Wednesday, May 4, 2011 goes from a dream to a reality

About a month and a half ago I was on a plane to Fresno from Seattle, I had just finished 7 days in beautiful Washington for the National Art Educators Association Convention and was EXHAUSTED!! I am not the type to ever fall asleep during a flight so my mind was racing.  I cranked up some Bob Marley on my IPhone and decided to jot a few things down in my journal.  I started writing down different goals that I wanted to set for myself and things I had always wanted to do but never had the time to do  but was to lazy to start :)

One of the goals was to start a craft blog.  You see, I am a crafter to the core, ( I have over 200 craft blogs bookmarked on my phone... I am kind of obsessed)  it's what makes me HAPPY.

I began to doodle and had a cool idea for a logo
(Please stop laughing at the fact that I can't draw)

The next day at work I talked to my friend Alexa A.K.A Swell Designer
(check out her amazing blog) and showed her what I had some up with.  She said, "Let me see what I can do for you".  That evening I received an email with my AMAZING logo!! I LOVED it!

It's SO great to see your ideas come to life.... it warms my heart!! I am slowly crossing other things off of my "Goal list" and can't wait to share with all of you!! IF YOU have something that you have been putting off, all you have to do is take the 1st step! You never know unless you try. 

Dreams DO come true!!

Looking forward to Helping you create projects that are to DIY for!
