About me

Hello, and welcome to Annmakes!  I am Ann and I created this blog all about crafty things because I love to make stuff and to learn how to make more things. Hopefully, there is something here that you will find useful and maybe even fun.

I started on this creative journey when I was very young and could hold a crayon. I learned to sew before I learned to read and write!  My first creations were dresses for my dolls, and soon I was making bags, toys, and eventually my own clothing.  I have always wanted to learn how to make anything and everything.  I have enjoyed collecting tools and supplies forever.  I was taught many skills by my mom, I took classes and even attended a Fine Arts program in College.  What I could not learn through formal training I taught myself.

Now I enjoy making Mixed Media Art as I can incorporate all my loves into one project: whether it be paper crafting, sewing, painting, drawing, knitting, crochet, and just about everything else.

Today I am an accredited Designer in the Arts and Crafts Industry, an Influencer, and a Digital Content Creator.  I Design patterns, and projects for various manufacturers,  I write How To's, and DIY's for publication,  I essentially create every day and I love it!

My studio is in our home where I live with my two sons, husband, and fur baby cat.  We are in the Ottawa region in Canada where we get to experience 4 wondrous and changing seasons a year.

I am very happy that you are here and I look forward to sharing my creative journey with you.
