I have been into arts and crafts since I known about myself. All my life have been creating something. Drawing, painting, DIY anything you can imagine, worked the sculpture and pottery as well. Have to admit I am not good in photography (as you will se from the photos I’ll take and place here :), don’t know how to knit well and sew. But nothing can stop me making and creating something!
My life took me other direction. For many years worked in finances, as I like to call it “suits people”. That gave me opportunity to travel around the world, but did not satisfied my inner me. Few years ago when that kind of life of high speed and exhauster tempo started to influence my health, I left it and turned to my beloved roots of arts and crafts again.
I like to create, like to help. I like making others happy. Seeing smile on other people’s faces is what brings joy and happiness into my life and gives me energy to continue in what I do.
With amigurumi I started at the beginning of 2013. Discovered it by accident. Was working for a chameleon doll for one of nieces. That is how all this started. With one tiny chameleon! My grandmothers tought me crocheting when I was eight or nine years old, so basics (and more) I had to start on my amigurumi creations.
Just love making amigurumi. To me it feels as putting together painting (the color), sculpture (creating the shape), crafting (crocheting itself), so it fills me completely and makes me very, very happy. Final satisfaction is seeing wide smile on children’s faces having in hands one of my creations. That is priceless!
That is why I started this blog. To share my passion about amigurumi and other arts and crafts I like and do. To find out what other artists and crafters are doing. To teach others with this little that I know, and to learn as much as I can from all of you there that are wiling to share the knowledge.
Hope you will enjoy this journey in blog running with me. Looking forward to hear all your comments, bad or good. Hope you will learn something from me, enjoy in what I share and find something to share back with me and the followers.
