Who knew?

When I got my Silhouette Cameo in September of last year, I got it so I could create and cut more intricate designs for my sewing projects. Sewing is my first love. I had no idea the door of creativity that would open up with this machine! Since I got it, I've used it once to cut the Rainbow Dash Cutie Mark for my daughter's Halloween costume. After that I picked out some paper to make my niece a birthday card and then somewhere along the way I discovered the SVG Cuts website and it was all over from there! Who knew you could make such amazing things out of paper! Paper people!

Two of my favorite things about sewing is the fabric and how tangible the whole thing (whatever it is I happen to be making) is when it's done. There are soo many fabrics out there. So many different colors and textures. The sky is the limit! When you've finished with your creative process and you've completed your project, you then have something tangible. You can see it, touch it, smell it (?), use it, admire it, and be proud of it. I had no idea that it would be the same way in the paper world. I've never been a scrapbooker. I'm horrible (usually) about organizing pictures. But this...I can make pumpkin carriages (more on this later), and trains, and boxes, the list goes on.

I've started this "blog", not so much to share what I make with everyone, but more as a way to document what I've done for my own happiness. Even if I'm not entirely happy with something, I always have a sense of pride and I wanted some place to put it all together. If you should happen to stop by and browse (and I hope you do) that's great! Even if you don't like what I've done I hope that I can at least inspire you to be creative in your own right.
