Re: Tell Us About YOU!!!

Welcome Allison, we look forward to seeing more of you around here! You seem to have caught on to the basics of posting images and such, but feel free to contact me or Sue Ann (Fauxgeddaboudit) if you need any "Guiding" (we're here to help, as are all of our wonderful members!).

Re: Tell Us About YOU!!!

well, like a few other's I've been MIA for a couple years.
I think I did this before but I can't remember what I wrote...
so here's 5, hopefully new, things about me:

1. I'm Stephanie and have been married to James for, oh geez , 18 years.
We have had several 'fur'children but no humans. Currently our child is Balto, the 8 month Leonberger. I'm 44 and need to do some yoga...

2. to pay the bills and get my human kid fix, I drive a school bus in circles around Vail. I've been doing that for 15 years. The kids here are great and I actually do miss them in the summer, well .... it's nice to have a break though... and in the summer I am a mechanic's helper. So far, I can change the oil and all the filters on the bus!

3. I love to drink wine but I get headaches now...oh yea, I'm 44....
but it's still fun for my girlfriend and I to go paint pottery and drink wine...

4. my art consists of a love of many different things...I like to build boxes and paint them, I like to throw pottery, I love photography and I love beading and I am trying to learn a little bit of sewing.

5. oh and ...I'm addicted to Leonbergers...yep, I subscibe to an online chat list for Leo owners around the world and all we do is talk Leo...
OMG...

I love this place...there is so much inspiration around here. I want to be sticking around this time and keep in touch better.

Woof!
Steph
oh yea...here's me and my baby boy...

Re: Tell Us About YOU!!!

Sboutette my thoughts are with you. In April 2009 I had to 1 biopsy for breast cancer and a return visit 2 weeks later to remove a bit more. I am now doing fine and will have regular follow up every 6 months.

About me.

1 I live in NSW Australia. I am nearly 56 married to 2nd husband for 20 years this August.

2.I am a very creative type and have always loved painting and drawing but I also sew , cake decorate and I love to cook!!!!

3.My attitude over the past few months have changed for the better I am content with who I am,I dont stress out any more and I am happy to be healthy I figure there are people out there worse off than me .I think what you see is what you get and am at my happiest when I am in my daggy painting or gardening attire.

4. I like to travel and see new places and have spent a lot of time in the south pacific and queensland tropics snorkling. I hate large cities , crowds and shopping malls. I dont go on holidays to shop. Never been to Europe but did a trip to Canada and loved it and all the space.

5. I would be really excited if I sold any of my art work. I paint landscapes,flowers and have started to do a bit on the decorative side.

Re: Tell Us About YOU!!!

I just spent an hour reading through this thread. So interesting to see how people describe themselves. Now I'll jump in as I am new to this forum.

1. I am 53, no kids. Married for the first and only time at age 40. Still going strong ( much to everyones surprise because I am a bit independent. ) Two step-sons, two delightful DIL, and 4 delicious grandkids. Have two fab med/big dogs, Buddy and Zipper who love following me out to the reefs. I'm a wee 4'11" so all wall space looks huge to me.

2. Air Force brat, 4th of 4 children, born in Germany but lived all over the world. I always have a bag packed ready to go! Have lived in N.C. for 2 years but moving back in Dec. to San Salvador, Bahamas where I first discovered I was born to be a mermaid.

3. Been a vegetarian since I was 13.( 40 years! Holy crap.) Love gourmet veggie cooking. Love food! Many jobs over the years. Have worked as a bartender, chef for 10 years, ran a back country lodge, taught telemark and downhill skiing, worked as asst. director at an Arts Council, peer councilor at a womens shelter. Silk painter for 12 years. Jill of all trades, master of none!

4. Terminally shy in person ( definite introvert) so I absolutely suck at self- promotion which is a big downfall. I went back to school with a gaggle of 20 year olds last year to study Decorative Restoration. I kicked butt! Really boosted my confidence realizing how all of my life experiences and odd skills I've collected help me in my work.

5. Been an artist as long as I can remember. Try anything once. Love mosaics, pastels, oils, acrylics, metal sculpture, silk painting, batik, collage, photography. Can't call myself a muralist having only done one ( and not finished yet ) but I am very interested in getting more experience and learning from the great talents in this forum. ( Also love to dance like a freak show at music festivals but that's another story.)

Great to read everyones stories.

Li

Re: Tell Us About YOU!!!

Well, I don't remember doing this before, so suppose this is as a good a time as any.

I'm Mary, I live in rural Arizona [would love to hear from others doing murals & such in AZ to compare notes, talk shop]. 52, I have 3 grown children, and 5 grand children.

I love all sorts of creative arts and history, especially doing old fashioned things. I have done custom sewing, pattern making, embroidery [any type you ever heard of and probably some you've never seen before!] lace making, spinning, weaving, natural dyeing, as well as all sorts of painting.

I am a Donna Dewberry One Stroke Certified Instructor, Level II as well as a Wall & Furniture Specialist. I love doing murals and faux finishes; especially trompe l'oiel

In 2009 I was extremly busy with other things, and didn't paint or draw all year. But situations have changed and I'm painting up a storm these days. I would like to make DA my next career and ditch the current day job.
