hello, hello, i'm new here.
i've always been a crafty type, but i tend to float from project to project. from beads in childhood to papercrafts in college to creating generally pretty & useful things now. i put in my time working at both michaels and joann fabrics. i taught one sister to make cards and now she's gone so far beyond me, making cards for all her friends and coworkers, and scrapbooks for herself. the other sister, i taught to knit, and she barreled right into crochet and is doing all sorts of awesome stuff in both of them. recently i branched out into sewing, and of course i'm having a ball.
i like to think of myself as a creativity fairy, sprinkling little motes of inspiration wherever i go. (this wasn't helped when i worked at michaels as the event cordinator, i would do all the demonstrations, and everyone would just page me if someone wanted a good person to brainstorm something)
i am also a huge packrat. i have mementos (bins) of each different interest, because one day i will
make that altered book about love, or scrapbook my european vacation, or knit just one more scarf before i give away all my yarn.
i have always been a disney fan, and the disney store used to rock for adults. now it's a big pile of stuffed characters in the middle with kid's costumes & clothing on the sides. before it started sucking, i indulged in a while bunch of winnie the pooh stuff that was called "simply pooh". pooh & characters were drawn in soft colored pencils and i just fell in love with (and bought) it all. i even went and worked at disneyworld (magic kingdom turnstiles "please put your ticket in the orange slot & wait for the arrow, thankyou and welcome to the magic kingdom!") in fall/winter 2000 through a program in college, and had a ball
i ended up using about half of my stationary, but i really can't imagine making a winnie the pooh scrapbook anymore. i decided to go ahead and try to sell it on ebay, so behind the cut is a picture of what i have up, and the link to the ebay sale if anyone's interested.( Read more...Collapse )
