I started quilting in November 2012 but have a love for a variety of arts and cooking/baking activities. After running out of room on Facebook, I needed a new outlet to express my creativity, so here is my blog!! I wanted a place to share ideas, discuss designs and show the final creations. I was hoping to find and be part of a bigger community of people with similar interests, which I have. Most of the items I make are usually created to use around our house or specifically for my son or for gifts I am making for friends. I have diverse creative avenues – from sewing/quilting, baking/cooking, gardening, and then painting/drawing.
While looking for a name for my blog, I thought of Jack/Jill of all trades, master of none seemed appropriate (based on my varied interests) but they were taken. “Factotum of Arts” however, with similar meaning was available.
I am a proud kiwi (ie. was born in Auckland, New Zealand), who decided to travel round the world. I have currently settled in North Carolina, USA with my husband and 9-year-old son. I think my friends would describe me as a over-achiever who has too much energy :-).
Anyway, enough rambling about me ;-), I hope you enjoy my journey; all followers, commenters, likers are very welcome and I can’t wait to see who will come (sounds a little “Field of dreams doesn’t it 🙂 )
