Sometimes my love of crafts brings high expectations. People from all around the village come to my cottage with ideas and drawings of things they would like me to make. I have yet to turn someone away, though I think that patience is growing thin. 

I do enjoy making things, and I get very excited when someone brings me a challenge. But what do you do when a challenge is too...challenging?

The other day Mikey the gnome sent me a letter.

Dear Crafty, 

As I'm sure you know, my eldest princess has a birthday in about four months. I thought that this would be a sufficient amount of time for you to create her desired gift. Attached is a picture that should serve as an outline for the project. Hope you are well.


 As you can probably imagine I was very confused. What was this strange creature? I decided to contact The Great Wizard Google for more information.

"AH HA!" I cried.

It was called a shark, but what form did the child want it? A blanket? A pillow? A stuffed friend for adventures and such? So I took to my magic mirror and called up Mikey.

"What form would you like for the shark?" I inquired.

"I apologize," Mikey said. "I thought I had written in the letter that it was to be a sleeping pouch."

"Oh a bag for sleeping?!" I exclaimed. "How wonderful! I'll start right away!"

So now I am gathering my supplies for this new project. I just hope I can get it done in time, along with all of the other projects I have going on. Luckily those are mostly hats and small stuffed toys.

Well wish me luck on my journey. I shall keep you all posted on my adventures.
Remember, Never give your word on something that you are not absolutely sure you can achieve.

Hello internet world!!! My name is Crafty! Here are just a few things about me!

As you can tell I am a very chipper person. This is not always the case but how many of us can really say that we are happy ALL THE TIME? I'm mentioning this because there will be some days when I feel like venting my frustrations to all of you. I hope that it's not too often though ;). 

I've decided to put a little TWIST on my blog. It will still be things that happen to me in real life but I wanted to make it more interesting. More me. I will be writing as a woodland troll. That may seem strange but hear me out.

I love creative writing. I love to make things colorful and interesting. I read often and sometimes even use it as an escape. I would like to use this blog in the same way. A way to let out my thoughts, feelings and experiences in a way that makes them more entertaining. That is the way that makes the most sense to me.

"Why a troll?" you might ask. Well I think I relate to a troll the best. There are several different definitions of a troll. In my mind, a troll is a creature of the earth. They may not be the best looking creature out there but they have the BIGGEST HEARTS. I can just imagine my alter-ego troll sitting by the fire in her little cottage, crocheting a nice blanket for the new baby goblin down the stream. 

I hope that you like my idea for my blog. If not I understand, everyone has their own likes and dislikes. I can't expect everyone to think the way I do, and I wouldn't want life that way. It would be dreadfully boring. 

If you decide to go down a different path to a new adventure, I wish you the best of luck! 

If you decide to stick around and see what this could be, and I hope you do, then I'll see ya next time for the first official post as Crafty. 

Remember, Sometimes people aren't interested in the same things you are. That doesn't make them bad people, it just makes them different. The more unique people we have in the world, the more colorful. - Love Crafty
