I am starting this blog because I want to join the community of crafters and artists who have inspired me and kept me company. I am a mom of two girls, 6 years and 10 months, and while I love them dearly the "mom world" can be isolating. Perhaps with the audience of the blogosphere I can commit myself to creating and sharing on a regular basis. I also want to examine the concept of frugality and life simplification, as so many of the wonderful artists I have admired have written about. I have taken many of your ideas and applied them to my situation. I really look forward to getting to know you better!
