Strawberry Posts: The Introduction

Hi, guys!

So, if you haven’t read Wynn’s ‘Update’ post, you can do so here. It gives a quick explanation of who I am and why I’m here. This post will be a bit more in-depth about that.

So basically, My name is Alexa, or Lexi. I’m 23 years old, Studying IT in college and my blog was originally here. Simply put, due to the fact that I became really busy with school, work and other life obligations, I couldn’t continue the blog and eventually dropped it.

My love for Crochet -and crafting- didn’t fade, however. After my classes let out for the summer, I started to crochet again and even started a summer project. Wynn eventually talked me into blogging again, but I didn’t want to restart the blog. It’s too much work and (Fun fact about me), I have the attention span of a hamster. So I asked her if I could have a guest spot on her blog, she said Yes and here I am!

Five Facts about Myself:

1. I have two cats named Navi and GLaDOS

2. I’m a video game nerd and my favorite types of games are MMORPGs

3. Me and Wynn have been best friends for nearly ten years now.

4. I also have a Betta fish named Arcanine.

5. I’m a huge fan of BBC ‘Sherlock’ and pretty much anything to do with Sherlock Holmes.

I don’t really know how often I’ll post, but it’ll be at least once a week. It’ll often be update posts about my summer project that I’ve started and maybe a project or two that I did in between. I’d like to do a weekly thing, like ‘Pattern Roundup’ or something to that effect, but I’ll have to think on it.

I’ll definitely try to have my ‘Project Update’ posts out by Mondays. Any other posts I have, they’ll come as I write them. My posts will also be labeled ‘Strawberry Posts’, Just to separate Wynn’s posts from mine.

I believe that’s it. I look forward to talking to you guys again on Monday!

Happy Crafting!

‘Allo!

So, I’m a curious Crafter with endless ideas and slightly more limited motivation. But, I’m aiming to fix it by issuing myself a challenge to finish a project AT LEAST every two weeks. To give you an idea,…

  • I sew.
  • I crochet.
  • I bead weave.
  • I cross stitch
  • I embroider
  • Jewelry Design

And, for most of these, save for the sewing one, I can take them to work to push them forward. Why do I do, almost literally, everything? I have no idea. But I need to, and here’s where this comes in.

Quick background, since this IS the first post, I’m a lover of Photography [but as with most else, I’m under motivated] and I love animals. I’ve always been into Artsy sorts of things. I drew Anime for about 7 years, and still am NOT pleased with that or my progress. I’ve been a writer since I was seven, but you can guess what happens with that. I’m simply a creative mind that’s flagging and faltering terribly, and aiming to preserve that creative spark. :3

WHY?
The main idea behind this blog, is to not stop making things. Too often I start to do creatively oriented things, then get taken in by video games and such. So, I stop making things.  This is supposed to encourage me to not let my shop die, keep learning and just continue with my handy crafts. I want to get into making and designing my own clothes, and I figure this will make me learn. :3
