I am an Interior Designer by trade and LOVE all kinds of crafts! I don't have as much time to do them as I would like, but I take what I can get. After loosing all of my tools in a divorce, in order to do anything, I had to buy all new tools (oh darn!). So after taking my time and making a purchase here and there, I am ready to begin. I am just starting a new hobby - making picture frames. I do the art and the matting, so why not complete the package and make the frames?

I haven't made any yet, but just bought a bunch of new tools. Before tackling a real frame, I want to get to know my new tools and the basic skills needed to make frames. So I am starting with some basic routing, 45 degree cuts and some basic joining skills. I have done this stuff in the past, like 25 years ago past! So I just want to wake up the skills again before jumping into something important.

I am also finishing up my Masters in Environmental Policy Management (March of 2014) after graduating with my BFA in Interior Design in 2011. I am very happily married to a wonderful man who also loves tools! I am a grandma of a 4 year old grandson and a 5 month old grand daughter. I work full-time and go to school full-time.

So what shall I make first?????
