Hmmm, me….is there a me in here? Haha! Yeah, that’s me, my name is Heidi, a little silly and a little less serious. I don’t think I could survive my chaotic life without a little laughter. OK, so maybe a whole lot of laughter. I am married and a stay at home mom with 4 children. My hubby and I have been married for 16 years (and together for almost 20…). He’s used to my craziness although it drives him nuts with all the little things that I keep. I warned him that if I was to stay home with the kids I might go a little nutty and my crafts would take over my life. He jokingly calls me a pack rat sometimes, but understandably I always seem to have the necessary items for school projects and my own crafty projects alike. I make ALL my kids Halloween costumes, this is something I enjoy. I love to create things with my hands. It is awesome and the best self esteem booster EVER. It’s also a tool to lose myself and relieve stress! I DIVE INTO MY SEWING ROOM….No no, I like to bury myself….Good night world…I’m sewing with Pandora…
Crafts, yup but SEWING is the TOP, TOP, TIPPITY, TOP of my list for things that I love. I knit, crochet, sew, scrapbook, paint, um…anything they have at a craft store! My new found love of Pinterest has inspired me to create new things. I’m excited to dive into projects that recycle things around the house and I can’t wait to share them with my friends!
I am enjoying my new blogging life! I hope to keep my friends and family entertained while sharing all the insights of my crazy life.
Why Clever Catastrophe ?
If you read my intro post you’ll understand. My life is always chaotic, and yet somehow we always manage to get by. I come up with these crazy craft ideas that sometimes end up in CATASTROPHE, seriously. Most of my ideas NEVER turn out like I planned, yet somehow they come out quite CLEVERLY and unexpectedly awesome. That’s where my name was born. It’s how it always IS, WAS, and WILL be.
The name doesn’t seem to suit my business, but it is a go to name to build my blog. A vector location for all avenues of my life to triangulate and come together. Does that make sense? I can put anything on my blog and it doesn’t have to just be about my business….and that’s ok with me. An all in one chaos shop. 😉
My REAL shop is named “These Old Blues” on Etsy. I sew up little clothing items, recycle blue jeans and t-shirts into awesomeness! be sure to check it out!
I also created a Facebook page also titled “These Old Blues” so I can easily share my business and crafting journeys. 🙂
Come see all the neat things I find and really get to know me!
