Lots of crafts can be more difficult with monovision.  I lost the vision in my left eye about five years ago very suddenly and it took a lot of adjstment.  Threading a needle is not an easy task with depth perception problems let me tell you.  At the same time I developed a pupillary defect and my left eye doesn't dilate properly relative to the amount of light present, which means that having enough light for my good eye for crafting (particulary close work) is too much light for my left one (I can sense light from that eye) and I can't stay at close work for long periods because it causes headaches.  Luckily my right I is 20/15.  I really should try crafting wearing a patch - hey my partner could make me an awesome crafting patch!

I am very lucky to have so many artistic men in my life.

My grandfather was a painter, My father is a metalsmith, but started off after art school as a weaver.  Infact around Christmas he came up to help me finish a whole bunch of toys that I was making to sell at craft shows!  My fiance is a fellow animator so is a fabulous artist....when he too isn't playing video games.  I have yet to get him to craft, but I bet he would.

My husband helps me occasionally. He gives me his opinion on how things look. If I get too frustrated that I can't stand to look at it anymore he goes over and work on it to help me get past the frustrating part. Of course this is only on certain projects. He doesn't know how to sew so I don't get his help there, but if he can he will.

My Hubby says he doesn't craft, but he makes his own fishing lures, which I think totally counts. It's almost akin to making jewelry. In fact, I was contemplating stealing some of his spinners to make jewelry with, some of them are so pretty! Wink Also, when he hears me swearing at the sewing machine (particularly when seam binding is involved!), he comes over and helps. It usually makes me more frustrated, b/c he can sew a straighter seam than I can!  Roll Eyes **mumbles under breath: "doesn't craft! ha!**

I really should try crafting wearing a patch - hey my partner could make me an awesome crafting patch!

If we're ever partners in any future swaps I'm going to make you a patch collection!! These are my thoughts so far:

I would start out like I was making a set of pasties but with a soft silky fabric that would be touching your skin
"Quilted" patch
sequins patch (lots of them in different colors)
ribbon patch
glitter patch (would have to "seal" the glitter so it didn't come off all over your face)
button patch (covered in buttons for one, one big black button for a Coraline patch)
"Origami" patch (lots of them, a swan, a tshirt, anything else I learn to do glued onto the patch) This would be 3D
Resin patches (would have to make a curved mold, then the decorating possibilities are endless) I'm picturing you wearing a candy sprinkles patch

Of course, if the "base" is made of a pastie then I would definitely have to make 1 boobie tassel patch!!

My 2.5 year old likes to sit by me and "help" guide the material through the sewing machine. She puts her hand on the material next to mine. It is so cute. She always wants to help in whatever I am doing. Even the laundry.  Cheesy

I would love to have a little crafty person Smiley I swear working in a shop makes me broody... Lol.

I am behind in how much I have done but my dissertation will be heading to the binding place on Tuesday and I will be uber crafting because if anyone thinks Im doing all my portfolio work right after all this then they might get hit in the face!

Hectic times!

I cant wait to A) not sit in front of my laptop in my living room writing about prostitutes and serial killers and B) craft for a whole day without guilt!!

I got another package!
AND IT'S PIES!!!  Oh how I love some yummy yummy pies.



Little mini pies!  I told my husband that I would have shared with him, but each pie is different and I needed to try them all.  Just to be polite to my generous stalker.   Grin



Another note.  AND THERE WERE PAYDAYS IN MY LAST PACKAGE!  I wonder if I could go make a claim at the post office.  Smiley

This is an awesome package and I have one helluva stalker!  I am getting so spoiled....and fat......but mostly just spoiled.   Wink

Thanks mysterious stranger.  I am trying the peach pie right now and Yumm Yummmmmm.
