When I was a child, my parents would spend their Christmas shopping at the local department store.
As I grew older, my mom would go back to the department store with a gift basket full of all sorts of gifts, and my dad would come back and bring back some of the same stuff.
My dad’s gift basket was always a lot bigger than my mom’s, and they both had a lot of things in it.
I was obsessed with all kinds of things.
I would get into the world of science fiction and fantasy and all that, but I was also into the science of jewelry.
I love to make my own jewelry.
It was a lot more fun for me.
I remember when I was in sixth grade, my friends and I would have a lot in common.
I guess it was just a natural progression.
In seventh grade, we were really into making our own jewelry, so we had some of those craft supplies and things like that.
When I got my first scholarship, I made my own bracelets.
That was the first thing I ever made.
And my first project was making a jewelry box.
And I did all that with my own two hands.
I made everything myself.
It really was just my passion.
At that time, I was already an avid reader.
And as I grew up, I would read and listen to books like the Bible, The Hobbit, The Chronicles of Narnia, and so forth.
And it really was a natural evolution for me to be an avid reading, listening, and making crafts person.
I learned so much from making and making things.
So my friends, my family, and I were always trying to find ways to do what we loved and have fun and just be in the moment.
I grew to love making crafts because I was just always looking for a way to entertain myself.
The more I read and listened to music and the more I learned about the world, the more it made me feel happy.
It made me want to be like that, and to be a part of the world.
And at that time in my life, my dad was always making my birthday presents.
I think it was probably around the time of my ninth birthday.
And he made my mom and I some of my favorite crafts that she had made.
It would just be so exciting to make something that I loved.
And then I would just make it for my friends.
I could make things for my mom that she was proud of.
I mean, she was a very proud person.
She was proud that I had done so well in school, but she was also proud that she made things for us to wear and to make fun of and make fun on Christmas morning.
So it was kind of like, “You’re so amazing.”
So when I got that scholarship, it was such a thrill to finally be able to make some of these things for friends.
And they were just such a fun way to spend Christmas.
I always knew that I wanted to make things.
And so it was always going to be fun to make and to enjoy making things for people, because I had always wanted to do that.
I’m glad that my mom made my favorite things for me when I needed them.
She made so many things.
The last thing I remember her making was the handmade, handcrafted bracelets, and she made them for me every year.
I am so proud of them.
It’s a beautiful piece of jewelry, too.
It has a lot going for it, too, in my opinion.
And that was a gift for my friend.
I really did make these bracelets for her, and it was a real gift.
I just thought she would appreciate them, and that was the way it was for me, too — for me just to make these.
I want to make sure that I am doing my part to make people feel happy and happy and make people laugh.
And there is so much joy and love and happiness in the world out there.
So, thank you, thank all the people who made this possible for me and for the people that I love.
And for everyone else who has been a part, thank everybody.
I hope you enjoyed reading about my journey to craft my own life.
