I have a wonderful mentor, my mom. She can make anything I think.
She can sew, crochet, cook, craft and bake. She used to make wedding cakes, and taught me to make roses when I worked at the Price Chopper bakery. When I was little she made me a Big Bird cake for one of my birthdays, it was awesome.
I can remember her making clothes, corn husk dolls, wreathes, and Christmas tree ornaments.
My dad is very creative too, he can pretty much do anything too. He has worked with wood, electronics, and cars, just to name a few things.
I don't specifically remember when I started crafting or creating art - I suppose I always have - but I do remember being in an art class in High School using oil pastels and not hearing anything else going on in the classroom. I was in total bliss at that moment. Nothing and no one could touch me, I was in another world. It was wonderful.
I have crafting ADD though and jump from craft to craft, medium to medium. I enjoy pastels, drawing, photography, making jewelry, crochet, and working with fire and metal. I should probably try to combine all these and do mixed media art, maybe someday.

So now I ask you:
How did you fall in love with the process of creating?
Did you have a mentor or take a class?
