Hello fellow craftsters!

I've been browsing this site for a while, but didn't sign up till last week.  There is amazing stuff on here and I feel so inspired. 

I like to try my hand at almost any craft.  However, I like to make jewelry the most.  I also like to find unique items and use them in a project.  I am thinking about getting back into polymer clay.  I messed around with it a bit back in high school, but haven't touched it for years.  I'd much rather make something with my hands.  I am also working on sewing.  When I was younger I used to make purses out of old jeans and I have my old sewing machine, I just need to play around some more.  I can crochet, but for some reason I only pick it up in the winter. 

I am interested in screen printing and watercolors, so those will be my next areas of trying out crafting.

If anyone is in the Northern Illinois area feel free to message me.  I've moved back after being away at college and some crafting buddies would be great.

This site is amazing!

P.S. Can't wait for my first swap!

Thanks for inspiring me!

Hi and welcome. I'm from Northern IL too. Just found this site a couple weeks ago and am hooked on it. Can't wait to start swapping either. Nice to see a fellow IL person here.
