Hiya! I'm Chrissy. I'm a fiber artist and I design and sell sewing and embroidery patterns. I'm a Pagan Homeschooling mom of two kids and we are an urban homesteading family.
I'm married to my best friend of almost 20 years. We all love hiking and impromptu weekend adventures- like camping - and exploring our amazing state (Oregon).
I am a Pagan, with a focus on the goddess Holda, and Germanic Paganism. I studied German in college and I am trying to teach my family German.
Besides working on my business art, my hobbies include watercolor painting (and sometimes acrylic), drawing and block printing. I love to work on miniature canvasses, ATCs or other small works of art.
I seriously love sending and receiving things in the mail. Stickers, notepads, ATCs, teeny tiny ephemera, washi tape, book pages esp in other languages, shaped paper clips.... lots and lots of options. Let's have fun!!
I love stripey socks.
I love milk chocolate.
I love all things handmade.
Hand Sewing, Sewing with Felt
Block Printing, Stamp Carving
Painting and Inking
My favorite book is The Time Traveller's Wife. I don't love the movie. I also love Diana Gabaldon's Highlander series, although I have some serious concerns with her grammar and writing.
My favorite movies are the Postman and Practical Magic. I absolutely love time travel movies also. It's my favorite motif in artistic media, though neither of my favorite movies are time travel movies! lol Doctor Who is my favorite television series.
I love Mumford & Sons, The Lumineers, Beach Boys, Billy Joel.... hmmm... there are others but I can never think of them.... I have very wide-ranging tastes and listen to indie rock on pandora most of the time.
I love tea- mostly herbal infusions, but flavored black or green teas are nice too. Darjeeling is also good. Chamomile & Peppermint are my favorites.
I drink a lot of Kombucha - well, I make it with green tea and honey, so it's called Jun. I'm happy to share how to make it, and I'd totally share SCOBYs if you know a good way to ship it. :)
My favorite foods are homemade comfort type foods - Clam Chowder, Brownies, Spätzle, Sushi, Gyros, Hummus, Pfeffernüsse
My favorite color is blue. Pretty much any blue except royal. And even though blue is what I always choose, I love all colors really. Bright, muted, so many colors!!
I love folk art style of designs and patterns - lots of details and patterns and contrasting colors.... zentangle-y, doodle-y type designs.....
I love bohemian, gypsy, artsy styles....
I love handmade pottery, handmade dolls and felt items. Hand embroidered designs.... I really love handmade things. A lot.
I am a minimalist and anti-consumerist. That does not mean that I don't love art supplies. And books.
I love owls, foxes, hedgehogs, woodland creatures, gnomes, celestial motifs, like sun and moon. Goddess designs, female empowerment motifs, female, feminine (not "girly")
I have two children who love to swap. They draw and paint ATCs often and are quite good. If you're interested in seeing their work or swapping- they would love that. Especially swapping with other kids.
I love getting pages from antique books, especially in languages other than English, but all are pretty nice!
I do not like things with characters on them. I do not love frilly, pink, doily type stuff.
Tasteful nudity ok in art, atcs, etc....
Stickers are great. If I won't use them, then the kids will. No character stickers please.
Handmade postcards welcome, decorative, shaped postcards welcome. Please no tourist-y type postcards. LOVE blank postcards.
