About Me

I'm a crafty person and enjoy knitting and sewing. I've taught myself most of what I know. I've started sewing and actually crocheting at a young age with my granny. From there I've expanded to knitting and making Stick Owlies! I love to promote other artists and post random animal facts

New Ideas

Does anyone find it's hard to come up with new ideas?? How do some people gather ideas?

When I come up with an idea I write it down and than try to draw it out. I'm always looking for different fabrics, buttons and yarn to make Stick Owlie different and unique. I also read a lot online and gather craft magazines. Sometimes I still feel like some of my ideas are dead in the water. Knitting can be a slow process, which for some who want it done quickly can be boring. There is a lot of work that goes into knitting - the pattern, yarn, needles and time. Sewing it seems you get your project completed quicker. With knitting I'm happy to get a few rows completed! I still believe it's not how long the project takes you, but how your end product comes out. The smaller less complex project will complete a lot quicker in both the knitting world and sewing world.


  1. Sounds like you are into instant gratification...do you also like slot machines lol:-)

  2. I totally hit walls where I feel like my inspiration runs out.
    I will them browse around online and find things I love to get inspired by the colors, cut, style or textures of a garment.

  3. I've talked to a lot of different artists who suffer from "writer's block". I've never really been one of those people. Sometimes I find it's hard to sleep there are so many ideas rattling around in my head. I sometimes wish that I could divide myself up into clones to get everything done that I'd like to. Ha ha ha! That'll be the day!
