After reading numerous blogs about other super creative, wonderful mommies out there – I got jealous. Then I thought, hmmmm, I could do it too!!! I am still jealous because there is alot of talented ladies out there but at least I have a blog. Maybe – just maybe I can inspire some other hidden creative mind to come into the sun. Probably not, but I can dream, right???
First off – a little about me. I am Joni. I have three – count ’em – three kiddos. One is 7, one is 6, and one is 14 mos. I sew. Alot. So much my husband has decided he has lost me to my sewing room. He is right. Shh- don’t tell him. I can sew just about anything with a pattern. I started almost three years ago when I went to Disneyworld. I wanted to make a pirate costume for myself. I started with a handheld sewing thing, not really a machine. It was kind of funny. One day I might post a picture – if I have one. I avoid cameras at all cost. In fact, if I ever get into a tragic accident and the news studio calls my husband to get a picture of me -they are going to get me in an evil queen costume. That is the last known picture of me – two years ago. Okay, maybe I am embellishing the truth a little. I think of the truth as a plain pattern that needs a little embellishment sometimes. I do it everyonce in a while – but I will always disclose an embellishment. Anyhoo – I digress. From the handheld sewing machine I moved to a sightly bigger machine. I think it cost me about $50. I quickly messed that one up and progressed to a $90 version. Then I found my dream machine (okay not really a “dream machine” more like a slighty nicer one with more than 10 stitches) on clearance for for $100 and have not looked at the other two in a while. I also bought another $50 machine for the day when I finally break the nicer one and have to send it to the shop. All in all, I have four sewing machines. One day I might get a really nice one. Then I will have five. Shh – don’t tell my husband that either. I hope he doesn’t stumble across this blog. He might be upset. However, I don’t think he goes searching for creative blogs from fun mommies on the internet so I might be safe.
I will be learning the world of blog publishing and will be changing things around – alot, until I get it just right. So don’t be alarmed if things look different.
