Welcome to my blog!
I'm a craft and jewelry designer who has been creating designs for publication for about 20 years. It's the best "job" I've ever had! It started out as a part time job so that I could stay home while the kids were little and, over the years, blossomed into a full-time occupation.
I love to play and experiment with craft materials and media of all kinds--from crystals to craft foam, plastic canvas needlepoint to wirework! You can see my design for a painted tote bag embellished with buttons in the July issue of Pack-o-Fun. And, I have a wind chime design in copper wire and beads in the summer issue of Bead Unique. My latest booklet in plastic canvas needlepoint is Liquid Soap Covers from Annie's Attic. That's my style--I love all kinds of crafts.
Recently, I was selected to be a member of the Design Team for Amate Studios(TM). They produce jewelry blanks that can be filled with just about anything. Not sure what a jewelry blank is? It's a pendant or link or ring with a tray or flat area that you can fill. Check out their website: www.amatestudios.com. I am really excited about all the possibilities that these blanks hold, and look forward to the oppurtunity to design with them.
I hope you'll stop by my blog often. I hope to share some techniques, tips, links to amazing designers and their websites, and a free item from my crafty stash of stuff once in awhile.
