|This is me and my hubby, Jeff.|
Growing up I held the nickname of Chance because I was a chance to be around. Today, my family and friends call me by my given name, Chandeen.
I'm a closet designer who never finished art school, but who got a Master's Degree in Women's History from Sarah Lawrence College. I love to make all sorts of creative and fun crafts for me, my family, and my friends.
My passion for art and design has many avenues. I love to decorate. It never stops in my house. I'm constantly looking for the next best piece of furniture or solution to a design problem in my little 1200 square foot house. I also did all the crafts and designing for my wedding in 2009. I had every detail taken care of, and got many wonderful compliments on the event. Now, I have a dream to carry that creativity to other brides who might need my help. I'm also a reluctant artist. I hope to feed this raw creativity with more painting and sketching in the near future.
This blog is a chronicle of my creative endeavors and all the bumps along the way. I'm not just an artist and designer, but a wife, a teacher, and a homemaker as well. You will find posts about my struggle to get a full time job, recipes I have tried or created, and even my weight loss journey. As so many of us know, there is no one label for anyone. And, just like me, this blog is a reflection of my multifaceted life.
So, read, click, search, find, try, and enjoy. This blog is for you to explore and use as you see fit. Try a tutorial. Sample a recipe. Commiserate when I'm sick or just down. Most of all, thank you for visiting.
Don't be scared, it is no longer a chance to be around me.
