Knitting/crochet (esp. Japanese super cute patterns), re-styling clothing, shrinky-dinks, needlepoint, and jewelry making. I've also been experimenting with crocheting with thin wire and making sculptures.
I'm very inspired by patterns, colors, clothing and design from, the '30s-'60s.
I've been away for awhile but very excited to be back swapping with my fellow artists and friends.
I love my dachshund Frankie and a rat terrier/mix, Olive, who are awesome. I've been a vegetarian for about 17 years, and animal welfare is very important to me.
I've been into underground comics for a while, some of my favorites are: Love & Rockets, Dave Cooper, Dame Darcy, Craig Thompson,Chris Ware, and Dan Clowes.
I also collect vinyl/art toys (which my kitten finds awfully fun to knock over).
Favorite colors: teal, aqua, gold, grass green, pink, sky blue, black
I'm also very into recycling/reusing/conserving in crafty ways. Right now I'm searching tips from the depression and WW II on saving around the house.
