Hi there! I'm so glad you're here today. Let me tell you a little about myself. My name is Alissa and I blog at Big Ideas Little Cents where I share all kinds of DIY tutorials, printables, recipes and help you with projects you have in mind, all on a small budget. I'm passionate about teaching you new skills as you enjoy the work of your own hands. I have an amazing husband of 21 years, and we have 6 kids (yes! I just said SIX kids) ranging from 18 to 7. I've been a stay at home mom since our oldest was born. In High School you would most likely find me in the choir room. I really had no crafty ambitions at that time. But I fell in love with crafts when I taught myself sewing and stamping for "sanity time" when my oldest was very little. I know that even if you may not be crafty to start with, you can learn anything you set your mind to. Silhouette America is a great place to start!
