Hello all! My name is Summer and I am a mother and stepmother to two wonderful kids. I am also happily married to the man of my dreams. My stepson is 5 and is in kindergarten and my daughter is 9 months old. I am a stay at home mom so those hour long breaks I get throughout the day when my daughter is napping and when my stepson is at school I have nothing to do! (Unless the house is dirty. :p) that's why I joined this group. I have had a big interest in crafting for quite a few years now so I am excited to see what everyone is working on and share what I am doing as well. :)

I really enjoy most crafts but sewing has definitely interested me the most. The only problem with that is that I don't have a sewing machine and I don't know how to sew, lol.

Depending on your budget, there are some very affordable sewing machines out there :) If you can't buy a new machine, you can check out craigslist or even freecycle! I've seen tons of older sewing machines at thrift stores and antique shops :)

Hand sewing, while more time consuming, is also something you could look into!

I'm really hoping that my husband will surprise me with one for Christmas. I have been dropping hints! ;) I have done a little bit of hand sewing in middle school but that was years ago. I never thought of using what I learned though.

I mostly do little things with the kids to keep them entertained. I plan on decorating my daughter's rooms soon though and I have found a lot of DIY's that I want to try out. I love painting. I was really into it in highschool and I hae thought about picking it up again but everytime I go to the store I never remember ot pick up any supplies for it. lol. :P I was also thinking about giving jewlery making a try.
