Christine W.

Hi. My name is Christine Watters.

I agree with the rest of the internet that 2016 was a momentous year. For me and my small family, we relocated from Toronto the San Francisco East Bay area. This was a greater personal challenge than I anticipated.

Now, after years of being a working mother with a challenging job and full home life, I am a stay-at-home mom with plenty of time to create and a mid-life identity crisis. I’ve dabbled in fibrearts for 20+ years, but over the last few years my work consumed more and more of my creative energy and I had less and less time (and energy) to create my art. Now I have the time but don't know where to (re-)start. So, here I am.

I don’t really have a favourite word but this morning I came up with two words that particularly apply to me right now: blessings and phoenix.
