Hi y'all! Well, I have a blog. Now what?
My reason for starting this whole thing is to document some of the creative work I've been doing for the past 6 months. January 2012 was a turning point for me. I was bored. At work, I had lost all interest in what I was doing and something had to give. It took half a year of that whole "what do I want to do" stuff to determine that I was creatively starving and needed an outlet from the day to day stress of my current work.
Oh, and I drank wine. Lots of it.
Which leads to wine corks. I can never throw one away so we had mounds of them that I've collected for years. I'm also a lazy organizer - things are behind closed doors so it looks pretty, but open a drawer, cupboard or pantry in my house and you'll find complete and utter chaos. I'm sure that's a metaphor or something, but I digress. xD When the mess starts spilling from the enclosed areas, it's cull time. I would be okay about getting rid of everything else (thank you, A&E Hoarders!) except those damn corks. I had seen lots of stuff made from corks that left me 'feh'.. until I saw a pin about wine cork ornaments on Pinterest. Bingo! Now, those looked like something fun to do! A few trips to the craft store later (I had nothing but corks and needed wire, beads, pliers, etc ) and I was hooked. Six months later, I have a cozy workroom and more beads and supplies than I know what to do with and having a ball making all kinds of fun things. Welcome to my blog and PLEASE leave comments if you feel inclined. I would love to hear from you. xoxo
