been a loca one, but I would have it any other way! I never imagined I would be a full-time artist, writer, and digital entrepreneur, but here I am. You can always count on me to be here to offer you ideas and inspiration!
Thanks so much for taking the time to read this!
Love & light,
