Do you ever just want a place where you can be your crafty self?
Welcome to my little bit of blogging paradise to where I get to tell you about me, and just me, where it is all about me, and no one can do anything about it! Muhahaha! Just kidding!
Okay with narcissism aside and in all seriousness though, Hi! I'm Susan! I am a Jane of all crafts and mistress of none. I dabble in everything from drawing, drafting, crochet (although just barely), cross stitch, cat herding, jewelry making, button pressing, and now paper crafting madness. And let me tell you, when I get into a craft I obsess over it, immersing myself in it and taking in all the information I can get my brain cells to absorb. These are all of the things that I believe make me an artist. I never have conformed to one medium but choose to express myself in all of them. So I guess I am a little greedy. ;) To me any type of art is therapy. It helps me relax, it gets me a little less frustrated, and it zones me out into my own little crafty world. And that's the way I like it.
That is why I created Flair Chase. If you think about it, what do we do every time we go into a craft store or look online at a crafting venue? We are attempting to chase down that perfect piece of flair. From paper to textiles, canvas to the walls in your house, we are always looking for the element that makes something special. But what if you have no idea where to start you may ask? Well I try to cover that too.
I remember getting into paper crafts, going to my local crafty stores, and staring for hours at just adhesives. It's a very overwhelming experience to get into. Then I found Close to my Heart! They have everything in one place to get you started from memory keeping to card making and so much more. Even for the most experienced people there is always something new. A new trend, pattern, or tool to drool over. The only thing you need to worry about is your own individual style and putting your own mark on the world. Don't worry, I am not here specifically to sell you things, I do use a lot of CTMH in my projects but sometimes I don't. I will list everything I possibly use, tell you the prices if I know it, where to find it, and give you as much information I can no matter where I get it from.
My style is in its testing phase. I am not sure what it is yet but hopefully it will emerge soon. I like almost everything, simple, cottage/beachy styles, shabby chic, clean lines and on the reverse side, messy, antique, layered, distressed, and vintage. You know that dirty with class look. :) I can find beauty in anything and the inspiration that comes with it. My only problem is where to start!
