    Just Found you through Selena at Apron Thrift Girl. Just finished a lively apron out of Shedda(100% cotton with lovely patterns in it) and Ghanaian batik pockets that I’ll be posting soon.
    Happy to swap creations with you!


  2. AnnaO says:

    I will be back to posting on my blog eventually. :)

  3. Lovely blog you’ve got here! I agree with you that blogging can turn an everyday task into an enjoyable project, I use mine the same way. I’ve added you to my blogroll, hope it helps others to discover you.

    I love creating monthly writing challenges for English learners on My English Club! The writers who accept the challenge use their own blog to post their assignments. They then add a link to their post from my original one so that everyone in the club can find it. We have so much fun together. This month I challenged our English learners to write stories based on recent photos that they uploaded for a photo contest. I can’t wait to see what they come up with.

    Thanks for asking!

    I love to create jewelry, greeting cards, dishcloths, scarves, mittens, hats, bags, home decor, hand bound books, blog posts…

    Maybe I should have just stopped at: I love to create.

    I love to create candles. I also love to blog. I have two of them. Weird that I rarely blog on my candle site but rather my personal one adventureswithanastasia@blogspot.com.

    I am a writer and a wife and mother. Right now, I’m enjoying working with my freelance writing business, “creating” value for my clients.

    I also love to cook and am a newbie gardener. I recently joined a CSA and am getting lots of wonderful, fresh, organic produce to play with in the kitchen. I haven’t made anything to exotic yet, but plan on making a delicious chicken stew tomorrow using fresh tomatoes, squash, garlic, okra, and green beans.

    I like to sketch and paint. Oh, and collect (cough hoard cough) sketchbooks (:

  9. I just love being creative. Design. Drawing. Painting. Cooking. Baking. Traveling. Gardening. Sewing. Writing. Generally, being a silly person who loves animals and creates possibly to give into my unused nurturing instincts ;)

    I love to sew. I love working with vintage fabrics. But probably more than that I love embroidery. I don’t do any to sell because my needlework is slop – but I adore it and find it very relaxing.

  11. Sarah says:

    I love beautiful paper, and making something that is personal to the buyer. I have a wee Etsy shop, but most of what I do is custom so I’d rather sell in person so we can chat and explain and share ideas for the final product! (www.westoftwodesigns.etsy.com). I also create by writing at Canadian+Handmade, sharing the fab work of other talented Canadians!

    Happy to have finally had a chance to check out your blog tonight, Ana! I’ll be back!

  12. Whitney says:

    I love to craft words into ideas and poems and stories and more, I love to create music with my voice and guitar and harmonica, I love to create memories with storytelling and singalongs and laughter and play.

  13. Hi Ana,

    As you know, I have an affinity for vintage images and like you, I wonder about not only the creators of the images but also about the time and culture they came from. I really understand what you said about holding an old item in your hands and wondering about all the others who have held it and cherished it. I thought I was the only one curious about that aspect of vintage!


  14. Beth says:

    If it involves a needle and thread or yarn and needles, I do it. Just about the only thing I don’t do is tatting and crochet. I’ve been at this since grade school. When my daughter was a baby I smocked and did heirloom sewing. The only time I do that today is for presents.

    I found your site through a link on my site, myknittingcircle.com. I’m glad it linked.

  15. Hi! I’m from brazil and i loved your blog! Is so lovely and i’m so happy to find this blog! Congratulations for this. Kisses. Anne Luka. Blog Coisas de Anne… (Sorry for the mistakes of grammar, my English isn’t perfect yet!)

  16. Eithne says:

    Hello, I love your blog. Thought it very uplifting and a great energy vibe! I love anything that’s creative – card making, any paper craft, making journals/photo albums, knitting, crochet, gardening, painting, singing, playing music, photography, graphic design…. if it involves colours and creation I LOvE it! I’m only new to blogging but have a blog set up at http://babysnapz.blogspot.com/ which is also a stepping stone hopefully, to a shop soon…. 8-D
    Keep up the great blog!
    With love from Ireland

  17. Rita says:

    I love to live, to love, to create, to teach, but most of all to learn and try out something new!!!

  18. 'Joyce' says:

    Oh how lovely, thank you for asking. I do love to do lots of things, at the moment sewing and crochet takes up my ‘spare’ time. Then there is cardmaking, and beading as well as cross stitch. I just love your drawings, so refreshing and fun. Looking forward to getting to know you. Bless.

  19. nantawan says:

    I like paper craft, stamping technic. I usually make card and gift tags and sometime bake cookies. Let’s visit my english blog at http://chic-ideas.blogspot.com/
    Nice to meet you.

  20. There’s way too much out there to be silly and limit oneself :) I really enjoy getting to learn new things, finding new ways to express creativity and just plain learn. I, within legality and general morals, believe in trying new things because “you never know until you try.” So i’ll give any craft a go just to see if it catches on. And I hate wasting things, so i often enjoy upcycling and making meals out of “nothing”. Hence multiple adventures, misadventures and an enjoyable life unlike any others. Now i am just learning to write about it too :)

  21. I run an organization for kids with special needs in India (www.latikaroy.org). My favorite part of my job is creating the annual calendar (http://latikaroy.org/aboutUs/about_calendar/about_calendar.html) we produce to raise funds. Each year it has a different theme and the photographs and quotes all go along together to build a visual story which we hope will change attitudes about disability.

    I also love to bake, write and take photographs. I’m enjoying your blog enormously.

  22. leah says:

    I love to paint, draw, doodle, make mixed-media art, and blog. And I’m learning to sew!

  23. Liberty says:

    Thank you for asking. I knit, spin, dye, weave (on occasion), soap, brew, and bake. And for my next trick I really want to try pottery.

  24. I like to make books !

  25. Catriona says:

    Lovely to be asked by yourself! I love the light and clarity of your blog.

    I make a blog about where I live in rural Ireland. I take all my own photos and just blog about myself, my neighbours and the flora and fauna of the area. I also paint, cook, garden and sew! I enjoy life and I work in the community for a living.
    Is it OK to say that my blog is http://www.foxglovelane.blogspot.com

  26. This is cool. :)

    Thumbs up to you, Ana, for originality and creating community by focusing not only on your originality but ours too ! :)

    Ever seen those about.me pages ? I’ve got one and I think it sums me up well:


  27. I love to make cards but I love even more to take clothes and transform them into something new. :)

  28. Ana,
    I love your site and easy style. So glad I found you…
    I love to create and will try my hand at making anything – sewing, cooking, gardening, writing, building, etc. My kitchen even has a seam ripper – just in case!

  29. Celeste says:

    Just having lunch and stumbled on your site while visiting Somerset Sew, I believe. Enjoyed your website and the few blogs I read. Have a great day!

    I love to create all natural Aromatherapy Body Care Products. I was so tired of getting out of the shower and my skin being so itchy from the various soaps and then to put on moisturizers, only to have dry skin 20 minutes later. I thought it’s time to make something that really is natural and beneficial to our bodies .. and The Gardens Of Healing was born. I’m new to the business just over a year now, but loving every minute and loving the positive feedback I receive from clients who are now using my products. It’s so great to know that in a small way, you have truly helped another.

  31. Lori says:

    Good afternoon
    I found your blog while looking for places to sell my handmade cards. I make cards using scrapbooking techniques.

  32. Nan says:

    Thank you for your creative interest and for sharing your ideas. My interest vary with my moods. Most days knitting is what keeps my hands busy, or crocheting, or basket weaving, although it has been a while since I made a basket. At the end of a busy day of housework, I reward myself by doing needlework. My daughter thinks that I should write a blog, don’t have the time, too much knitting or crocheting to do, and reading the latest knitting/crochet mags. or books is too much fun. Retirement has been a blast so far, every day is Saturday, and my husband tells me not to do the housework, just enjoy your days and do as you please. What a guy! We have been married 45 years. He loves to show off my projects and encourages my creative side.

  33. Shelia says:

    I do machine embroidery. Thanks for what you do.

  34. valentina says:

    I’m sixty-two years
    I am a teacher of drawing and painting in the past, but now engaged in private teaching, and creativity

  35. Sewing, illustration, water colour and baking (yes the last is a craft too, although some might say its more of ‘a science’..).

  36. Lynn says:

    I knit and have only been doing so about 2-3 years. I love finding inspiration from others. I am so happy I stumbled upon your blog! Inspiration galore!!!

  37. Julie says:

    I just came across you blog via an old Gail Vaz-Oxlade blog post. Awesome! I love your blog! I’m expecting baby #3 in October. I’m very busy with a just-turned-3 and an almost 14 month old, so not much time to create. New fan!! Thanks! And I’m going to steal your method for the veggie stock! I’ve been meaning to do that for ages!

    Ciao! Sono americana e abito a Roma. Faccio gioielli.

    Hi! I’m American and I live in Rome. I make jewelry… Actually, I got away from it for quite a while and ended up doing a lot more than that. Since the beginning of this year I have been living in Italy (from Florida) where I studied jewelry design as a refresher along with Italian language and now I’m completely back in love with doing anything creative. I never want to stray again and am doing all I can to become a full-time artist while living in Rome where I get inspired walking down the streets and discovering something old or new in the Eternal City nearly every day.
