I prefer things I can make in a weekend, an afternoon or evening. Often projects that are a series of days or weeks can keep me interested, as long as I can feel accomplished and challenged after each step. I particularly like re-using old things in new ways, especially reclaimed wood.
I’m not focused on perfection and I like to create and make simply for the enjoyment of the creative process. If I make something functional then that’s a win! If I make something that doesn’t turn out, I usually have a good laugh and I learned how NOT to do it the next time.
I am blogging simply as an outlet to post my projects. I live in Seattle, with my husband Ward, and our 5 kids and I am a co-0wner of a Corporate Event Production company.
