My name is Mtetar and I enjoy being creative, not only in arts/crafts and sewing, but as a childcare provider as well. All thanks to God because without Him in my life I am nothing. My creativity comes from God and I can only serve him by sharing what he has given me to others which include his WORD.
I have been unemployed as a nanny/childcare provider since December 2009. God has been giving me the strength and allowing me to survive each day since my unemployment in order for me to seek employment diligently. He has also given me the wisdom and knowledge to know that I have a job as a childcare provider when it comes to my granddaughter, because I am able to do the same things I would do at a 9-5 with her. This way is even better because I am able to serve God, by serving my granddaughter.
God has also blessed me with a daughter that reminds me daily about what my purpose in life truly is. I can’t thank her enough. She inspires me daily. I also am blessed to have a son whom blessed me with my first grandchild and my fourth. Just so you know I am the mother of two children, and grandmother of five.
I also give thanks to my mother that passed away in April of this year  at the age of 80. It was because of her that I became interested in sewing. As a child I would gather scraps of fabric and wrap it around my doll as her outfit. This was because I was too young to use the sewing machine and other sewing tools. I can still remember the day my mother asked me to thread the needle for her…ahhh such a fond memory.
And then high school came along and I had excelled as far as using patterns. I remember making my very first dress and skirt by way of pattern. Upon my highschool graduation, I pursued my studies at F.I.T. (Fashion Institute of Technology) in New York City. However, I was unable to complete due to lack of finances. After a long hiatus, a marriage, and two children later, I began working in the childcare field as a teacher’s assistant in daycares, and then progressing forward and becoming a nanny. But as I said in the beginning I became unemployed in 2009, and after my unemployment was cut short, I began to see life from a new perspective. I began to put my computer to use and join a few social sites (LinkedIn, BurdaStyle, and AARP), and now WordPress. I have made some great friends from all over, that are just like me.
