Hi! I’m Alicia! Blogger – Artist – Crafty person
It’s now 2016 and after taking off doing business with interchangeable magnetic jewelry,
I’m heading back here to explore art and business as a combination with internet marketing.
Who here does art as their business? Shout it out and let’s connect!
Creating my way through painting, embroidery, and crochet. I love all things creative and love sharing pictures, videos and tutorials.
Been blogging about embroidery, wool, knitting, yarn, thread and now about crochet!
I’m married to an awesome artist and am best friend to a crazy Jack Russell, Mr. MacKenzie.
I’ve learned many crafts and explored many art mediums and along the way I met people like me that make really cute things (curios) and really do well at it. Yet, we never take the plunge and identify ourselves as ‘artists’. Then, I discovered Embroidery…and with that I’ve become brave enough to shed all other ‘identities’ and am ready to simply say, I am an Artist.
Currently, I’m a thread enthusiast with passion for embroidery, crochet, and knit. I taught myself how to knit. I create miniature crochet bears, dolls, and faeries. I dabble in painting…watercolor and acrylic…and am now exploring how to combine all of it together to design One of a Kind Original Art. It’s a great adventure and a new chapter of my life as an Artist and I thought I’d celebrate by starting this blog to share ideas and meet other artist and thread enthusiasts.
Won’t you join me?
As we grow and explore, I would hope that we move and shift our interests and adventures. I add to my list of growing talents and artistic expression…. baking. In addition to thread and fabric craft … I have explored and enjoyed some baking triumphs…in both sweets and BREADS! Please follow along as I add some bread side trips to my musings.
Let’s see what this new year brings us!
