Daily Prompt: Overview of Some Crafts I Do

 

Please enjoy an over view of some of the various crafts I have fooled around with. I plan on doing a separate post with an over-view of fabric art projects.

I used to watch those Quilting Arts programs on PBS for years which gave me so many ideas to play with. Working in mixed media was making me such a pack rat because there are so many ways to repurpose items and just another way to recycle. Since I’ve temporarily moved to an apartment I had to downsize but decided to start selling more of my art or finished pieces because I created but then didn’t want to part with most of my creations unless they were gifts. I would rather make space for more things to create with than to keep holding on to that which is finished, done, over, unless I’m really in love with it.
God bless!

depression,

the sin of growing old in a vain culture

and various dealings with the fickle finger of fate.

There is a core of strength and protection all around me.  It is called faith.  Faith from the living Word that never fails.

As a child I lived near one of the oldest graveyards in the area with stones from the 1700’s at least.  A few of us used to go up there to read them.  Thanks to the television program I watched as a young teen, Dark Shadows, I thought cemeteries were very cool.  Ghosts anyone?

I had a very cool Halloween song that I might have shared before.  Starts with:

Jack ‘O Lanterns big black cats and witches that fly in the sky!

I'll get you my pretty, and your little guns too! (hope I don't get deleted)

Halloween also led us straight into the other holidays later on.  Used to be we kept the Halloween harvesty feeling way past Thanksgiving and I loved that.  I remember when Christmas didn’t really start til a week or two before Christmas.  Again, that was over 50 years ago and I don’t think that stores were even open on Sundays.  I think they started doing that in the late 60’s, some of them.  I love autumn!  It’s just a great time of year for so many reasons.
