Brief Bio, News in Your Life, etc:
Loving life in the New River Valley in Virginia.  Mom to a Welsh Terrier named Charlie and a Wire Fox Terrier named Emma.  Married to a fantastic gentleman who puts up with all my crazy with grace and love.  Smiley

I love fun, funky, whimsical things.  I love nature themes such as constellations, trees, birds, etc. and particularly when the crafted item represents a particular type - for example:
Some of the possible trees: birch, oak, maple, gingko
Some of the possible birds:  raven, bluebird, woodpecker, tufted titmouse
Some of the possible constellations:  Orion, Cassiopeia, Ursa Major, Ursa Minor
Or planets (Saturn, Mars, Venus)...  Or moons (Io, Charon, Triton)

- These are just intended as examples of what I mean when I say specific varieties - obviously these are just some of the possible choices, not necessarily my favorites and definitely not the only ones.  Smiley

I love handmade tarot cards, and I collect ATCs of animal group names (like "a murder of ravens" or "a gaggle of geese", etc.).  These will ALWAYS be welcomed and appreciated!

I love foxes of all varieties, owls of all varieties, dogs - mostly terriers but all dogs are awesome, I love gardening and cooking and canning.  I love woodland creatures.  I love unexpected things, or things that have a bit of darkness in their whimsy, or creepy cute.

My Favorite Crafts To Do: Sewing, collage, origami, crochet, (beginning) knitting
Crafts I Want To Learn: All of them... Particularly pottery, sculpting, drawing... Oh drawing... I feel so incompetent.
