About Me

Hey there! I guess you want to know a little more about me huh? (I guess that's a dead giveaway since the title of this page is "About Me"!)
   Well, first off my name is Kelie. I'm a 27 y/o mother of 2 (total of 4 kids counting my 2 step children).

   Dakota, my step-son, is the oldest at 14

   Shyanne, my step-daughter, is next in line at 9
 Gabe, MY first born, is 6
 Jordyn, my "baby", is 5! (WOW!!! They grow so dang fast!)

I'm married to my best friend, Donnie, (yes I know that sounds cheesy but it's true, he is my best friend)! He is very supportive of my creativity and is also my number 1 fan!

I am a self taught quilter/sewer, whatever you want to call me. I've been sewing now for around 2 years. I learned everything I know through trial and error, You-Tube, and some AMAZING blogs. I have an obsession with sewing and fabric, it was love at first stitch! (it still amazes me when I look back on my first projects to see how far I've came!)
(above is the first quilt I ever made! Completely out of bandanas (and a little yardage from Wally world! You can read about my finish here)
(above is my most recent FiNISH, you can read more about this quilt here)

I'm not 100% sure what my goals are for this blog. I mainly started this blog to let people see that if you are truly passionate about something and if you don't give up you can do anything. I try to keep that motto when I get discouraged because something didn't turn out right. I still have a long way to go to get to where I want to be in this community. I would love to create a business for my sewing and quilting adventures, we will see though, we will see.

I strongly suggest ANYONE that has a love for sewing and quilting to join the online community in some way, shape, or form! There is an ENDLESS amount of resources out there for every skill level! I've made some amazing friends through the online community (and would love to have many many more!)
(an amazing package I received as part of a Flickr swap)

I'm very active in the online community (more so than on my blog) you can find me on Instagram (that I use daily) under CraftNurseQuilt, I would love for you guys to follow me on Twitter, Pinterest, and Flickr (just click those little buttons on your right and you can find me!)

I love hearing from you all so if you have any questions or just wanna chat send me an email (craftnursequilt@gmail.com) I promise I will answer you!!!!
