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.
Let me tell you...it was so much fun to be on the phone while she opened it.
I love making a gift geared directly for one person. Every little detail is specific to them or how they fit into my life.
It's even better when the friend "gets" the altered art sort of thing. Such as the rusted piece of metal strapping I used. I picked this up on a walk with my nieghbor...who I'm pretty sure thought I was a nut job...but puts up with me anyway. :) Actually, she's getting used to me stopping for odd bits of junk as we walk.
