Refugee Crafter Introduction

August 21, 2010

I am so excited to be part of this inspiring community, but am feeling rather terrified at having to write an introductory post. My mind just goes blank every time I try to write this post, so I’m just going to throw a little bit of me out there quickly and get on to the pictures because those are really my best introduction anyway. My name is Tabi (short for Tabitha), and I have a wonderful husband and two adorable children. In addition to introductions, I am also terrified of earwigs. I don’t have a sewing space so I create on my kitchen table, pack it all up before meals, and post about it on my blog Refugee Crafter. I change my hairstyle and mind frequently, but one thing that never changes is my love of all things retro. Here’s a recent creation:

I made it for my brother-in-law’s wedding, and you can read more about it here.
  1. I'm more of a lurker than a commenter on this blog, but I had to come out of my hiding place to comment on your post – what a GORGEOUS dress!!!!! You look absolutely stunning!!!!!

  2. I love that dress, went to your blog and saw the close up of the flower with the rhinestones, just beautiful. Your intro was just fine. I to never know how much to write or what to write. I am waiting until I have something to show before I post to the group. That should be soon.

  3. Great job on the dress! I read your blog post and I totally agree with you on the scene from White Christmas where Vera-Ellen is dancing with Danny Kay. It is hot pink underneath! How cool is that!

    Love the dress. Keep up the good work. Can't wait to see more!!

  4. You did a beautiful job on that dress! That dress style could be used as a vintage wedding dress. Don't be surprised if you get offers from brides wanting to buy it to use for their wedding dress. Vintage wedding dresses are a hot commodity now!
