As I start this, I immediately realise I am procrastinating.
Right now, I should be working on a university assignment.
The assignment is to utilise social media to research a topic, and critique its success in providing information.
My topic? Handmade and up-cycled craft.
Why? Because it is what I would rather be doing!!
In the midst of compiling the essay about the use of social media and blogging in the craft community, I thought – I spend a ridiculous amount of time online, I should be part if this!
So, in an attempt to join the forever expanding world-wide-webiverse and return a contribution to the crafting community, I have joined the blogging ranks!
I am still increasing my skills in sewing from an amazing woman, my mother. She has been sewing most of her life and is extremely talented and creative, and I can only hope I can persevere to become as talented as she is.
Why 2 chooks and a chick?
My mother, my aunt and I were having a “crafternoon” / “Stitch ‘n’ bitch” kind of a day, and in amongst the silliness, my mum and aunty said something about how daggy they were. I challenged them on that, and told them it would be quite a sight to see “Two old chooks and a chick” out on the town. And a name was born – although, it was voted that the term “old” be removed 😉
Where to from here?
I’m hoping to utilise this platform to demonstrate the creativity of these geniuses that I have the privilege(or curse) of being related, and my lessons that may benefit others.
Stay tuned for the evolution 🙂
