All About Me!

Hello and thank you for visiting my blog! As you probably know by now, my name is Kathleen and I love to craft and create beautiful things! Whether it be decorating for a birthday party or painting a Christmas ornament, if I am being crafty, I am happy!

So why did I start crafting? Well, many years ago I decided I needed a hobby. I was bored and wanted to try my hand at  something new. The next day,  I jumped into my car and went to the local craft store. Once I got there, I wandered aimlessly, not exactly sure what I was looking for. Then, out of the corner of my eye, I spotted a rack of decorative painting books. I love to paint, how hard could decorative painting actually be? Well, my friends, let’s just say practice makes perfect, and I practiced, A LOT! I have been painting for over fifteen years now and I love it! Of course, my love of painting led to paper crafting, which led to flower arranging, which led to decoupage projects. I could go on, but I’ll leave it at that for now.

I also love to plan and decorate birthday parties. If you think about it, crafting and party decorating go hand in hand. In both cases, you are creating something special. From a beautiful tablescape to simple balloons, the decorating ideas are endless!

Why a blog?

I decided to start a craft blog so that I could share things with you that I have learned throughout my “crafting journey.” From my favorite fast-drying glue to the best online stores to find inexpensive craft and party supplies, I hope to provide you with lots of valuable information, crafting tips and much, much more! So sit back, enjoy and once again, thank you for stopping by!

PS: I also love rescue dogs. So if you find an occasional post about one of my pups, don’t hold it against me!
