I know what you're probably thinking...dude just ripped off Aerosmith. And then you thought, "Hey, a guy isn't allowed to sew and if he does, he is definitely not allowed to tell anyone else that he sews." Well, you are correct on both accounts. I think Steven Tyler is use to being ripped off by now so I doubt his lawyers will come after me. And as far as a guy admitting to sewing...well, you'll get use to the idea.
Let me tell you a little bit about myself. I'm a cook at a restaurant...or more accurately, I'm kitchen slave labor. I went to college for computer science, but I never graduated. I'm straight (come on, you know you wanted some clarity there), single with no children but I do have a little niece (she's gonna love all the girly crap I make for her...my sister, probably not so much). I learned to sew a few years back and since times are tough and budgets are tight, I decided to use my old skills to help with a little bit of extra income.
That's the truth, there's no way around it. I'm not a stay at home dad with kids that grow like weeds who wants to make clothing on the cheap. This isn't a hobby I love dearly with my whole heart. I don't plan on giving much of my stuff away unless I find a special cause. I do think it's cool as crap the kinds of things that are out there to make, and I suppose that's the side of things that I'm really interested in.
Why did I start this blog then? Well, the narcissistic side of me says I want to show off all the cool crap I make. That's kind of true. I want to document my growth through all of this, because there are a lot of things that I don't know and plenty of skills to hone. But I also want to make some friends, engage in conversations, share ideas and mostly, LEARN.
I hope you will subscribe to my blog. I like to keep things light and entertaining. I hope that you will not just be a silent peruser. I'm on Google Hangouts and love to chat.
