It seems that I was born in the wrong time, the wrong generation..
I have loved arts and crafts since second grade where my teacher
Mrs. Norvell drew people like this:
Everything she drew was rounded.
(Mrs Novell did a much better drawing than I can do.)
I have noticed that more than not, the ground root art forms
are originating in the Northwest.
My thought on these groups/organizations are very cool and give the
homemade crafter HOPE. Maybe one day you will see my stuff
on one of these sites or better yet, ETSY
