Thanks.  I was hoping for that feel - I loved the combo of leather and metal.  I love how it looks like a journal.

pjr107 - I have to wonder if her jokes and criticisms come from a core of insecurity and perhaps jealousy - maybe she is (consciously or unconsciously) jealous of your talent/creativity and how you are expressing it?

Oooooh - I am intrigued!  We could do a personal swap if you would like.  Is there anything I make you could be interested in?


Pretty much anything! I am very, very open to surprises or whatever you think would be appropriate!  And I have a wist list (though sizes and stuff may be different) here: http://wists.com/rockmygypsysoul

I'm pretty new and have only worked on my puppies' pictures but here are a couple I did in charcoal and pencil (of each one with either me or my hubs - sorry the one is on its side, lol) and then one soft pastel I just finished of my boy

They are lovely!

OK!  Do you want to partner up for this swap or do a private swap?  I think I would be happy either way - but now I would not be surprised Cheesy  But then again, if you made a piece with three of my dogs, or three separate pieces of my dogs - that would be something I would likely give to my husband - he would love that - and so would I!

OK, sent it in.  Hopefully I'm not like the 25th person, and shut out!

Good morning fellow Craftsters.  It is check in time for this week!

My question for y'all....

Who influenced/inspired/taught you to first craft?

My grandmother loved to sew, and it was fascinating to me to watch her at her antique Singer (in fact I still have a scar on my thumb from when I played with it while she stepped away for a few minutes).  She knit and my mom knit, and I remember bugging my mom over and over again to teach me to knit and I would spend hours just casting on and knitting over and over again.  My mom sewed as well.  My aunts made gorgeous lace pieces and I so wanted to learn.  Then I started experimenting with other media as a teenager, such as painting.  But it was not until I hit my early 20s and met a co-worker who became one of my best friends that I really got into it as a big hobby.  She cross stitches and I followed her to a floor show called the Creative Sewing and Needlework Festival (now the Creativ Festival) and I was fascinated by everything and picked up my first beading kit there, and became inspired to knit again, and learn to crochet.  I have been going every year and just loving learning new and trying new techniques since.  In fact I just signed for over 35 hours of workshops for this years Fall show.

I'm thrilled, because I am done three items off my checklist.  I am waiting for a supply of goods to arrive and that will help me make item number 4 on my list.  I am suspecting that I will be sending a 5 item package and should be sending in a couple of weeks if all goes well!
