First off I gotta say that this journal skin is by
Its purple, its Halloween and cool. Just gotta make something on my own, but since I haven't posted in over a year and a half, I didn't even know this skin thing was an option. Well, now I do.
Anyways, I haven't done a whole lot of art crafts of late. I've dabbled in candles (which are more a scent art than visual art) I've started learning how to make salves with herbs, oils and bees wax (way awesome) I highly recommend Tillers International if you ever want to learn to stuff "the old ways" www.tillersinternational.org
. I participated in their Home Herbal class a couple weeks ago. My first class there and it was awesome! The whole atmosphere there is just so great. November 6&7 my hubby
and I will be taking the Blacksmithing I class. I can't wait. New things to learn!
I've still been making some jewlery, just not as much (as you can see.) I'd like to get more beads, but feel I gotta use what I have before I go buy more, and well, not sure what to do with what I've already played with. It comes and goes though. Working M-F and only seeing my hubby on the weekends kinda keeps me busier more days than my old schedule. Though I wouldn't go back on 12 hr shifts if you begged me! Like having my evenings and every weekend free, just wish my hubby was home on the evenings during the week too. *le sigh* some day.
Since I haven't been using Deviant religiously, the changes aren't bothering me too much. The new way groups are, is pretty cool. I like how you can submit something instead of just the group posting your stuff. You actually get the traffic! I know this is nothing new to the rest of ya that are on here all the time, but I just had to share my feelings on it.
Well not sure what to say, we'll see if its another year before I post.
