I'm in my late 40s, grandmother to six between the ages of 11 months and 8 years old. Love any kind of crafting. Very gifted at some, not so gifted at others. Married to a wonderful man named Joe, who also crafts. I love to collect vintage crafting and vintage sewing supplies and gadgets, etc. I collect anything with farm animals and apples (my kitchen decor),also collect anything with fish and lighthouses (my bathroom decor). Collect anything to do with deer, moose, bears, log cabins, etc. (my living room decor). I am hooked on vintage (any kind) patterns, vintage cookbooks (love to cook, bake, etc) and vintage craft magazines. I collect old dolls and stuffed toys. I collect oddly shaped teapots. I collect vintage board games and vintage jigsaw puzzles. My favorite colors are pastels in pink, green, yellow, purple and blue. I also like earthy colors of pine green, brown, tan, etc. I like anything to do with Christmas (my favorite holiday), I'd have Christmas all year if I knew how to do it. I love any holiday really. They inspire such good memories from when I was a child. I like having penpals and making new friends. I like learning about other cultures. I love anything to do with cats (I have two, Cleo and Sassie). I love animals in general but partial to cats.

Crochet and Sewing would have to be my two favorite things. Crochet is really my first love. I've crocheted since I was 8 years old and can virtually make anything. I'm trying my hand at creating my own patterns now. I enjoy many cross stitch, plastic canvas, embroidery, quilting, decoupage, I knit a little (still learning), papier mache. I also like to learn more about ATCs, scrapbooking and origami. I enjoy trying my hand at new crafts.
