Back in March of 2015, I did a month-long series called Make Madness. Recently I’ve been itching to bring my blog back to life and I thought this would be great way to make that happen. I will also be posting to Instagram every day with my creations. You can check out my Instagram feed here.
As long as I can remember, I’ve loved to make things. My earliest memory was when I was 4 and my mom bought me a set of sewing cards. I loved drawing and coloring – getting the big box of Crayola Crayons for Christmas is still a vivid memory. I remember making paper projects with rubber cement. I also remember my youngest brother using the rubber cement to lacquer one of my dolls.
I love all manner of craft: knitting, crochet, paper crafts, sewing, cross stitch, and general crafts. My mom taught me to crochet when I was 7. One of my favorite childhood memories and one of the clearest, happiest ones I have is when she took me to the local wool shop to buy a skein of yarn for my first crochet blanket. I still remember the basket holding all the yummy, colorful skeins of yarn. It was a simple granny square worked from the center and ended up fitting a queen-sized bed. As I finished each skein, we would head to the wool shop and buy the next color. This project began my life long love of yarn and all the crafts associated with it.
The blog series during the month of March will be called “Make Madness”. This is my version of March Madness and I give my husband all the credit for coming up with the name.
My goal is to make something every day during the month of March. The crafts will be a combination of projects that have been on my todo list for ages and others that have recently piqued my interest. Some will be ones I’ve never tried others will be a different spin on a craft I’m familiar with.
I have no plans for any specific giveaways, but I do encourage you to follow along because in my ‘making madness’ I might experience some ‘giveaway madness’ every now and then.
As I venture back into the blog world, I’m going to be trying out different ways to present my posts. Some may be traditional posts and yet others may be video podcasts. For the month of March, I will do daily posts, but after that I’ll probably switch to a weekly format.
I’m excited to be back after a long hiatus and look forward to reconnecting with everyone. If this is your first time visiting, I encourage you to have a look around at my catalog of previous posts. And if you’re a returning visitor, THANK YOU for coming back.
Would any of your ‘madness’ projects be for us?
