Why GrayWhiskers? Well, let me start at the beginning. Ever since I can remember I have always been in to crafts, mostly sewing and paper crafts. When I was a little girl, about 9 years old I would walk down to the local fabric store and sign up for classes. We made aprons, dolls, tiny quilts and from that grew my creative passion. Since then my creative outlets have grown into painting, cards, home decor, and gardening. I am inspired by the world around me to create bright, and fresh crafts. But, one of the things I like best about creating new things is teaching people what I know and sharing with them how I did it. That is when I had to light bulb moment to start a blog. Which brings us here. But, why the name GrayWhiskers? Well, let me introduce you to a good friend of mine.
Buddy is my sweet old man cat. I have had him his entire life, and it has been a blessing. In the uncertainties, and hardships of the past, he has been the one constant. Buddy hasn’t had the easiest life either. He was found as a runt new born abandoned in and old warehouse. All alone. I got him 15 years ago and was told he wouldn’t live past 6 months because of his severe heart murmur. Pft. Doctors. Anyway, Buddy inspires me, so I wanted to pay tribute to him by naming my blog after his sweet gray whiskers.
