I come from a very creative family but I thought the gene had skipped me. My mom and sisters are fabulous seamstresses. They quilt and do all sorts of creative things with their sewing machines. When I got married I discovered I could paint and my husband and I ran a little craft store and did shows around the state selling painted items. I loved every minute of it. After my second child was born I put my painting away because of time but discovered scrapbooking. I had finally found my creative gene but unfortunately i've never learned to sew like my family. I've wanted a cover for my expression for a while and my mom made this one for me. I love the soft colors of it. She did a fabulous job as always.
