I'm a second generation crafter living in the Willamette valley in Oregon. My mom used to take me to craft shows when I was growing up. What a fun way to get to know people! I looked forward to going and seeing all the people.
I do several different arts and crafts. The one I've been doing the longest is bead work. I learned peyote stitch when I was in high school. It didn't take me long to come up with my own designs. After all, who wants the same thing everyone else has? I have now been beading for over ten years, and I still enjoy it.
The thing I've been doing more of lately, though is silk painting. I love the way dyes flow when I paint them onto the silk! I got started five years ago when I bought a scarf at a local craft fair for my cousin. It was beautiful, but I got to thinking, what if it had something I made on it? Specially…
