hi there craftster.

i've been frolicking here for....years. i think i may have posted a few recipes, asked some questions, and given out some kudos, but i've never actually posted anything of mine.

i'm a bit shy, i suppose. anyway, here is an illustration i did for my sister, for her 18th birthday. it's a 'likeness' of the two of us.



it's not a great picture, i snapped it on the way to the airport. it's watercolor, ink, and patterned paper.

this is the picture that sort of inspired everything. i think we look like ghosts.

Guardie for life.

I am really interested in doing a personal swap, especially for greener things like reusable lady items, wool dryer balls, or other such things.  I can knit, sew, draw, and put things together in pretty neat ways.  Please PM me if you're interested.

Great work! That pattern on the paper is fantastic, at first I thought it was actually fabric.

I'm a big lurkie loo too, I've been on here forever, and check out how many posts I've actually done! And only one was something I actually made. Smiley

That is very pretty.  I'd love to see the picture that inspired it.
