My new world!

Hello everyone! I'm Jennifer. Welcome to my world!

Up until a year ago, I led a completely blog-free life. I was a middle-school French teacher with a great husband and a great hobby (sewing). I started a new life, though, when we adopted our beautiful daughter from Vietnam. I quit my job to stay home with her and I decided to turn my great hobby into a lifestyle -- I opened my Etsy shop to sell my handmade bags, purses, and baby items. I was suddenly immersed in the crafting world and the words "blog", "twitter", "flickr", "facebook" all became part of my everyday conversations (much to the surprise of my husband who USED to be the techie of the family!). I now run my computer all day long so I can learn all I can from the growing craft world. I read my favorite (long list of) blogs every day, and I have now decided to take the next step and create one of my own. I hope you enjoy taking a little peek into my crafty little world!
