ReVamp and ReNew

It’s been a while since posting and blogging.

Most of that is due to my memorial post of a dear friend that passed away last May. She left me her entire bead collection and, although I did not post here, I did make up A LOT of her items. She had 9 rubbermaid tubs of beads to create beaded angels. I made up over 500 of them. Beaded Angels were EVERYWHERE and we gave away A LOT of Guardian Angels over the last 6 months to people who themselves in their everyday lives are Angels themselves.

Once taking a side path to beading, sewing, embroidery and other crafts stepped to the side. And with a need to do some other chores, I diverted my creative talents to baking.

With all this diversity, I suppose the name CURIOSITIES is a good one since it encompasses all aspects of creative goodness.  I feel it is now time to step back into the documenting/sharing blog world with whatever diverse creativity is happening as it happens. I birthed this site out of the love of embroidery, so if you’ve come on board because of embroidery, I hope you can hold on through the baking, sewing, painting, and other artsy crafty things I will now build here as well. Eventually, I know posts will circle back to touch on embroidery and it’s sister crafts.

Maybe you are like me and dabble and indulge in many creative avenues. If that is the case, I’m sure you’ll enjoy the many CURIOSITIES that will appear here and the stories that will accompany them!  🙂

Enjoy the changes! Let’s embark on some new adventures together!

Your life needs fun. Go ahead, have some fun! –
