That's a good start for someone who has been actively crafting for over a year now. It's been fun and I look forward to another year of crafting with my heart.
MY HISTORY OF CRAFTING
I actually started crafting when I was 4 years old in Kindergarten. I discovered that it was my "thing" when I thirteen years old and I made a collage on a black notebook. I also used to make gifts for all my friends. When I got to collage, I made a small end table out of foam board and linen. My friends used to come in my room and say (wow, your room is cool and it totally looks like a room that you would have). Radiohead posters adorned my walls highlighted by strung christmas lights and interesting tapestries on my bed. I've always found a way to make my home feel funky. I guess that's my style.
One of my friends wants me to redecorate a bedroom of her house and I have agreed to do so. So, I will be posting pictures of the process on here. It's not a major redecorate because she is renting so we can't paint or change lighting. It's only pictures, comforters, and stuff. I'm making her comforter and pillows. QUITE HAPPY!!
If you guys have any craft ideas you want to share, feel free to post in the comments.

I still have the outside of the house to do. I actually decorated by myself this year. I'm use to my husband's ELF-like musings and excitement to get me through the decorating season. Heck, he does most of the decorating himself. But, I'm happy to have gotten the tree put up and all the trimmings packed again for next year. My table looks very spring like. BTW...I did make the take cloth and the napkins. Those two bags hanging on the chair are my creation. Stay tuned for the tutorials. I've got to still take a tutorial on giving a tutorial...
Well, gotta jet...

After a day full of cookies, mac and cheese, baking, laughing, jovial hugs and kisses, crafting, and wonderful connectivity that would have verizon looking like a can company, I'm emotionally wiped out.
I hope all of you had a wonderful Christmas!
By the way, who else is jealous that Oklahoma didn't get any snow. All of my friend east of the Mississippi seemed to get snow but us! How strange since we were the very ones to get snowed in the previous year.
Oh well...God is a practical joker like that.
I think I'll invite him to my next birthday party!!

For those of you who actually read this thing, I bet your wondering what's going on, so I'll enlighten you.
I recently moved for the third time this year (military family) and started school in Tulsa. I originally started college almost 10 years ago. I'm just now getting around to finishing. Strangely enough, I'm not majoring in anything like art (which I would rather be majoring in). I majoring in the same thing I started college in just so that I can get finished.
Some of you may not know this, but I'm in the military. In fact, me and my husband are both in the military and one point were both active. Now that he's the only one active, I'm spending a lot of time working towards getting more rank which requires more education (even in the military).
So I've been doing that, managing a household virtually by myself, ROTC, National Guard, two kids, and everything else that falls in place with it.
I'm exhuasted @-) (see that...that's my crazy head).
I've spent this time off from school trying to make my craft better. I found out that he reason why I had been having issues with my sewing wasn't because of me but because of my sewing machine.
The sewing machine I have now is a Brother LS2000.
*just a little word to the wise*
Here's the machine I want (right along with my serger) Model 66:
Hope this saves you guys some troubles. If you want plastic parts, buy a Singer or Brother. If you want metal parts and more replacement parts, go Bernina.
