1.Crafts I still practice:
quiltmaking and sewing crafts , knitting, drawing, painting on paper and fabric, beading, felt crafts, embroidery, calligraphy.

as a little girl,
I was always making things. I had a crayon melting tool that made pictures with melted crayons! I had a lite brite, an easy bake oven, I took lessons in needlework, painted ceramic Christmas trees and figurines, glued fake gemstones to jars, wove potholders, colored countless coloring books, made Barbie clothes, created little cities with a towel dropped on the floor and mother's costume jewelry pieces, I would cut out cartoons and glue into a book of humor.

|Milo noticed the mug when I moved it forward for a picture! |
Milo: I notice everything moved, new or out of place. I especially like faces. I chew faces off my toys! I've been waking up every night for weeks now and want my people to get up and go outside with me.
I think the doggie cookies are calling my name waking me up, what do you think?
