I'm doing a fun linky carnival this week called the Chic Click Carnival over at Today's Creative Blog. It's a way to get to know other bloggers and share your site with others. So I want to share a little bit about me to join in the fun!
- When I started Funky PolkaDot Giraffe over 2 years ago I was making burp cloths and diaper/wipe caddies. I only had a little boy and didn't have much need for bows or clips. I chose the name Funky PolkaDot Giraffe because my son ADORES giraffes and I love polka dots and we're a little funky, so it fit us perfectly. When I found out in June of 2008 that I was having a girl my wheels started turning and I started making bows. I started with korkers and it has evolved from there. I owe most everything I know about bow making to my friend Ashby - she's a great teacher and tutorial writer. From there is has snowballed and I started making headbands, princess clips, seasonal ribbon art creations (like my Turkey, Snowman, and Chocolate Bunny). It's been a fun and exciting journey into the creative - there are so many things I want to make, but only so many hours in the day!
- I've been married to the love of my life for almost 9 years and it's gone by in the blink of an eye. I used to be a second grade teacher and I believe second grade is the magic year! I love to read, craft, play with my kids and hang out with my fab friends.
- My favorite post is A.M.A.Z.I.N.G. because I admire NieNie and her strength and courage - even though the post has nothing to do with my crafting.
- My favorite Peep I found through the widget is KrashingMotions. Her photog skills are amazing!
P.S. Don't forget the GIVEAWAYS I have going on!
