My original intention for starting Miss Alison Regrets was to have a place where I could talk about craft. Making things is an intrinsic part of my identity – it really is craft or die for me. I am one of those lucky people who grew up in a creative household – surrounded by smart, creative and resourceful women who re-used or made for themselves. Well, woman. Groovie Mommie has been re-upholstering, re-painting, re-using and sewing for as long as I can remember. There isn’t anything my mother can’t do – although she will tell you otherwise. The values I have today are grounded in the home my mother worked to make for my sister and I. And I’m extremely grateful.
So to celebrate Creative Women, I am having a give away. Tell me about who inspires or has shaped you and Friday 13th (eek) I will be picking two names at random and giving away one (each) of my tie pins. I’m also in the midst of a fabric clean out, so you may well get a fold or two of fabric!
