Adding this- forgot to say why I started a blog- I went to a blog to help my jewelry business, but now I am more into photo shop and altered art. I still make jewelry and have been selling off my supplies- still have a ton of cameos left to sell. Etsy and Artfire are the places I sell through, though I have a page on my blog. I have made some really good friends blogging and hope to make more.
This will be fun! I am Linda originally from Owego, NY and have lived in Colorado Springs, CO for about 40 years. We have the entire front range to look at and Pikes Peak is always beautiful.
I have been married to Bob for 25 years in Feb., photo on the sidebar. He is a machinist and works at home making tattoo frames and machines for the tattoo industry. I have one daughter Tara and 2 beautiful grand girls. I am a Proud AF Mom and support our troops.
I work at a motorcycle dealership in Colorado Springs, make jewelry from cameos and charms and various arts and crafts. I have always done something craft wise my entire adult life. I was an art major in school and did a lot of oil, acrylic painting and photography. My Etsy shop is on the sidebar link.
I have been collecting Vintage Photos and am learning more in photo shop and working to create more altered art and collage.
I collect various other items old kitchen sifters, rolling pins and old aluminum cookie cutters I do use them for my "famous" rolled butter cookies.
We have 3 darling black kittens, Bob and his brother Merlin are 7 months now and Savannah is 5 months.
Bob is the social cat, he helped the directv technician put in the new dvr, by purring and talking to him. Merlin is the smart one, he tells Bob when he wants the laser light. He is also the one who is on top of the bookcase, tv etc. Savannah is the baby and she has the cutest little short legs, Bob calls her the low rider cat. She keeps up with the boys.
If you did not see the post when we adopted them in October, they were all adopted the same day, Savannah and the boys got along just fine from the moment we took them out of the carriers at home! She chases after them as fast as she can. We have my Sister in Law Laurie's bird feeder and they spend a lot of time in the cat beds watching the birds and chirping at the squirrels. It is hard with the three at once, but they will sit like a dog and then like a squirrel for a cat treat. They are a lot of fun and keep us busy! New photos to follow! They just don't sit still very often for photos!
I will have 3 giveaways, easy to mail stuff! 3 tea cozies that Bobs Mom Sally and I made, 2 Laurel Burch cat fabrics, (I just love those cats!!) 1 is for a full size tea pot and the other is for a tea for one pot. The blue calico fabric is for a smaller tea pot.
