My name is Rachel and I like to make things.

That seems to be the easiest way to introduce myself to people. It also makes me sound like I am a recovering addict, which, I guess, is a little bit true.

I have a day job as a Graphic Designer. People actually pay me to be creative every day – it’s a pretty good gig. But, working primarily on a computer for 40 hours a week leaves me a little hungry for creative outlets that let me use my hands.

This blog is a place where I can share my side projects with you – even the ones I’ve struggled with (and maybe completely failed at). I want to be able to share the process of creating things – not just the shiny finished product.

Sometimes the mess is the best part.
