I grew up with a Mom who loved to sketch and draw and encouraged me to "play" with anything art related. Her sister, my Aunt Jenny was an award winning oil painter as well as an artist in pastels.
In the beginning I loved sketching in graphite and charcoal. I also enjoy working in water colors. In the mid 90's I began to learn to paint in oils. Later in life when I attempted creating my first website I discovered digital art. Not being able to find backgrounds and buttons for my website I began playing around in paintshop pro and created my own. Later I turned to PhotoImpact which I use to this day to create digital art of all kinds. I even began my own web graphics & design business.

Recently we (hubby & I) made the decision to move. Just prior to making the decision I had begun a project which I have been diligently attempting to complete prior to our move. I love to crochet and had made some snowflakes for our Christmas tree last year. I had several people ask if I sold them? Since it was mid December I decided to wait until this year to attempt to make and sell any.
Last month I began choosing patterns I liked and started to crochet &…READ MORE
