Err, I haven't lived here very long... Tho I guess it's 2 years already >_< I'm really from New Hampshire, where it's hard to find someone who DOESN'T knit or crochet. We got moved out here because of my husband's job. I miss snow! And cool yarn stores, and the sister I crocheted with all the time!  Cry

I mostly sew, make things out of polymer clay, make artwork, and stencil t-shirts. I've been stencilling a lot lately. Smiley

I've definitely played with stenciling, and a little bit with polymer clay.. I want to learn to sew, been begging hubby for a sewing machine, he says for xmas, trying to talk him into sooner, mwahahahaha.... Have you played with gilding at all? gold leaf is somewhat compatible with both polymer clay and stenciling, you an create some nifty effects with it. It's like phyllo dough is to cooking, tho. It's ridiculously thin and can be quite a pain in the ass to work with, but once you learn to handle it well you can do some pretty cool stuff with it.

Hmmm no I don't think I've ever gilded anything... but it sounds pretty rad... I'm willing to try anything!

I did however find that in front of a fan is NOT a good idea to attempt. even a light breeze and suddenly the room is covered in little flakes of gold floating everywhere XD If/when we get together I should show you how, I've made some cool stuff by leafing over polymer clay. Incredibly geeky stuff considering they were for the guys I played D&D with at the time, but still pretty darn cool. It also sticks to hot glue, and looks like molten metal. ooooooooo.... shiiiiiiny... @_@

Anyhow, tell me more about you! ^_^ I'm 29, married, no kids, and a crazy geeky otaku girl (I've admined an anime forum since 2003). I was born in Ohio, moved to New Hampshire when I was about 8, to Colorado when I was 18, lived there 5 years, back to New Hampshire for 4-5 years, now been in California for 2.
