"It is up to you to see the beauty of everyday things." This quote really encompasses my inspiration. I like to make useful things that are also beautiful. After all, if we use it often, shouldn't it also bring us joy?
I'm currently working with my sewing machine a lot. I prefer to sew cotton, flannel, and fleece. I also enjoy making beaded jewelry, working with sculpey clay, and painting on a miniature scale .
My father taught me that nothing in life is too big to conquer...
You can always eat the elephant, you just have to do it one bite at a time.
I enjoy creating items that make people happy.
Be it a personalized miniature for a Role-playing Game. Customizing the game pieces of a board game. Or creating a custom diorama that has personal meaning between two friends. I am honored to be a craftsman that can help create personalized gifts to share with others.
Miniature figure painting, dioramas and graphic arts in general including Photography and Illustration. I love working on the details of a project to give each piece that 'wow' factor.
I stopped drawing/painting back in 1997 I wasn't very good and I didn't seem to progress. In 2008 I was in a long work meeting. At the end of the meeting I notice my handout was covered in doodles. That is when I decided that art would be a hobby for me. About a year later I rediscovered miniature painting and I continue onward creating and learning.
All things craft related. The creative process for us is inspired by the artistic value in everyday items.
We create with anything that can be up-cycled and all materials that ignite our creativity. The beauty and functionality in the things around us.
We love spending time together. 3 M is a creative family. We share great ideas, laughter, and create memories. One could that crafting is the glue that holds this family together.
Great writers, artists, and musicians…creative people worldwide doing brilliant things. I’m inspired daily by global diversity in all of its persuasions, and how cultures are articulated by art, words and music.
My keyboard, and a vast library of books! I write pet-themed material for articles and a monthly pet column, which is sometimes distilled into quotes for my framed artwork. More often, I draw upon the works—prayers and poems—of people ranging from Abraham Lincoln to St. Francis of Assisi to come up with just the right artistic quotes to charm, amuse and fill the heart of animal lovers and pet guardians.
I thrive on creativity and learning new things. There are never enough hours in the day to learn and do everything I want!
Helping others inspires me. Sharing my method for promoting a little self love with my sugar scrubs.
Essential oils and the gifts of nature. The earth is rich with resources to make our lives better. Sugar scrubs are an exfoliating , hydrating, and gentler treatment alternative to salt scrubs.
Infused with essential oils that provide aromatic and topical benefits.
I don't trust someone who doesn't like the Golden Girls.
I love the texture of fabrics and their color play. I love being able to add a handmade touch to an outfit, a room, or a gift. I think every day items can be pretty as well as functional!
Fabrics & thread! Yarns, beads, lace, and buttons! Embellishments add a bit of sparkle & fun!
My hope is for you to find a unique item that will add a bit o' panache to your life & space in an off the rack world!
Colorful expressions that celebrate our interests, our passions and brighten your day. I enjoy making pieces that are meaningful for the person who owns it.
My first love was fabric. The color and texture captured my attention. From the first stitch I was hooked. In 1989 I discovered acrylic paints. I love the ability to create a small piece of joy.
Life is short, use every minute and surround yourself in what brings you joy!
