Congrats Erica!!  I feel very fortunate to have had you for a partner in the button swap - Lush button goodness you crafted for me!  My son was back home this last weekend (July 9-10), and he had glorious compliments for my "gypsy suncatcher" and the tree of life button box you made for me!  You are so talented, and clever - I love your art.   Cool

Were so happy to feature cackle as our Miscellaneous board featured artist this quarter! From decorating gingerbread to sculpting clay pumpkins, her work is an inspiration!

Check out what she had to stay about her crafting process!

How long have you been crafting?  What's the first thing you remember crafting?

Hooboy, that's thinking back a way. I can't remember when I wasn't making something. I specifically remember this big paper mache pumpkin I made out of orange construction paper and wallpaper paste in the third grade. I thought I was Picasso. Todd Pearson dropped kicked it off the school bus on the way home. You there, Todd? I know where you live, buddy.

What's your favorite media?
I go through phases with stuff, but there is always acrylic paint in there somewhere. I always go back to the paint. At the mo, I love polymer clay, it's anything you want it to be. And you can paint it!  And I love paper. Loooove paper. And metal. And sparkly bits. And stuff.....the fascinating bits and pieces that you hold on to for yonks because you know someday you will have the perfect thing to put it on.
And I love tools. It's incredibly fun to play with tools. And good tools let you get on with things.

What inspires you?
Um, I'm sort of a sensory junky, so just about anything. And I go through phases with that too. Buildings, insects, plants, water, music, texture, sculpture, paintings, stories. On and on....Recently, I found an old book on Goudy and so I'm revisiting my typeface obsession.
 A little house with some kind of lettering on it may turn up here sometime.

Do you have a crafty/creative philosophy?
If you are longing to do something, find a way to learn the skills and do it. And be persistent.

On what other boards can Craftster members find your work posted?
Mostly my stuff ends up on the Papercraft or Polymer clay boards if it's not here.

What's your favorite creation that you've posted to Craftster?
It's usually the one I just finished. Right now, I love the Travelers House on the polyclay board. Actually, I really do love that house to bits.
Racky's Clock from the IYP. I had fun with that one. Mother Goose's Summer Cottage. I know that's more than one, sorry.

What's your favorite item on Craftster created by someone else?
Okay, that's the hardest question to answer. There are things on this site that are gob smacking good and truly inspiring.
Hmm. I'm not going to pick a favorite, because I don't think I can. 

Congratulations, cackle! Thank you for being part of the Craftster community and for being so dang sweet Wink!

cackle..I love your stuff and it's sooo inspiring. Your such a creatively open person that I know if I ever had a question on how to do something..you wouldn't hesitate to help.

Loved the question and answers....it was a hoot to read!  SOooooo talented.  (Todd Pearson better watch his step)... Smiley

I've seen all of her stuff in person and an lucky enough to own a few pieces (that's my house in her Plenty and Grace piece).  All I can say it it's all even more wonderful in person.  Cackle's a great choice for featured artist, she's the most talented person I know.  She's also fun, funny, a great teacher and cooks and bakes like an angel.   Kiss

Cackle you're such an amazing artist!  Whenever you post, I know we're all in for a treat.  The beautiful details you put into your crafts show how much you care about each one.
