Mel. Long-time lurker, first time posting was today.
Glad I found this spot as I have been posting on a broad range of projects...I do a lot of different things.
Needlecrafts; Love Cross-stitch. Learning to knit and crochet. Still sew by hand.
Altered Things; I started off with wrecked records. Books. Am starting to do puzzles.
Jewelry making; i mostly use found/salvaged objects. i would call myself a green crafter...artisan is still a stretch as i am still new at a lot of things.
i have a warped sense of humor, it tends to come out whilst crafting. i am a dork. i like reading, video games. i confess i play farmville.
i live under a rock. today i finally figured out what wist was. i thought i came up with steampunk. lol. (after hours of watching the mister play fallout 3...i was all oooooh. there's an idea. ) i recently discovered youtube. (yes, i heard about it but never went on there...saw posts from ppl mostly.)
in case you are wondering about my name...This whole creative endeavor started with trying to focus on my arts and crafts, despite my affliction... shinyobjectitis. trying in vain to focus on getting one project done before starting with the next. In the beginning, I tried to suppress my natural tendancy to become easily distracted, trying to force myself to FOCUS on one thing at a time. But, now? Now I embrace it. I follow my flittering muse wherever she decides to venture next.... even if she is inspired every 5 minutes.
