I was given these little needlepoint kits when I was 8, and that was the same year I was taught to make ornaments out of plastic canvas. My grandma taught me how to crochet when I was 10. I self-taught myself to knit when I was 25 and have done other things such as illumination and calligraphy. I got fascinated by Japanese felt food replicas and started making them about three years ago. I started doing papercrafting about two months ago when I saw cards made with SU stamps on Pinterest and wanted to try making my own. I love papercrafting. I've always adored being around paper and ink, but mainly channeled that love into writing. It wasn't a huge leap at all to start to make cards and other items with paper.
My mom is impressed with the amount of crafting I do, saying that I inherited that bug from my grandmother. Mama also does crafts, but nowhere near the amount I do.
