I have something special to share with you today :)

Translation for my foreign friends.. I apologize ahead for
any 'kick' on the the english :p
"When did you start crafting?
In my childhood I always enjoyed playing with threads and needles, I can't specify at what age I started but I have memories of being very young and showing my cross stitch pieces around the house to my family.
It's a bit of family heritage, my godmother taught me cross stitch and with my mother I learned the basics of knitting and crochet. The love for cross stitch prevailed and over the years I've been learning how to do it better. Even now, I'm still learning new things, especially through the web and through friends that I've met.
What is your favorite technique? (Cross Stitch, Embroidery, Crochet..)
I like doing many different things and there is always something new that I want to learn! But certainly I've been working more on my cross stitch, definitely my favorite craft.
In addition to stitching, I make decoupage, needle felting and I've also learned to sew a little in order to finish my works.
How did Caixinha de Pirlimpimpim started? Why the name?
My blog started with the encourage from some friends who already knew my work through my Flickr gallery. It started from fun and curiosity! It has been almost 3 years and I'm still discovering new things through the interactivity that the blogosphere gives us. I'm grateful for the opportunity to meet great people from all over the globe.
For the name I wanted something that I could identify myself with and not be directed only to cross stitch. I was starting a space to share the variety of crafts that I know (or new ones that I would learn), where I would be able to show a little from my country to my foreign friends, and where I could just share everything that would make the readers smile!
Taking a little box with works, adding that I'm a positive person and I love the mystique of the enchanted world of fairies.. like it's said in fairy tales "fairy dust only works if we have happy thoughts". So 'Caixinha de Pirlimpimpim' ('Little box of fairy dust') was born!
How would you describe your work?
I believe my blog readers are best people to describe it. I leave it to the ones who visit me the opportunity to comment, take a peek on my 'Little box of fairy dust' and share your opinion!
Dreams for the future?
I hope to continue with my blog for many years to come, learn, innovate in what I do and spread inspiration for all those who visit."
