Wow! Your weaving looks awesome!! I have like zero artistic talent. Lol. All my projects usually involve building something around the house. Or fixing things.

That takes some skill! I just finished building a 6 panel box with the help of my SO. I forgot to take pics of it though. LOL

I do!!! Like you said it feels like I always have something in the works

I like making mine and my boyfriends Halloween costumes by hand each year. This is from last year we were Woody and Jessie from Toy Story



I do a lot of polymer clay hair accessories, felt purses, acrylic paintings or just random things i think are cute and sell them in shops around town and online

WoW! I'm so jealous at how well both of you sew! Amber, those costumes look better than the store bought ones! I make wire crochet jewelry.

Well thank you!! 


If I'm being completely honest, I have NO idea how to properly sew or have ever even used a machine. I just hand stich things the way that seems right to me and hope it works out 
 I'm only a bit over 5 foot and pretty thin so store bought adult costumes are always massive on me and just never look right. I don't like going the "passing off a bra and underwear as a costume" route, so I just started making my own to accommodate my body type. My boyfriend just got jealous and wanted a matching costume 


Your jewelry looks very intricate! I like the way you photographed the jewelry in the bottom picture, for some reason it reminds me of a tree stump (in a good way) and really highlights the colors well

I get frustrated with projects as well. I currently have a dress in the queue that I started 3 years ago, the sleeves were driving me nuts so I put it in the back of the closet and as soon as I stop being pissed at it, it can come back out and see the light of day. :D /emoticons/biggrin@2x.png 2x" width="20" height="20" />

Thanks chica! I like to keep busy. On top of all of this, I am also a brewer, mostly cordials right now but hopefully, once we move into our permanent home, I can start setting up wine and beers.
