The start of a Handmade Home

on July 24, 2012

I realized something when I was pregnant with my first daughter.  I am crafty.  Who knew!  I have dabbled in a few things like cross stitch, but was never bitten by the bug like I was while pregnant.  Maybe it was the nesting instinct, but ever since I have been on a self imposed mission to make things.  It started out small, with making crochet toys for my first and then soon after second baby girl. 

The little stuffed animals are much loved, but why stop there when there can be a whole playset (more on that to come later).  And why stop with crochet, when there are so many other mediums out there to make fun toys for my girls.

Now with the addition of my Pinterest account, I have decided that I will make so many things for my home.  I want my home to not only be a reflection of my personal style, but my personal desire to get back to the basics and make things.  I want to make the decor, repurpose old furniture, anything I can to let my creative juices flow in the house.  I need to be on the beach, near the water to be happy.  Since that can’t be all the time, I will bring it to myself with the choices I make for my home.

This blog is now here to chronicle the journey to may Happy, Hectic, Handmade Home!  Everyone is welcome here!  So kick off your shoes, grab a margarita, and enjoy the company!
