Hi there! My name is Elaine and I appreciate you taking the time to visit my blog. You have made it to the page where you would like to get to know a little bit more about me, so I thought I'd be unconventional and tell you about the real me.
I love to get my hair done and my hair color has never remained a constant. My genetics have dealt me a hand of early grays and its a challenge to find the right combination to conceal it for as long as possible! If I could be a hermit, I would. Things like work and kids activities draw me out of the house, but I'm a home-body and can have anything I need delivered to the house 😊 . Everyone who knows me well would agree that I am an old soul. I married young, have "old-school" values and until now, have been out of the social networking scene. In a management training, I took a generational test and turns out I relate most to baby-boomers even though my birth year falls under gen-X. If I were to admit that I missed my calling in life, it would have been to go into the arts or dance. Ask any family member and I basically dance non-stop behind closed doors. Lastly, I'm a foodie. I have a major sweet tooth, can be found grazing in the kitchen and always look forward to the next meal!
So why did I start a blog? Crafting is a passion and I wanted to share my love of it. We all get caught up in the day to day of life and need to carve out that time for what makes us happy. I'm a wife, a mom to 2 girls and 3 dogs, and have a career in corporate finance. The term work-life balance is so widespread in Corporate America and I think we also need to incorporate Craft-Life Balance into the mix as well. I hope you continue to visit my blog, be inspired and find some balance in your life to incorporate some crafting! Enjoy!
