I can't be the only one here. Can I?

I know quite a few cats in bloomy who are crafty, not sure if they're on here though.  I'll send 'em your way when I talk to them next, if they're on here...

Born in Chi-town, raised in Michigan City, been in OC since 1976.  Started selling crafts when I was in 9th grade.  Now, I have so little time, I dream alot and keep ideas hidden away until my life becomes my own again.  I'm raising my 12 year old grandson and it keeps us hopping.  This web site relaxes me.  I browse the new posts and admire the "kids" showing their stuff.  A few years ago, when country was in, I sold my stuff at local X-mas shows and made quite a bit every year.  Now, I into making purses, art dolls, crochet and being a Bluebird Landlord. What's your favorite craft work?

Lol All of them are my favorite at one time or another Cheesy

This week, I am into making windchimes out of recycled junk (mostly found objects).
Last week I was doing my collages. The week before that, it was oil paint. Next week I have to experiment with wire hearts plus sculpy clay (a suggestion I got on a thread here).
I have made art dolls before, I may do that again. After my first few frustrating and failed attempts at knitting and crochet I decided that was something best left to someone else.
I do not sew as much sewing as I used to, but always have a quilt in progress.There is the tip of the iceburg.

 I can see how a 12 year old boy can keep you on your toes. There is a little resale shop  in town called GAP- I forget exactly what the initials stand for, but it is a not for profit org. to help and support folks raising grandkids. I go in there often to see 'what's for sale this week'.I bet you may be able to sell something you have made there (they may do consignment...)

Does being a 'Bluebird Landlord' mean you have bluebirds in your yard? Huh

Yes.  We have many birdfeeders.  Last year I saw a blue bird in the front yard.  Believe it or not, its the first I ever saw.  So I hooked up with the guy that has a wild bird shop at Peddlers Village in Goshen.  He specializes in blue birds.  He told me how to attract them.  Last week we had two babies hatch, but sparrows broke in the house and tossed out the babies.  The parents are starting a new nest already.  It takes time, and guardianship to keep them around but they are the neatest show around.  I love wildlife and dogs.

Until I found this web site, I thought I was the only person who gets all involved in different crafts.  I made some wind chimes last year.  I have chime all over my yard.  I did one with anything I could find in my husband's garage and silverware.  Looks bad, but sounds pretty good.  I am collecting old keys to make one from this year.

I've never heard of that store, but I know there are grandparent raising grandkids support groups. Ours is kind of a strange situation.  He sees his mother all the time, he just doesn't like her present husband.

Bluebirds are beautiful. It seems like I heard the hole in their house had to be smaller than a normal bird house to protect the eggs.But I guess sparrows would be about the same size.

Keys work well in windchimes, but I found unless you hang them really close together you have to add other pieces of metal to get a pleasant sound. I also hung mine off a circular top, so that may have had something to do with my sound situation...

I would have to say that your Grandson is blessed to have you Smiley

Hey everyone.  I'm from the Sunny Side of Louisville, in a little town called Floyds Knobs.  Anyone from Floyd, Clark, Harrison, or Crawford County on here?

Hear the chimes,
did you know that the wind when it blows
It is older than Rome and all of this sorrow

Hello,
My name is Sheila, I'm 31, married without children. 
I live in Indy near the Pyramids.
I am a lazy craftster, I am notorious for starting something and not finishing it until months later. 
I like decoupage, sewing, and whatever random craft catches my eye. 
Today, I spent four hours cutting out 5x5 squares of pink, purple and denim fabric for a quilt for my neice for Xmas.  It's my first quilt and I know that if I start it now, it might be done in time.

Hi Sheila!
I know where Indy is, but not sure of the Pyramids- my sister lives in Indy so I'd have to ask her Cheesy  I'm in South Bend- 3 or 3 and a half hours north.
Good luck with the quilt- pink and purple denim sounds neat
