I’m Cara…a wife and mom of two. I started crafting many years ago when my children were young. Back then I created items to decorate my home…think painted candle sticks, flower pots, holiday decor…all that good stuff! As my children grew, I turned to scrapbooking. This quickly evolved into card-making, altered art, mixed media, jewelry making…you name it. I love trying new things.
As I tried various crafty techniques and supplies one thing was constant. My love of what I call “school supplies.” I was probably more excited about school supply lists than my kids. New pens, paper…what’s better than that?
It probably comes as no surprise that I think one of the best things in life is to put pen to paper and write. I really don’t care what you write…menus, lists, stories…whatever. Picking out a pen you love and writing something down is so satisfying.
It seems natural to me that along with all of this would come a love of planners. Filofax, Erin Condren, Hobonichis…I love them all!
My children are grown now…or so they tell me. I thought it was time for a bit of a change, time to focus a little more on what I really like doing. So I created this blog to share not only what I craft but also what I “collect” and use in my life. Expect to see cards, art journaling, mixed media, planners, pens (all kinds, including my newest addiction….fountain pens) and whatever else I decide to throw in here. There will be tutorials, reviews and sharing.
This blog, like me, is a work in progress so you may see changes from time to time. I welcome your kind feedback any time you want to leave it.
