.Thank you gifts.

I went to Ocho Rios, Jamaica with some friends from work back in September, and to show my appreciation and gratitude for the invite and fun times I decided to make them a gift. My inspiration was one of the (many) pins that I've posted to my craft idea board on Pinterest. Since one of my colleagues adores Hello Kitty, I decided to use that motif for her coasters; I was ambivalent about the design to use for Steph's since I didn't know what her favorite color was, nor did I have any idea what type of characters she might like, so, I went with my gut and selected a vibrant style paper with random "feel good" words--good thing because she said, 'this is so me!' when I presented her gift. These coasters were my first DIY project, and I must say, they turned out quite well, and the ladies have really enjoyed them! Kudos to me! ; )

First post ever! Yippee!

So, here it is--my blog--and I'm super excited! Why am I so thrilled? Because I finally have a new vice; a means to share my expressions, my explorations, my experiences. . .(dig the alliteration? ; ). I'm coming into my own, fearing nothing, developing new skills, and discovering the me that I was meant to be. 

Now, I wouldn't call myself a hoarder, but I've always had these grandiose collections consisting of pens, stationary, watches, and perfume. My husband probably thinks I've gone madd crazy when he peers into our guest bedroom! I've amassed a sizable amount of knickknacks, gadgets, and other paraphernalia that I plan to reimagine/revamp/recreate/remix, whatever choice of wording you prefer. Currently, they're just lying on the bed and on the floor. My goal is to begin tackling the larger projects first; that is, I'm going to paint the walls, put up a craft table, and add some storage for my lovely array of things!

Additionally, over the past few months, I've developed several new. . .let's say. . .hobbies, no interests! I now have a SERIOUS fetish for earrings, nail polish, and vintage fashion. Follow me as I delve in and find my creative inner self.

I thought I'd start off "small" by posting some photos from my recent trip to Jamaica. Sooo, here they are. . .hope you enjoy!
