Hello all! I'm Allie!
I'm a born and raised Texan, living in the Dallas/Fort Worth Area.
I am a wife, mother, nurse, photographer, and avid craft addict.
I love, love, love crafting! As if you couldn't tell from my blog, lol.
I have a wonderful husband who gave up his garage and gave it to me for a craft room. There, I am free to craft, sew, store and organize the stuff I sell on ebay and etsy!
For vacations and extra spending money I sell on etsy and ebay.
I sell handmade knitted and crocheted
items for newborn photography props.
I also sell my knitted items as
well as unique other finds.
I have two kiddos ages 8 and 10. I was blessed with a boy and a girl, and boy are they different.
I love them to death though, despite them not always letting me craft (pout).
They inspire me to think outside the box and I end up doing a lot of crafts just for them. You can find them all over my blog (the kid crafts that is).
I have to say that my Step Mom and Grandma had the biggest impact on me when it comes to how I ended up with my creativity. Although, I am also left handed and I've been told that has a huge part in it. Hmm... who knows.
They always showed me how to do things, and gave me materials to let my mind go wild. When I took home-economics I really found my niche. Crafting! My home-ec teacher taught me how to sew, and crochet, and now I even knit (even though its on a loom).
I also have my husband to thank, he is such a DIY'r. I mean there is not a whole lot the man won't tackle. And if he has doubts, and its something I want bad enough, enough pouting (and encouragement) and he'll usually cave.
I also love singing, dancing, cuddling with my husband watching a good movie, garage sales, estate sales, thrift stores, oh ya and Pinterest.
