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 recently was elected president of Friends of the Gilmer Public Library as well. I have been making crafts for the library to sell - my latest creations have been shadow boxes.
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 had 2 of us teaching crafts but Covid19 put and end to that. Now they want us to make videos to put on their website and Facebook page. Very interesting adventure for a public library!! . We also have a craft and fun day at the local historical society as we have room to "social distance" and everyone can wear a mask.
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 also lives here with her dairy goats and her dogs. She also has a full time job, goes to goat shows and gets involved in all sorts of things, too.
This year, her 15 year old brother decided he wanted to come back here to live so he can go to the local high school. Never a dull moment!!
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 Country Sampler, Country Living, Mother Earth News, Countryside, Back Woods Home, Country Woman, Mary Jane's Farm, Better Homes and Gardens, Real Simple and other ones I pick up here and there. I love to read the Stampington Company magazines on crafts but I'm too cheap to subscribe to them!!
