JANUARY 2013 – IMPORTANT NEWS – I HAVE LAUNCED A NEW BLOG! It is attached to my website and you can find it at www.GeminiRedCreations.com/blog
I’m just a clumsy girl who likes to play with scissors, hot glue and sharp pins and needles. It’s a dangerous combination, but so far so good.
I learned how to sew when I was about 7 years old when my grandmother helped me make a skirt and top to wear for Valentine’s Day. A few years later she helped me sew little dresses to wear to my roller skating lessons. In later years I started cross stitching and made several pieces over the course of my middle school and high school years. I remember one very difficult piece that I finished in a couple of days while babysitting. I have no idea what happened to that – it was a teddy bear clown. I have woven baskets (I wish I still had them all – at least I have 1 of them), I’ve made gifts for friends and family, I’ve attempted both crocheting and knitting without success, but I plan to try again some day, and I’ve made all kinds of other things along the way. I have always been the type to see something and think “I can make that” instead of buy it. More than once, however, I would have been better off buying it because I’m sure I didn’t end up saving any money. Recently I’ve been making things for friends – I made felt fortune cookies as a gift, felt heart “people” magnets for my friend’s daughter to exchange on Valentine’s Day at school, and other fun stuff.
I have items posted on my Etsy page for sale and I’m trying really hard to drum up more business. I have a lot of work to do on taking better pictures so they all look professional and attractive, and I will get there.
Please feel free to check out my Facebook page for pictures of what I’ve been working on over the past year.
This is a picture of me and a headband I designed and made from zipper by the yard.
