Hey, my name is Alex and I was born in the 80s. If Doc Brown had invented a REAL time machine, I’d spend my next vacation in the 80s. 🙂

I live in the beautiful State of Maine, not too far from Stephen King. I love the outdoors and spend a lot of time fishing, four wheeling and hunting with my love, Mr. M. We share our home with my two cats Pepper and Blackberry who might show up in a picture or two, because they love to be where I am when I do crafty things (esp. sitting in my lap while I’m sewing haha).

I love the 80s because of the cool music, movies, toys and fashion. Read more about my love for the 80s here.

This blog isn’t about the 80s though. I’m blogging about my crafty obsessions and addictions like sewing, paper crafts (mail art, card making etc.), penpalling (I cut back on that), crocheting, jewelry making, baking, photography, postcards, web design etc. I love being creative and you’ll see when you read my blog. 🙂

About this site

I’ve waited for quite some time for the 80sgirl.com domain to become available and I was lucky to get it once it was available! 😀

The site went live on July 22, 2012.

Me in Alaska :)
