Happiness is...creating every day!

Hi Crafty Friends!

Welcome to another round in the Designer Craft Connection blog hop.  Our theme for June is "Happiness is...", so you'll get to see what makes us happy. 

For me, just the act of creating and designing a project makes me happy.  I love taking an idea and trying to bring it into physical existance.  It's absorbing and calls on all my skills and imagination to come up with something new and original.  It's the best job I've ever had!

In addition to the creative process, I love to share and, hopefully, inspire, others to be creative.  There are a host of people who have inspired and encouraged me along the way, and I want to pass that along.  And, I want to thank all those who are a continuing inspiration to me, whether it's family, my friends who get together to knit and chat, the kids who craft in my kitchen, or this amazing group of designers.

Here's a romantic, vintage-style necklace that I designed.  You can find the instructions in the summer issue of Crafts n' things.

Happy Crafting!  (Because crafting does make you happy!)
