Hi Everyone and Welcome to Michelle’s Hobby Haven
This site is full of all kinds of topics from Card Making, Adult Coloring, Scrapbooking and my journey to a healthy recovery since losing my thyroid in 2015.
Crafting and Card Making:
I started scrapbooking 15 years ago when I made my first scrapbook album for my mother-in-law for a Mother’s Day gift and have been hooked ever since. I have made many mini-albums, one of which was featured on Graphic 45’s website but have now transitioned more to card making. I have created written tutorials that have been published and have been part of design teams, many of which were hit hard with the decline of the paper craft world and are no longer up and running. I have stuck with it and see that the paper craft community is springing back to life. I am working on new crafting videos, hauls and tutorials so please check back often.
I have been in the adult coloring hobby for about 2 years now. Originally, I picked up the hobby because I wasn’t sleeping very well and under alot of stress. Since then, I have transitioned from coloring to relieve stress (though this still helps me with stress) to the artistic side. I have always wanted to draw but have relegated to only stick figures. These books allow me to be creative with colors.
Heath and Recovery:
Losing my thyroid took a toll on me in 2015 and it has taken two years for me to start feeling normal. In 2018, I have decided to focus on my health and well-being, taking the time to discover the path I want to follow and nurture my creative side.
