  • I do quilting(LOVE it!), crocheting, I read a lot, I do cut-and-paste collages, and indoor gardening, to name a few. I have around 80 plants in the house, some flower and some don't, and it's been quite a learning experience potting, repotting, figuring out fertilizer, light(I have a fluorescent, and I changed all the bulbs in the living room to the brightest CFL's I could get), water... Plus it's really interesting to have a plant that only grows naturally in one place in the world, or at least I think so :)

  • I crochet (ALOT), I also enjoy card making (similar to scrapbooking but much faster, lol) and I used rubber stamps for those projects, as well as making coasters. I used my stamps to stamp images onto unfinished tiles to decorate them, then sprayed a finish on top to seal them :)

  • I love making jewelry. It is just my hobby right now, debating on starting it as a business.

    I don't make the stamps, I buy them from from my favorite company (The Angel Company) but you can also buy them from any craft store.  I buy the tiles from the home improvement store.  This is an idea of what they look like.  I do magnets too :)
