I recently lost my job and decided to reinvent myself. With time on my side and creativity, I never knew I had I gave it a go. I never used a jigsaw; chop saw, sander etc...but I was determined to learn, the more mistakes you make, the easier it gets!
I now go to craft shows to sell my crafts, and it makes me happy to know someone is enjoying my work. I get lots of inspiration from fellow artisans online, and although I may not have detailed instructions and measurements, I rarely measure, I hope to inspire someone with my crafts!
