Hello World!

Hello readers in the expansive internet universe! My name is Allison and I am an avid crafter, collector, and designer. I just graduated from college this May with a degree in interior design, but I have considered myself a designer for most of my life! I was always creative, but I think it really started when I got a paperclip jewelry book for my (7th?) birthday.

It sounds pretty silly but there were some pretty awesome ideas in there that lead me to full-blown jewelry making! I moved on to wire crafting earrings and bangles and beading necklaces for myself and family members. I even got to take a class for it in high school where I got to use torches for soldering and glass bead making! It was pretty awesome aside from burning the crap out of my hand, I'm a bit of a klutz! When I went to college, I decided to pursue other crafties and hobbies as I felt I had learned all I could at the time for jewelry making. This blog will share all my new crafty discoveries, projects, and all kinds of goodies! I hope you will take the time to read, comment, and maybe even be just a little INSPIRED to start your own crafties! 

Was there ever a specific moment in time that lead you to a creative project or idea? I'd love to hear!
