How long have you been crafting? All of my life. I started out by sewing with my Grandmother and Great Aunts, learning to crochet, cross stitch, and embroider while I was a child. I designed and baked custom wedding cakes for almost 20 years. I paint murals, make mosaics, do woodworking- anything I can get my hands dirty doing I want to try! I love papercrafting because it is so limitless- there are so many mediums you can use and so many outlets with this art form.
