So…I have been going back and forth, reading an researching about the right way to do this…blogging. I finally just came to the decision to just do it. Plunge head first into the deep end of the pool. So, here I am!
I consider myself to be a “multicreative” person (I don’t even think that is a real thing. I literally just made it up). Crafty Vee will be the place I come to to share all the things I love with you! What are those things, you ask?
My first love. I started writing when I was in elementary school. My mother was my first editor! I have since gone on to write books (You can check them out on Amazon) and a ton of short stories (which I will periodically post here on the blog). You can also expect to see tutorials, printables and lots of tips for authors like myself!
Crochet and I have been acquainted since I was very young. My mother taught me how to do my very first stitches (see a theme? I get it from my mama!). It wasn’t until about a year ago that I found a pattern I loved and that was it! I don’t tend to like making the same things over and over again, so I love to buy and create from beautiful patterns. Expect to see me not only share my favorite patterns and new ones that I found here, but see what I created from them and my own personal reviews!
Making pretty pictures? Are you kidding me? Since Microsoft created clip art I have been in love with graphic design. So much, that I went to school at Sessions Professioal College for Design in New York for it and did it professionally for 9 years. I did mostly custom book covers, promotional design and web design. While I no longer do it in a professional sense, I do still love to open up Photoshop or Illustrator and create beautiful things. So, look out for when I post them. Some of them may even be for sale! 😉
This came a a HUGE surprise for me. I have only been sewing for 1 year. That’s right. 1 freaking year. Like I said, I love patterns and I came across one on Pinterest that I liked and decided to buy a sewing machine and give it a try. Granted, I had NEVER in my life even touched a sewing machine, so the fact that I was purchasing one to do this was insane! So, I got it, tried it and loved it! My family was shocked at how good I was having had no previous experience or teaching in sewing. Frankly, so was I! I created my very first doll, Penelope and the rest is history. You can check out my other dolls at www.CuteLittleCrumbsnatchers.com.
