I like to experiment with art forms, crafts, ATCs - I also make jewelry. I also make my own cards, love playing with paper, do some collages and journals - and I like to sew, weave and just play with fabric, yarn, etc.
I am willing to swap ATCs, jewelry, supplies, journals, cards, and fiber arts things - and am open to other things. I'd rather do USA and Canada, due to the cost of postage.
I like getting interesting beads and charms to use in my jewelry and other craft supplies.
I am an artist - I work in a lot of different media, mainly acrylic, pen and ink, block prints, and a technique I've never seen anyone else use with melted wax, ink and watercolor.
I also do a lot of volunteer work. I am the secretary and newsletter editor for the local historical society and the local Farm Bureau secretary. I joined another historical society in an adjoining county, as we have some common interests. .
Once a month, I get together with a group of artist friends to try new things, show off our latest creations, and just enjoy each other's company. Our local library has opened a craft area and another artisan and I have been taking advantage of the space, teaching classes, etc. Very interesting adventure for a public library!! I have been making altered book journals for them to sell for fundraising and also have some discarded library books altered to sell here on Etsy. We also have a craft and fun day at the local historical society.
I live 4 miles from a 2 lane road on a 112 acre farm in central West Virginia. I have 2 dogs and a flock of chickens - a big garden that is way too much and ends up mostly weeds - most of my property is woodland.
Coffee, cats, zombies, yellow, skeletons, and stinky candles or scented soap!
I read mysteries, adventure novels, books on making jewelry, artist biographies - and lots of magazines like Cloth, Paper, Scissors; Country Sampler, Country Living, Mother Earth News, Countryside, Back Woods Home, Country Woman, Mary Jane's Farm, Better Homes and Gardens and other ones I pick up here and there.
