Oh My Lanta!

Welcome to Crafting a Charmed Life, this has definitely been a long time coming. So I began crafting for as long as I can remember but the past 4 years everyone close to me has encouraged me to start a blog.
 I'm hoping to post projects at least once a week and that this can be a fun site for people who are on a budget and wanna spend time rather than money on something you probably have the capability to do yourself and save a few pennies! 
First Things First
.  . . I'm the realist.  ๐Ÿ˜†see what I did there.



Fun Facts About Me

1. Brace yourselves. . .I had a BOWL CUT๐Ÿ˜จ๐Ÿ˜ฑ
Yuuuupp. . . No need to adjust your screen, those are matching bowl cuts and dresses. ( I'm the one on the far right) My little sister, Caroline's expression is priceless! I remember this photo shoot took FOREVER because the photographer couldn't get a genuine smile from me.
Our momma calied it cute, we called it minor child abuse ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜‘



2. Shark Week is My Favorite Holiday๐Ÿน๐ŸŒž
Now I know some people may not consider Shark Week a holiday. . . But that is because they never grew up in my house! ๐Ÿณ๐Ÿ ๐ŸŒž Every year it's a big to do and there's always jello shots, inflatable sharks and I even arrange for t-shirts for the occasion. 
☎๐Ÿ“ž"Yes, I can't make it into work that week
. . . . Well Im exercising my right to celebrate SHARK WEEK ya goon!"๐Ÿ“ž☎


3. I'm a Licensed Massage Therapist✌
That's right yall! I was always fascinated with the human anatomy and healing touch and thought, why not?! The number one question people ask me is: 
" Don't your hands get really tired?"
 And the answer is. . . .
๐ŸšซNope๐Ÿšซ
by using your body mechanics it takes the strain off your *phalanges*(sorry Friends refernce, darn you Phoebe Buffay).


4. Quentin Tarantino is BAE
Be cool Honey Bunny ๐Ÿ‡๐Ÿ’ตAs one who never uses the term BAE you know how serious I am about him ๐Ÿ˜†. I have always loved his movies, it's always hard to choose a favorite, but if I had to. . . .Death Proof and Pulp Fiction. . 
Jules: They don't call it a quarter pounder๐Ÿ”๐ŸŸ with cheese? What do they call it?



5. The Men in My Life❤
You know the old story, you're a young, bubbly 20 something girl in a bar ๐Ÿธand just moved to a brand new city๐ŸŒƒ๐ŸŒ‰. 
The world is your oyster . . .
when you get the sneaky feeling that someone is watching you. . . as you start to think you're just paranoid, you turn and next to you at the bar. . . 
๐Ÿ˜There he is๐Ÿ˜
I am of course talking about my pug, GUS ๐Ÿ‘‘๐Ÿถ.
The meeting encounter with my boyfriend, John is very similar though ๐Ÿ˜œ


6. ๐ŸCharleston, SC  is Home๐Ÿ
I fell in love with this city years ago and the only regret I have is not moving here sooner. The weather, the people, the shopping, and most importantly
๐Ÿณ THE BRUNCH ๐Ÿณscene๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿท๐Ÿท. 


7. My Inspiration๐ŸŽจ
Living in such an awesome city there is so much inspiration everywhere. BUT my inspiration comes from my momma. She was hands down the
 ๐Ÿ‘‘Queen of Pinterest ๐Ÿ‘‘before there ever even was a Pinterest. 
As far back as I can remember, if I ever wanted something her answer would be, 
" Gurlllll, you could make that!" 
As a kid I never truly appreciated having handmade smocked dresses and vintage Mary Jane's. . . Because all my friends were sporting LA Lights shoes and rocking their scrunchies  like they were on Saved By The Bell and I'm chilling the corner looking like an American Girl Doll eating saltines๐Ÿช. . . . 
But now as an adult I'm able to truly appreciate the gift my momma gave me, the gift of  CRAFTING A CHARMED LIFE
