Just Wanted to Introduce Myself!


My name is Nomie.  My real name is Naomi, but I honestly have never liked my name and have been called Nomie longer than I can remember so that's what I like to go with.  :o)

I'm 25 years old and I have a 5yr old daughter, a 2yr old son, and an almost 8mo old daughter.  They are my world.  I wouldn't trade them for anything.  Eventhough they give me a run for my sanity most of the time, I wouldn't have it any other way.  I'm married to my High School sweetheart, who I've known for 10 years.  We fight like cats and dogs, but we're best friends.

I have always liked sewing.  My grandma first taught me to sew about 18 years ago.  She sewed for a job so I think she was the best teacher.  I lost interest in sewing for a couple years and then got back into it when I had my oldest daughter.  I love figuring out how to recycle, reconstruct, upcycle used clothing to make it better.  It makes me feel good that I did it and it turned out okay.  :o)

I am addicted to sewing now.  I constantly have ideas running in my head for projects.  I have clothes that I'm going to upcycle, reconstruct EVERYWHERE!  My hubby hates it, but I will get through these piles of clothes/fabric!!  I'm glad I have another place to show my pride and joy creations!

I feel so honored that NinjaEema invited me to this blog.  I too was very disappointed the WR was going to be a paysite because I was planning on making a pledge this last Thursday.  But this site I think will take off!  I'm so excited to see all the craftiness and meet all you ladies!
