New Beginnings

I've been tossing the idea of starting my own business (making & selling crafty items) around in my head for a couple of years now, and I figured the start of this new year (2012!) was a good time to stop just thinking about the idea, and instead--get the ball rolling!

For those of you who might stumble across this blog, without knowing me personally--I'll give you a quick bio. :)

My name is Anne, and I am the youngest old person most people have ever met. :) I'm 22 years old, but most people guess I'm older than that when we first met, and once they know me better--know that I must be an old lady stuck in this younger body.

 My friends at work helped me come up with this list of reasons that brought us to that conclusion:
  •  I love cats...and have three of them. (Shadrach, Meshach & Abby )
  • I wear a lot of sweaters (Cute, modern, looking ones--but sweaters none the less)
  • I love wearing pearls. (Earrings & necklaces, mostly)
  • I pay my bills the "old fashioned" way with a check and a postage stamp--rather than "e-pay".
  • I love doing crafty things like quilting, sewing, scrapbooking, etc...
  • I got a traffic ticket once for driving too slowly...
I'm sure that list will only grow longer as I actually get older, but for now, that's all we have. :)

And now back to my bio...I got married 3 1/2 years ago to my "highschool sweetheart", Mikhal. (Pronounced: Michael)
We don't have any kids yet, but do plan on having a family someday in the coming years. That's actually one of my motivations for wanting to start a business. When we do decide to start having kids, I plan on retiring from my current job to take up the call of "Stay at Home Mom", and while I know I will certainly be busy--I'd still like to have something to work on in my down time that is fun, and that can help contribute to our finances.

Other than that, there's plenty to know about me--but not enough time in the day to write it all out! I'm sure it'll come out on it's own during the coming blog posts. :)

Oh, one thing I should mention is why I named my blog what I did. Mikhal and I recently moved into a rental house with his sister, M & her husband, A. (We call it "MAMA's house for short.) In this new big glorious combined house of ours, there is a beautifull bright green room that M & I called dibs on for a craft space! I was inspired the moment I walked in, and knew that I'd be able to create beautiful things in there. This blog will be used to help document those things. Pictures, Notes, Tips, Tutorials, etc... as well as my progress toward my bigger goal of owning & running my own business!

Thanks for reading, and I hope you're able to stick around and see where this takes me! :)
