It's about time


I'm Cat. I am really bad about remembering to post to my blogs. I am going to try real hard to remember to keep up on this one. I am an artist/crafter. I do One-of-a-Kind needle felted wool sculpts, jewelry, and polymer clay beads, pendants and sculpts. I am planning on opening up an Etsy store as soon as I have enough inventory.

I work as a caretaker on a 175 acre farm in southern Indiana. It is also a camp for handicap kids and adults in June and July. I have a lot to do here to keep the farm running, so my crafting time is limited.

A little about me, I am 51, married to a wonderful man, Zoomer. I am into motorcycles, arts/crafts, SciFi/Fantasy, Reiki, Herbology (studying to become certified), Permaculture (just learning about), Nature and simple living. It is our dream to own our own land or find an Intentional Community we will fit into, and build a strawbale house and live off the land in a way that causes the least damage to our Mother Earth. I hope to one day raise Alpacas. We are owned by two cats, Isis and Kodo, and temporarily by a dog, Shasta. She belongs to the farm, but chose to live with us. I am going to use this blog to talk about my arts and crafts, with a little about what is gong on in my everyday life. I hope it will be interesting enough that you will want to read along.

Here is a photo of a necklace I just made which will go on my Etsy store as soon as I open it.

It is made with a polymer clay pendant that I got off of a wonerful artist on Etsy. I used Picture Jasper which I think set off the pendant nicely, and Moukite Jasper for accenting. The Moukite Jasper is a really pretty maroon color.
