I've been searching for the longest time to figure out what I love to do.
I have always loved to make and create things. I have also always loved working with people. I need things that don't take very long since having 2 kids means my time is limited but also things that are either yummy (like baking) and/or beautiful (sewing/crafts).
For the last few weekends one of my best friends has come over to learn how to make fondant decorations and then fill, mask, and then cover a cake with fondant in preparation for her daughter's 3rd birthday. Then today, I spent the morning with another friend showing her how to make chocolate lollipops with initials to give as favours for her son's 5th birthday. I have worked with chocolate a little in the past, but I've never made initial lollipops with chocolate before. So I spent an hour last night doing a couple tests to find the best method.
I digress.... ! As I was saying, I love to create things (especially when there's an element of figuring out how to do it) and I love to share that knowledge (must be my teaching background). So it makes sense for me to use this blog as a way to do just that - teach people how to DIY. I know, there are lots of other craft blogs that have tutorials - but I'm certain I have ideas and solutions that other people will appreciate and find useful. I'm so excited!
Let the fun begin!
