The New Home Ec

FacebookTwitterGoogle+TumblrPinterest

Well hallo!  I’m Amy Anderson, and am very pleased to be here with you as part of the new Home Ec section of Babble.com.  Home Ec has changed a lot since I was in school.  I remember sewing the most heinous shirt in my high school Home Ec class – I used a serger for the first time to do it.  It was white with blue roses on it, and to finish the “assignment” (and get an A) I had to not only sew the shirt but wear it for the entire day.  Let’s just say that I didn’t realize I would have to wear it when I made it, and my rockin’ roses knit with a boxy fit didn’t impress anyone.  In fact, the fit was so horrible that I tried to hide for the whole day.  I would have stayed in my locker if I had fit.

Like I said.  Home Ec has changed a lot.

It’s fun, you can save a lot of money and it’s so satisfying.  Plus you create beautiful things.  And that is what I hope to share with you.  Beautiful things that you will want to make or do for yourself.

Before I get cracking, I would like to take an entry to share a few things about me.  Here’s what you should know:

  • I have been knitting since I was 15 – I also love sewing, general crafting, home decor and refurbishing.
  • I’m particularly inspired by the mid-century modern era.
  • I love Hello Kitty.
  • I wear bright colors and stripes or polka dots every day.
  • I’m the oldest girl of five children.  I have four younger brothers.  So I’m a bit of a tomboy.
  • I have been known to do projects with glitter moustaches.
  • I run and/or co-run three blogs: Mod Podge Rocks, Decor Hacks and Crafterminds.  Blogging is the most satisfying thing I’ve ever done.
  • You can find me on Twitter @modpodgerocks or at my Facebook fan page all the time – I’m quite chatty.

I’m looking so forward to sharing my life and some projects with you.  This is going to be so fun, and I can’t wait to get started!
