I'm an artist and SAHM from the upper mid-west. In addition to my passion for paper art and mixed-media; I enjoy sewing, painting, photography, jewelry making and gardening. I love finding ways to reuse, re-purpose and recycle everyday items into art or other basic utilitarian objects.
I'm working at getting back to the basics: healthy food, reduced chemical load in our home, exercise and spending time with family.
I grew up in a household that had many collections. Rocks, sea shells, fancy tea cup and saucers sets just to name a few. Over the years I've gotten rid of most of my "dust catcher" collections and now only collect items that are useful, such as my Fiestaware. These are our everyday dishes as well as our "fancy" dishes.
I also have a vast fabric stash and scrapbook papers but they fall into the useful collection in my book. That's my story and I'm stickin' to it.
Do you collect anything? I'd love to hear about it or see a picture.
