"I really only started working with felt a couple months ago because my sewing machine broke and I needed something to keep my hands busy . . . I love working with felt because it is very forgiving and has a nice thick texture to it. In the past I spent a lot of time making jewelry for myself and for friends. Some of the newer items I've posted in my Etsy shop are necklaces. I think I'm making a natural transition back to my jewelry. I like to try new things and look for interesting creative projects to work on."
"In addition to my felt pieces and jewelry I make all my own cards, which I haven't posted on Etsy. I also have done a lot of painting on canvas and silk. When I have the time and a working sewing machine I like to make things for around the house such as drapes, pillows, quilts."
"I love Etsy because it inspires me to see other creative people. I am always really impressed with how artistic and wonderfully nice people are on Etsy; it's a supportive and creative extended family."
Now, here are some random tips I thought were neat from FamilyCircle Magazine May2009!
"An aesthetician at Splash Spa in New York City told me the easiest skin treatment ever" says Senior Fashion Editor Christine Bibbo Herr, "Slice a fresh strawberry in half and rub the cut sides on your clean face. Wait a few minutes, then rinse. The berry is loaded with natural alpha-hydroxy acids that help clear up blemishes and slough off dead skin cells."
Handle With Care
