I am Darkshines, and I am a dork. I love comic books (hence the Avengers Assemble ref in the title of this thread) especially Marvel, old video games, Doctor Who, internet memes, My Little Pony, rabbits and hares, vintage styles (pre 1950), crappy old sci fi b movies, LOST, and a tonne of other things.   
I have a go at a whole host of crafts, examples of things I do do (LOL doodoo) are sewing by hand and machine, making jewelry, papercrafts (especially vintage/surreal collage), cosplay construction, special effects make up, upcycling EVERYTHING I can get my hands on and a little drawing. Examples of things I cannot do or have no will to try include anything involving food or body/bath products, knitting and crochet (although I finish my mum;s projects for her by stitching them together as her fingers are not nimble enough), making pompoms (I have never successfully made one!), quilting (I am crap at anything geometric or precise), working with faux fur, feathers or glitter or making candles. This is not an exhaustive list, I am willing to give anything a go, and I have the attention span of a puppy in a room full of tin foil. 
Current projects include three cosplays for myself, two for my partner and some commissions, a hand embroidery and a cross stitch, upcycling clothing, making art dolls, trying to make resin jewelry (and failing horribly) and putting together my mum;s knitted projects. 
I love making friends from all over the world and swapping (I have the same name on swap-bot), so don;t be shy if you want to get in the touch. My etsy store is www.etsy.com/shop/celticroseart and I have two facebook pages, one for my jewelry and gubbins www.facebook.com/celticroseart and one for my partner and I to show off our cosplays www.facebook.com/cosplayukofficial I am trying to get him to sign up here as well as he is an artist and crafter, in fact he is far more talented than me, haha! 
Anyway, nice to meet you all, feel free to ask me questions and stuffs Smiley
