Starting From Scratch

As far back as I can remember, I’ve loved the idea of making something from nothing. Well, maybe not from nothing, but by taking disparate elements and combining them into new and wonderful things.

Baking. Knitting. Writing. Felting. Crocheting. Scrap quilting. I enjoy all kinds of creative challenges, even when things don’t turn out precisely as planned. After all, creativity is a fluid thing so there’s always something to learn from a failed attempt.

I want this blog to be a place where we can share our creative pursuits, whatever they may be. I’ll post updates on my various projects and hope you’ll discuss yours as well.


About Paula Hendrickson

I'm a full-time freelance writer with an addiction to yarn, cooking and all kinds of crafty things. I come from a long line of creative and entrepreneurial types on both sides of the family, making creativity almost like competitive pursuit.

    Nice blog Paula! I look forward to reading it as it develops.

    • Paula Hendrickson

      Thanks, Mark. You’re one of the very few who know what my first big project is going to be, so I’m glad you’re looking forward to it!

  2. Wonderful! This will be fun.

    • Paula Hendrickson

      Thanks for checking it out, Deborah. Maybe one of these days you can try teaching me how to weave – then I could probably write a comedic post on my first attempt at weaving.

  3. Congratulations on your new blog. I’ll check back now and then to check you out. LOL
    And, I really like the concept.

    • Paula Hendrickson

      Oh…I think I see another Charlyne-Paula Craft Day in our future….It’s great knowing so many creative people!

  4. Congrats on your new blog Paula ! I am certain it will be a very entertaining and educational one.
