Threads of the Pattern

Archive for the ‘Introduction’ Category

Sometimes I psych myself out.

I have been writing this blogpost, tentatively entitled “the First, the Kickoff, the Most Rockin’ Thing I’ve Ever Written” for three weeks now, all in my head. I have alternately been hilarious, introspective, mushy, intelligent, and unable to form two coherent sentences in a row. And finally, while in the shower (where I do my best thinking) it came to me, like the voice of God, echoing inbetween my ears: Just Be Me!

Well, gee. Why didn’t I think of that?

So. This is me. Ayshia. I am a mom and a wife and a nerd and a pretty awesome friend. I occasionally cuss like a sailor and drink like a pirate.I sometimes like to stalk through my house pretending to be a ninja whilst humming my very own theme music. I like exclamation points, and feel that there is no such thing as ‘too many’. I like to play video games and make costumes and read -everything-. I love the Steampunk genre,the SCA, and learning new crafts. I am more than a little afraid of my sewing machine, mostly because it’s older than me. When I’m not crafting or writing, I admit to an addiction to Facebook and Pinterest as well as soaking up Vitamin D poolside during the 3 months of warmth my state claims to have. I met my partner in crafts, Rose, on a text based online game honoring Robert Jordan’s Wheel of Time series nearly 10 years ago. She has since become one of my very closest friends and my go-to gal for all things. Hopefully her voice will join mine on this blog, and you will learn just how awesome she is!

Threads of the Pattern began as a great big “What If” for us about 2 years ago, while planning her wedding. What if we could go into business together? What if we could live out the remainder of our days (May they be plentiful!) doing what we love to do? Which, of course, is spending time together, wallowing in what is fondly considered to be “Crafting ADHD” and creating exciting and gorgous crafts for ourselves and others to enjoy? In time, Threads of the Pattern will hopefully become everything we envision and more. This blog is the first step into Greatness. I plan to take you all on a journey into the behind the scenes of crafting. I can’t guarantee that sometimes I won’t wander over into other topics, as I have an opinion on just about everything, but mostly my hope for this blog will be all things crafty – for the novices, from the novice. Not everything I write about will be for sale, but it will all be interesting and educational! I hope you will enjoy Threads of the Pattern as much as I enjoy writing for it!
