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'm also the secretary for the local Historic Landmarks Commission. Sometimes I help with food giveaways at a local fire house as well.
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 made altered book journals for them to sell for fundraising. 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.
My oldest granddaughter just moved back here with her dairy goats, rabbits and dogs. I'm hoping she will also go along with me to some local craft shows where I attempt to sell art and jewelry. She makes goat milk lotion and crochets various things - and we talk about learning to make goat milk soap... we shall see how that turns out! She also has a full time job, goes to goat shows and gets involved in all sorts of things, too.
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.
