I'm Heidi and this is my very first blog post. I have been into art my whole life. I started with off with traditional forms of art like drawing and painting. But over the years I experimented with different things like photography and candle making and now I call myself more of a crafter than an artist, though the terms are probably interchangeable.
How all the Hubbub got started:
Last holiday season I was short on cash, but I needed to get presents for my family. So I thought I would make them. My mom always told me how handmade gifts were more special than store-bought goods, so I decided to roll with that thought. I started a month in advance and made my whole family gifts. The reactions I got were totally worth all the hard work. Everybody loved their gifts. They said I should make a business out of it, and I thought "yeah right". But then I thought about how fulfilling it was to create really unique items and how awesome the reactions were. So I picked crafting up as past time... who am i kidding it was and is an all-consuming obsession. At the time I was pregnant with my daughter Rocky and I was unsure how I was going to be able to go to work and raise a kid. Naturally crafting came up as a perfect-fit option. I could be doing what I love and stay at home with my daughter Raquel (we call her Rocky for short). So the crafting world is where I decided to build my home. I would like to take my readers along for the ride. So sit back and see what unfolds.
