Hi! My user name is mi-mi-mia! I'm a grad student and have been living in Chicago for the past two years but have been crafting since I can remember. I typically make jewelry and especially love coraling size 15 seed beads. I also sew sometimes (made my HS prom dress many ... years... ago. Talk about a puffy dress!). I love to draw so I may eventually post some of those pieces on here. After lurking on craftster for several weeks and spending many a night past my bedtime staring at the screen I have become interested in other crafts as well, such as using resin or polymer clay, taking my old clothing and finding new uses, making shoes more creative (already ruined one of those projects!), stenciling, and pretty much everything else I see. This seems like such a welcoming and positive community. I can't wait to be a part of it!
