I've been doing crafts of all kinds for, well, decades. I sew, do collage and assemblage, make gifts and collect materials fairly obsessively. (My husband says there's a difference in collecting and amassing, but I ignore the implication.) I've never sold my work except in church bazaars and for charity...but who knows, maybe when I retire... I teach English and history at a community college, and I LOVE new ideas.
My interests are very general:
History...US and World... People and cultures of the world... Photography,especially new digital techniques... Gardening, flowers more than vegetables... Reading:sci-fi, non-fiction, history, philosophy, book groups... Art and design, museums, any kind... Travel,been lots of places; many to go!... Assemblage, collage and textile art... Environmental issues
My collections include:
Old photographs... Antique stereoview cards... Handmade laces and trims... Buttons and belt buckles from ladies dresses... Table linens and napkins from early 20th C... Stamps... Dresden and other paper ephemera... Specialty papers... Women's handwork...embroidery, crochet, beading... Postcards, calling cards, antique advertising ephemera...
What I cannot do: Draw or paint, but I keep trying
What I don't like:
Not much. Kale. I don't like kale. :) Usually I can find some element of interest in just about anything.
