Welcome to creative therapy. Or maybe I should start this out by saying, hello.
Hello is a great way to start since it’s where I began this adventure. The first time I cut the word ‘HELLO’ on my Cricut I was hooked. Being a graphic designer by day, I decided a simple font or the cartridges that came with my Cricut machine, was not enough. So, I started designing my own and hardly used ready made items. As I get my blog up and running I hope to regularly post the downloadable SVG files so you can make the items I post with a few clicks. Later, I plan to have some you can buy also. Check out the SVG Store! today!
To set the story, I’m not a writer [so bear with me please] but I’m a creative mind with a craft room, sewing station, Cricut® owner, and I have shelves full of paint, brushes, scrapbooking items. Oh, and I am self-proclaimed DIY-er all rolled into my home office. I regularly use this office for my graphic design studio (since 1997) out of my home during the day. I share this with my 2 teenage kids and my adorable cat (watch for photo bombs by him often as he’s always trying to “help”).
My Pile of Notes
My pile of notes that started this blog, We Can Make That!, says I will focus on the DIY projects I enjoy doing all the time. My sister-in-law/friend and I are always sharing craft related items and saying, We Can Make That! So, the name was born. Items we love to share are chalk painting projects (BTW: Anne Sloan Paint ROCKS!!), garage-sale-finds turned treasures, and I’ll throw in some fast favorite recipes I make or am trying, items we can enhance by adding vinyl to them, scrapbooking and card making… to name a few blog post ideas.
Lately, I’ve added photography [my new found hobby] to my list of creative therapy. All of which I plan to share on here… plus whatever else comes to mind.
