The family at a recent wedding.

Hi I am Regan.  I started blogging to be able to share my creations with friends and family that are far away.  It also gives me a space to keep track of all the projects that I sew, knit, repurpose, dye, glue, and whatever else I come up with.  A little more about me….

I have worked outside the home and now taking a break to raise my family.   I have coached volleyball since college and most recently was a personal trainer.  As I look back over my years prior to mommyhood they are laden with teaching, coaching and caregiving so really I considered myself highly qualified for this job.  Well I think we all find out along the way that all the qualifications in the world don’t prepare anyone for mommyhood.  It is a fascinating and intriguing journey that I am only a few short months into but loving every moment.

My desire to craft exploded during the first few months after my daughter was born.  Prior to delivery I was cooking, canning, baking and vacuum sealing everything (more on this later).  I really believe the post-partum hormones brought out a creative desire that yearns to take over every spare moment of my day.  As I sit in my craft room and hear that whimper over the monitor I know that any minute my time will no longer be mine but selfishly wanting just five more minutes to sew one more seam or hot glue another thingy.

I hope you enjoy and please feel free to leave a comment.
