I do a bit of different crafts: sewing, embroidery, stuffies, stamping, etc. but since having been diagnosed with cancer a couple years ago, mostly I've been doing a lot of paper crafting. Things that I can sit and do, and stop and start easily without too much prep time...you know, creating beautiful things is therapy. Soothes the soul and just makes you feel good.
I like to make tags, a little mixed media collage (especially if I can find a cool old frame or letter rack or box or something to do it in/on) and bookmarks. I love to read and bookmarks are fun to make and give and USE! I also love to make beautiful things for people and then really "do up" the package when I wrap it. A unique wrap with a cool tag makes me happy :o)
The things I do have a sweet cottage/shabby feel. Drawn to soft / retro colors and prints with vintage appeal.
Please stop by the Cottage and have a peek, I'll be happy to see you.
