My mom happens to be one of the most creative people I know. She knits, she sews, she paints, she needle points (when needle pointing was popular) and she designs. In fact, she is an Interior Designer by trade. She is possibly one of the most crafty, creative people I know.
I mean, look at the detail on this beautiful advent calendar! Growing up, we had one similar to this but with a lot more felt cause felt was the thing of the 80′s, right? My brothers and I loved our advent calendar and I hope my children one day love this one just as much!
Now there is me. I’d say I am creative and she definitely inspires me to be even more so. As mentioned in an earlier post, My Personal Challenge, I wanted to attempt to teach myself to sew by giving myself monthly projects, my first being making a pillow. Well, the pillow did get made, by my mom. I did pick out and cut the fabric but when she was down for a visit, she sewed it together for me as I had yet to do so. My excuse, well, I had lost the sewing machine manual and I had no clue how to use it. She is a lifesaver that one.
The thing is, I know I inherited that creative gene of hers and it just needs some luring out of me. That is why I am adding a DIY/Craft tab to Bullfrogs and Bulldogs. Now that I have my very own home, it’s time I start making it into the home of our dreams. One project at a time. The list is long thus it shouldn’t be hard to come up with projects.
Stay tuned for more, much more, to come!
