Insatiable Curiosity

Those who know me will attest to the fact that I have an insatiable curiosity. I am constantly searching for inspiration that will spark new ideas or improvements to current ideas in the making. 

It all started with a jar of vintage buttons from my grandma. I paired them with modern beads and jewelry findings, and created my first button-flower bouquet. That idea grew into lapel pins, then bobby pins, then magnetic purse charms, zipper pulls and alligator hair clips. Once I started working with my hands, I couldn't stop!

Now, I've purchased a sewing machine.  This is a whole new world! I am a graphic designer by day and have always had an addiction to the many different kinds/colors/textures of paper (my family says this paper addiction started when I was very young). Now, my addiction has turned to fabric! So many colors, designs, weights... so much to learn! Ahhh, a new venture!

Being most comfortable embarking on new projects, this sewing thing is turning into something. Soon, I'll have a few more things to begin selling- I have to dial in a thing or two first! My prototypes are coming along very well and just need a little tweaking. 

My goal is to keep all BlueDaisy items earth-friendly by either creating reusable items or upcycling vintage finds into everyday items with practical uses.

Have the most amazing day!   :)
