Do you ever look at things and think “I could make something really cool out of that”? Well I do. There are so many things around us that just look like junk: old windows and doors, furniture from a yard sale, or recycled wine bottles. These “pieces of junk” can be turned is amazing pieces of art, or crafts. I don’t know if you can call what I make art. Essentially, I am taking lemons and turning them into lemonade. As the idea for this blog grew, I decided to also include some of the funny moments from my life. In these pages, you will also find stories about my everyday life as a craft loving engineer, who is slowing learning how to take the rough parts of life and turn them into sweet lemonade.
The Person Writing It
I grew up in the South and love all things Southern: sweet tea, country music and most of all college football. I was born and raised a Georgia Tech fan (my dad calls it “The Family Curse”). Once I graduated from Tech, I moved to Carrollton, Ga. Talk about culture shock. I went from living in the big city to a town that didn’t even have a Starbucks (well we just got one, it is the talk of the town). As you probably can guess, I am a ramblin’ wreck from Georgia Tech and a hell of an engineer.
But even though I love math and science, I have an artsy side to me and love to craft and knit. Unfortunately this side of me does not get to come out much at work. Therefore this blog is where I get to show off my crafty side. My projects are about bringing together my artsy creativity and my engineering know how to make amazing things.
