Welcome, Cathey E. DeRosa!

HELLO EVERYONE!

I call myself a crafter. Not really an artist. However, as I told one of our own; I consider my crafts, works of art. I get inspired about something for someone and start putting my ideas together and follow where they take me. I usually have a number of projects going at the same time.  My joy comes by giving the things I make away and seeing the looks on the faces of those who receive them, as gifts made with love.

I'm crazy with making miniatures of all kinds. I also work with decoupage, melts, mosaics, resin, jewelry, alcohol ink, acrylics, glass paints, fabric, paper, clay, tile, domino art, magnets and am into refurbishing small furniture as well...and the list goes on. Right now, I'm so into anything "mini", I think I love creating "small" best of all!

I'm 67, disabled and crafting has become a therapeutic and rewarding part of my life. 2017 was another rough year and 2018 looks the same. Surgeries and complications since 2015; why I'm not on TAC very often. But, I keep on craftin'!

The artwork I see continues to literally, blow me away, and am always impressed. I feel out of my league sometimes, but also get the sense it's okay and that's what I love about this site and the people I've communicated with. I'm going to try to catch up with you and your wonderful pieces.

Looking forward to making new TAC friends as well! Gosh, it's good to be back!

Cathey

Delightful subjects all around.  I enjoyed reliving those days while drawing it. There was a vacant lot on an adjoining lot and it was full of trees and rocks. Quite a playground!  Unfortunately we moved to Tulsa the following year, much to my and my siblings regret. Arkansas is a beautiful state... the home to my family for nearly 200 years.

Hi Cathey, thanks for the nice comment on my footstool. I have to say that I understand loneliness and it really sucks. It's sometimes so hard to know what to do about it. I joined our local rughooking group and that has helped so much. We meet every Tuesday for hooking and lunch. Right now I'm kind of stuck with what my next project will be but I will be sure to post it when I get done. Take care and thanks again, Bev

Thank you so much Cathey. I am glad that you liked my work and to know that we both share same interest. Even I am very excited to be friend with you, thank you for accepting my request.

I generally like to use Old Papers, Plastic and Glass. My Dad also use to upcycle old timber furniture, I think that's the reason why my mind is driven by the concept of upcycling.

Will try to post more such art piece and looking forward to see your beautiful upcycling art piece as well.

Vaidehee.

Hi Cathy,

I am glad you like the birds. Abstract like back grounds are easy to do, all I do is add colors and blend them (quick and easy). Since my divorce, I have turned my home into a studio - even the bedroom has an easel in it. haha
