Welcome to My World

Okay, lets give this a shot.

My name is Korbe, I am a seventeen year old high school senior who is rather eccentric in personality and incredibly eclectic in passions. I have decided to create this blog to help document this upcoming year, and possibly beyond, depending on how this goes.

In the fall I hope to study musical theater on the east coast, but in the meantime, I am pursuing some of my other interests and passions.

I have decided to learn how to sew and knit before I go to college, so that I can create a wardrobe as equally strange as I am on a budget that is virtually nonexistent. So I have been perusing many a blog and forum looking for beginners projects/clothing mods and have made a bit of a list of things that I’d like to make.

Learning to sew and knit seems like it would make a decent blog, right? Maybe, but this is about my odd assortment of crafts, so here goes number two. I used to work in a bakery, mostly I ran cash register and answered phones, but when I worked there I always had these ideas for really good recipes, however since I didn’t have a degree that said I was a pastry chef, my boss never really wanted to hear about my recipe ideas. It was ¬†understandable, but unfortunate, so I had a list of cool ideas that never really made it anywhere except the snack table at family gatherings. I want to start coming up with new recipes again and find ways to make them in my limited kitchen space.

So here is The Challenge:

Starting on Monday, the 16th of February, I will have two weeks to complete a craft project and a baking project. I’ll have two new projects starting on the 1st of March and so on and so forth. I will also be posting a new blog AT LEAST once per week, if there is anything to report mid-craft, there may be some mid-week blogs, but there will always be a report at some point during the week.

Due to my limited amount of supplies and equipment, the projects are going to start small. I will soon have a sewing machine, but in the meantime most of my projects will have to be no-sew or hand-sewn. Also, I lack a decent mixer in my kitchen, so I may not be able to make everything from scratch and just have to settle with embellishing something pre-existing.

If you have any project ideas or suggestions, leave a comment. I hope you enjoy the ride, I know I will!
