It All Started With Her

Hello My Lovelies,

So in this blog you'll get to know a little about P.S. You're Lovely, a little about me, and hopefully you'll allow me to learn from you as well by leaving comments!

It all started with mommy! My mom has been into art and crafts long before I was even a twinkle in her eyes. She always made sure that my sister and I had an appreciation for art. We didn't have to understand or even like it but we had to APPRECIATE and ACCEPT that it was art.

I moved to Houston for college back in 2004 and I've always been a little crafty but never enough to want to keep the project up. I've learned how to scrapbook, do altered books (super cool but they take more time than a scrapbook if your mind loves everything like me), paint (a little), use fabric as wallpaper (you should see my bedroom), and finally one visit she taught me about JEWELRY!

I have to admit I have always given my mom a hard time about ALL the crafts that take over her home but I can't thank her enough for all she's taught me.

Ok so back to the story. One visit she was on a jewelry kick and I was totally into it since I'm such a girlie girl. We strung a couple of necklaces and played around with the different techniques. All I have to say is when we decide to learn how to knot pearls at 12am it was not our smartest idea and I'm still not the largest fan but I have an APPRECIATION for those that can do it.

By the time I headed back to Houston I had finished a knotted 3 strand pearl necklace that I was so proud of. My mom starting supplying me with the tools for my new craft like she always had but it was about 2 years before I visited it again. I thought I had found a nice little hobby but before I knew it I had people asking me when I was going to make them one or do something more with it.

Long story short...P.S. You're Lovely was my final destination and I can't say thank you enough to my wonderful mommy for being a Jack of all trades.

Crafters: Where did you inspiration start?

Everyone: What is the coolest thing you learned from your parents?

Can't wait to hear from you!

P.S. You're Lovely
