I like to try all different kinds of crafts. I do crocheting, knitting, beading, card making, printables, plastic canvas, decorative painting, I even have all the stuff to do palmer clay, when I get around to it, but my main love is watercolors. I enjoy painting them most of all. And of course, the puter is a big part of my crafting. I get a ton of ideas from this site. Thanks to all you posters.

Hi,
I'm lou in NC. I do simple pins,magnets,some snowpeople,
I did angels for a while. I recently made some old-timey
rag dolls for myself like my mama made me when I was very young.
I'm now making memory rag dolls for family from
clothes of mama who has gone home.
A treasure for family members.
At the present time I'm making fleece animals from a very,very simple pattern that I designed,
to go to the children's ward at a hospital.
They are a big hit.
I try my hand at some of the crafts on voy,
the best site on the internet.
I like this thread.

I am Sharlet and I'm from Missouri. I mostly do needlework and have done almost all forms of that. Right now, I am addicted to the Knifty Knitters. Am making newborn/preemie hats for one of our local hospitals as well as for a couple of other charities through a 'looming' board that I belong to. Am also crocheting an afghan for a wedding gift. Do a lot of counted cross-stitch and plastic canvas work too.

[> Re: OT...What kinds of crafts do yall make? -- Terri, 20:16:37 02/05/06 Sun [1]

What is the Knifty Knitter???

[> Re: OT...What kinds of crafts do yall make? -- Sharlet, 21:25:29 02/05/06 Sun [1]

Hi Terri,
Well, I'll try to explain. They are round looms in various sizes that you can knit on. My sister gave me a set for Christmas. They are 4 different sizes. There is also a rectangular loom which I haven't quite mastered yet but am trying to do a doll blanket for my great-niece on it right now. I'm thinking if you go to www.provocraft.com and click on Knifty Knitter on the right-hand side there will be some pictures for you to see. I am really addicted to this! I have made 50 or so hats so far for the various charities and to just give away. I have become a yarn addict too. It's awful. . . but fun! :-) Check out the site and see!

[> Re: OT...What kinds of crafts do yall make? -- sunflowerfreak, 21:47:39 02/05/06 Sun [1]

Hi I am Norma (sunflowerfreak) from Massachusetts. I have dabbled in just about everything crosstitch, quilting, One Stroke painting, sewing, any kind of craft. I just got finished reorganizing my craft stuff. Some was up in the attic and some in my spare room. If I could find what I was looking for, I would just go out and buy another one. So I have about 80 pairs of scissors, 63 bottles of glue. I will be making pillows on candlesticks holders for Mother's Day and I'm making sheep and bunnies on rusty bedsprings for Easter. I am very much into primitive crafts and some victorian. I also make the Tampon Angels. I would like to thank everyone who wrote poems for them. I appreciate it so much. I am not a poet and probably never will be.

Hi, I'm an Illinois transplant living in Arkansas. I do a little of everything. Just recently started the scroll saw and painting the wood. I sew alot of Barbie clothes and sell them at a craft/antique mall. I have sewn Barbie clothes since 1972! I love small plastic canvas things. I'd like to make a village though. I enjoy working on the smaller count plastic. I don't particularly enjoy xstitch and haven't tried tatting. I taught myself how to crochet 3 years ago and used a learn how book and the internet so I could find out where to put the hook when starting a new row. Not too successful yet. I want to learn to crochet on thread and can't manage the 4 ply yarn yet. :) Anyway, you might say I just try anything I think is cute. That is why I enjoy the list as there is such a variety of things out there.

Re: Voy Sisters, getting to know you - craftwise.... -- Claudia 13:11:38 07/06/06 Thu [1]

This information is so interesting and I finally decided I would add my own "stuff".

I am Claudia and today is my 73rd birthday! I would love to do cartwheels and celebrate, by my old body just won't do what it used to. I am grateful for a wonderful life and all the pleasant memories.

My favorite colors are the primary colors - red, yellow, green, blue....and black!

Crafts have been a constant companion for me for well over 30 years! Mostly I sew, but I have dabbled in just about every medium at one time or another. When all is said and done, I come right back to sewing. I am hoping very soon to get into making quilt tops with my "scrappy stash"!
Yo-yo's are fun and I love making pillows out of vintage chenille spreads. I make basic items like oven door dresses, potato bags, rice bags, detergent bottle aprons, paper back book covers, tooth fairy pillows, and pillow cases - for a craft coop nearby.

In the past I have collected "kittie thingies" and lots of other things, but we recently put our home up for sale and I have purged all the collections that I had displayed and stashed back.
I have spaces in two antique malls, so they have all been moved to the shelves there. I was surprised to find that I could really live quite well without the clutter.

I love to collect the vintage items to sell. I think the fun is in the hunt! I sell vintage hats, purses, pillows, dishes, toys, buttons, patterns, etc. and love when someone buys something I have searched for and bought because I loved it.

I love to read and work crossword puzzles. I have a few "yard areas" that I try to keep along with a few pieces of "yard junk".

Thanks for listening to all of this, but life really is wonderful and I cherish each and every day.
Hugs,
Claudia

Re: Voy Sisters, getting to know you - craftwise.... -- Tona 06:15:09 07/11/06 Tue [1]

Well, it looks like I'm the last one. It's almost 5am here so I hope I can think well enough to remember.

NAME: TonaB (Tona),(Stitchmom)Interesting stuff about me-have had DH for 36 yrs; 3 sons-Roy 32,unmarried;Walter 30,Married to Deborah, son Brad; Steven 26,will be married to Karen July 14,2007. Born in AR, grew up in FL came back to AR for college and got married. Been here ever since.
FAVORITE COLORS: Blue, Pinks, Mauves, some greens
FAVORITE CRAFTS: I have tried just about craft there has been. My favorite is probably crochet. I can make so many things to use as gifts for friends & family. I enjoy trying new things through the swaps, I'm really glad they have been made on a slower pace. It gives me more time to come up with a really good craft and make it.
COLLECT: My husband would say I collect fabric and yarn. Oh, and sewing machines. Anyway---I collect foxes of any kind. I have many different kinds.
HOBBIES: Okay now--someone is gooing to have to explain the difference between hobbies and crafts? Is there really a difference? I know, I know!!! I enjoy reading, watching a good John Wayne film on our big screen tv with my husband, and I enjoy my husband enjoying himself out in his train room-that's toy trains.

Sorry to wait so long to get this done but all of you know how busy the summer gets. TonaB

Re: Lets have some fun... Getting to know everyone on here -- Doreen G., 15:36:00 04/29/09 Wed [1]

My name Doreen G. and I am 53 years old. I live in a rural part of Rhode Island. I am a retired special education teacher- I taught for about 30 years. I am not working right now, but plan to go back to work when the right job comes along...

I have been married for almost 19 years and have 2 teen aged kids (son-17 and daughter-16) and 3 German Shepherd dogs. The dogs are my babies...

I am not especially artistic, but I enjoy paper crafts- making greeting cards, bookmarks, etc. I have a passion for cooking and baking. I am not a fancy cook, but I enjoy making things from scratch (no pre-made pie crust for me!!!)

I ended up here because I have been co-chairing our church's bazaar for the past 3 or 4 years. I look for ideas for crafts to sell that are unique and will be easy to make.

I especially enjoy the encouragement and support that I get here. My family is dealing with some struggles right now and I am so glad to have the prayers and encouragement of caring friends from all over the world!!!

Re: Lets have some fun... Getting to know everyone on here -- Huskerfan, 16:04:07 04/29/09 Wed [1]

I am Linda from Nebraska. I am 55 I think. I have always been a stay at home mom but now all the kids are gone so I do alterations for other people. Makes a nice little income.

Have 3 kids: A son Nickolas 27 next month, A daughter 25 and Married, And a son Tyler who is 20. No Grandbabies but am waiting. Tammy had cancer and was cleared 7 months ago and So am waiting for her to tell me she is going to have a baby but the Doctor said sometimes it takes a while after all the chemo.

My DH is John and we have been married 29 years. He is a teacher at a community college. He teaches Machine tool.

We have 1 very spoiled dog who will be 2 on July 3. Also have 2 cats and 2 pretty large fish.

I love all crafts and will try almost all but like Amber I can not paint anything but walls. I do mostly Sewing and love to crochet. I did get to the store yesterday and get some beads as I am going to give that a try. I also make almost all my own cards. Mostly I think I spend way to much time here on Voy.

My most favorite to collect is all the Husker stuff. I have shelves full and am running out of room for my crafts. I do love my Nebraska Huskers.

I am Wanda, 66, wife of 1 "GREAT" grandpa (will be married 48 years next month);mother of 4; grandmother of 22 (ages 23 - 4 months), great grandmother of 2 (one 2 yrs other almost 1) & 7/9ths.Just outside of Dallas in Grand Prairie. I love to crochet. In process of crocheting twin sized afghans for grandchildren for birthdays & graduations this year. I also like to make stuffed animals for the younger ones. I have done a lot of crocheting for charity. I love making things for people (but I would rather give it in a manner that the one receiving doesn't know I am the one doing the giving.) Does that make sense?

My husband and I are both disabled. I have been in a wheelchair for 6 years, but that doesn't stop me from much. We don't have the means to travel much, but I like my neck of the world and am content to stay put--for now!

Like to visit with other crocheters, belong to the crochet group at my local senior citizens center. On Friday, some of the ladies who crochet come to my house for about 4 hours. I love it!

Re: Lets have some fun... Getting to know everyone on here -- Jan C, 04:01:46 04/30/09 Thu [1]

I can definitely echo all the feelings written so far about this board - marvelous place to visit!

I am Jan C and I live in Seattle, WA in the same house for 32 years. It is filled with crafts from attic to basement. I knit, crochet, paper craft, decorate envelopes (a club I belong to and exchange), and just about every craft available. Some only a little and now mostly crochet due to disability and having to sit most of the time. I used to do a lot of music activities and lots of dancing. I really miss those times. I have one son - deaf and living at home and helps me immensely. I have a couple of gals who adopted me as second mom and I am grandma to their kids. I do have some grandchildren in California but have not been allowed to see the families. Probably could not travel that far now anyway but still think of them. I do still keep as active as possible and enjoy a little time on the computer. It is so great having the family we have on this board and all that is shared. Oh, forgot (old age? LOL) I am soon to be 72 and my son is 45. Guess that is enough information for now. Keep up all the good work, gals.

I am Ginny, SAHM (stay at home Mom) for 4 wonderful children. 3 girls ages 13 (14 this Sunday), 9 and 9 months and one little man who is 11. I am 35, and was attending college to become a teacher. Started when my 9 year old entered kindergarten and with 3 semesters left to graduation we found out about baby 4, so that is on hold for a while. I enjoy crochet, polymer clay, and cross stitch, but I also bead, knit, quilt, papercraft and just about anything else. Like Amber, I can't paint anything but a wall or paint by numbers and I also tend to collect clutter. But I am getting better at finding it a home other than my own. I live in WV smack in the middle of Charleston and Huntington. I recently started a blog and am really liking it. I share some of my patterns and ideas. I hope one day to publish one of my patterns, but who know what God has in store for me. I just sit back and follow where He leads. Nice to meet everyone!

Hello,
My name is Jane and I live in Central Wisconsin. I'm 45 years old and have been married to my wonderful husband for 26 years. We have 3 children. The oldest is married and has 2 daughters, our middle child is getting married this October and our only son is a junior in high school. We live in a small community so my crafting experiences are limited. No Michael's, Joanne's, or Hobby Lobby here. I enjoy my flower garden, craft sales, garage sales, and stamping. I do enjoy making homemade crafts and sharing them with my family and friends. I think this board is wonderful. I hope to get a little more involved in the future. Thanks for the invite to share a little bit about myself. I find this very interesting to find out where everyone is from ~ and I didn't know the Crafty Sue & Doreen are sisters! Awesome!

GREAT idea, Penny!
Hi! I am Marcia and I am from Washington state. I am 58 years young. I have 5 wonderful grown children, and 15 SOON to be 16 grandchildren! I do work outside the home fulltime but am seeking employment at the moment. I REALLY enjoy crafts!!!! My mom, who did not consider herself crafty, really did get me started... she always encouraged me to make May baskets every year and let me go with them.... I was sewing (on a treadle machine) by the time I was second grade! Sewing and crocheting are my first loves, then paper crafts and anything I see that looks like fun to me !! I love to craft!!!! My craft room shows that! lol I have made some wonderful friends on this craft board and REALLY appreciate Calico (Val) for introducing me to this board. Everyone is so talented and so willing to help! Not just in the crafting part of our lives but in every aspect of our lives. The friends here REALLY care and shoe it in many ways.

(in alot of water this week..LOL) We don't have any of our own children biologically but just won custody of our 4 year old niece after 2 years of fighting for her. I love a wide variety of crafts but plastic canvas will always be my favorite but since walmart quit with the craft department I have had to slow down on it. This week me and my neice have been making wishing wells out of popsicle sticks and planting moss rose to go in them for mothers day for everyone. We just purchased our own home so now in the middle of living in it while remodeling, plain and simple it sucks.

Re: Lets have some fun... Getting to know everyone on here -- Jude_KS, 02:37:39 05/03/09 Sun [1]

Hello Everyone,
My name is Jude, I live in Scott City,KS ( a small town in the west central part of the state),
I'm 62 years old, married to the same guy (Larry)for almost
38 years and have no children.

We are the proud parents of two fur-babies - Minnie and Mickey - Miniature Schnauzers
(almost 2 years old) and total spoiled brats! lol

I love sewing especially applique on clothing and
quilting. I also enjoy gardening very much. This is
the first full summer in our new home and I am loving
every minute of it.

Larry and I both enjoy photography and canning.
He makes the most awesome BBQ sauce and salsa.

Due to some severe health concerns I cannot do
as much of my hobbies as before but I never let a day pass
without doing something that I truly love....

My favorite colors are: Yellow, denim blue, red and black
I collect: Wind chimes, teddy bears, French Chefs and fabric!

Hi all, I am Donna B, 77yrs old, born in UP of MI, moved to NM, then 30 yrs. in CO, now in WV. I had 5 children, one now deceased. As of right now, have 11 grands and 3 greatgrands. I don't think there is a craft that I have missed, but now mostly knit, crochet and quilt. Have two paintings on the easel that I started 4 yrs. ago. Someday! Love WV and all the beauty that surrounds me and the wildlife that strolls through my yard. I have a pinched nerve in my lumbar region and that curtails my activity to a great extent, but Life Is Good!

Re: Lets have some fun... Getting to know everyone on here -- KrafteeKaren, 10:43:40 05/03/09 Sun [1]

Well I guess I had better post on this before you all start screaming at me, lol. I'm the crazy lady that keeps this board going...not really I'm just the one that gets rid of the critters that like to post their crap.
I'm 50 plus years old, wife of a "normal" man that doesn't listen for almost 35 years, daughter to a 83 year old man that is about to drive me totally nuts, mother of 3 (31, 29 and 1, Gammie of Allison and in October will be Gammie to possibly either Danielle or Dani (not sure which name yet...even though it is a girl).
I am owner/moderator of this board, have been for 6 years now after a wonderful lady, Shirley T. asked if I would take it over. Our agreement was when she wanted it back then she was more than welcome to it. Sadly Shirley passed away so guess you all are stuck with me, lol.
We live in Kansas and have for many years, although one day I would love to be able to travel. I enjoy all type of crafts but never learned how to knit. A few years ago I went back to college and earned a degree in Web Graphics...the degree and 50 cents will get me a phone call, lol, because I need more education to actually get a job. Taking care of Allison and Danielle/Dani are more important than a job right now. I tinker with printables and put up a site a while back with help from some friends...getting ready to re-do it in the next month, hopefully.
Well I think that is about all that is going on in my life.
Hugs

Re: Lets have some fun... Getting to know everyone on here -- Shirttails, 11:55:29 05/03/09 Sun [1]

Hi, I'm Shirttails and I live in two states, but mainly in Arkansas. I have a home in Illinois, but I visit it less and less. I never married, taught school for 33 years ( 8 and 9 year olds), retired early, and now am enjoying crafting and lots of volunteer work. I love plastic canvas (have done it for many years), and want to learn more about computers so I can do graphics. I have been so fortunate to find friends here who help out when I get a brainstorm. I learned to crochet since retirement and have made some small things. I found myself in a beginners quilting class and joined the guild 2 years ago. I'm almost finished with my first quilt top. It was fun, time consuming, and took up lots of space on the living room floor until I sewed the pieces together. Good thing there are no pets around, or I would have spent time moving pieces of fabric. I enjoy watching the various birds from my porch when I have the time to sit. So glad to have found so many nice cyberfriends here at Voy.

One was stillborn and I have a wonderful 19 year old son and a beautiful 15 year old daughter. My son is a senior and going to graduate in a few weeks. My daughter is a freshman who is now trying to obtain her driving permit. I work full time for the school board. My children was my life. I think that is why God chose me to be a mom.

I love to fresh water fish when I go home to MS. I lost my stepfather on Christmas Eve this past year and I have a HUGE hole in my heart. He was a wonderful man that I love dearly. A great friend to me. My mom is my best friend though and I love her so. She is JUST THE VERY BEST MOM EVER!

I love anything with Santas, snowmen and Bambi. yes Bambi. I just love that little guy.

I visit almost daily and greatly enjoy the people and ideas on this forum. I don't craft a lot any more since I moved to WV from CO, mainly, I don't know where anything is anymore. Mostly, I quilt nowadays and I know where my fabic is...every spare inch of space. For a retired person, I am kept very busy, I wonder how I found time to work. I have 11 grandchildren, 6 of which are here in WV, and 3 great grands. So, I sew. My oldest daughter is just over the mountains in VA. She is responsible for my fabric addiction and quilting.

Doreen aren't you just the sweetest person. I love it that people do come to see what the ladies are all doing here. Debbie, Dixiecup, Marci, Teresa, and Donna we are glad you all do stop by and would like to tell you Hi. Bev I have seen you around. Teresa Saying a prayer for you. My DD had cancer and it is one that can return they say and I know the second time would have to be really bad. Anything I can do just let me know. Welcome to all.

I have't posted for ages and it's a shame because this is my favorite site. I recently lost my mom and I've been trying to deal with everything that's going on. I know I'll be back and all of you wonderful ladies will still be here.

[> Re: OT ~ For those who have not posted in a while and all browsers... -- Happily Retired, 13:05:28 04/29/09 Wed [1]

Hi Thanks for this site. I check it everyday. I've noticed that the other forums I check have just about come to a halt. Guess everyone's crazy busy with spring things.
Keep up the good work!!

Doreen you've had a brilliant idea with this post.
It is so nice of you to think of all the invisible browsers and the others that have strayed a little from posting on the Voy... I see you've been answered already.
Way to go girl!
Hugs to all,
Susan.

Hi Doreen :) I do not post here as often as I would like, but I do visit almost every day. I've come here for years, but am probably like a newcomer to some :)

I love visiting your blog also, but have not been able the past few days because the motherboard went on my computer. It's fixed now and I'm back up and running so will go board hopping today :)

[> Re: OT ~ For those who have not posted in a while and all browsers... -- Faye, 14:32:50 04/29/09 Wed [1]

I check in several times daily. I really enjoy seeing what others are doing. I have been having health issues and don't get to do many things.

[> Re: OT ~ For those who have not posted in a while and all browsers... -- Debbie in Va, 14:34:04 04/29/09 Wed [1]

Hi everyone,
I do love this site! I don't post much but do come here almost every day and love to read all the new ideas all of you come up with! Love all the individual stories, too. I don't craft that much anymore but try a thing or two every once in awhile. I share your feelings with all the ups and downs of all of you and think about you always. Keep up your good work and know that others are thinking about you! Keep on posting and thanks to everyone! I even share some of your ideas with others.
Hugs to all.

I have been coming here from day one, I used to live in Utah but live in Arizona for the past 2 years. Did not have the internet while we built the house but now I am back on and come daily to lurk around. I used to do the recipe swaps, probably will do that again now that I am getting settled. Joan

Hi Doreen,
thanks for asking about everyone, I haven't been on here in a while, my husband has had a bloodclot and has been in the hospital, so we have been going back and forth since he got out for coumidin levels and my 12 yr old is being tested for diabetes, also please say a prayer for me this week as next Tuesday i have to have tests done I have not told any of my family except my husband (my daddy died with stomach cancer so I figure we will wait and see) if there is a problem we will cross that bridge when we get to it.

thanks for all you all do you girls are GREAT

Hi Doreen and Everyone...It seems like it's been forever since I've been here.
Life has been very, very busy for me...thought I'd take a few minutes this evening to see what's going on with the Voy Ladies... I have missed all of you !
I'll try to get back here more often and do better at posting.
Take Care Everyone,
Sondra

[> Re: OT ~ For those who have not posted in a while and all browsers... -- Doreen, 03:07:10 04/30/09 Thu [1]

Oh WOW how lovely to see so many of you posting again...I had a feeling most of you still visited. Thanks for your kind and sweet comments...you have been missed and I am sure I speak on behalf of many when I say that.
It is wonderful that you have connected again and I just want to add that I have you all in my prayers especially those who are most in need.
I look forward to 'seeing' you posting more often and hope others who have been MIA will post too : )
Hugs and Blessings,
Doreen

I moved to the white mountains, I take tons of sunset photos and sunrise. I am going to make a calendar, for all my Utah friends. I could buy one but I want to take photos of what I see, when we drive down to the valley we go through Payson and I take photos of all the cactus. Love the weather and the skies. They are the best.

Hi Everyone,
I'd love to check this site everyday, but my schedule ust doesn't allow it. Sometimes like today I sneek a peek during my break. I drop in just to see what's going on and sometimes ask for help which I appreciate very much. Everyone is so willing to share information, advice, creative crafts and poems. Thank you all for being here.

I get so much from this forum--great ideas, some that I actually get around to trying. Like I tell my friends, I seldom have an original idea--most of them come from the wonderful ladies at the "craft website". THanks for all the sharing.

Doreen, this is my very favorite site to read every day. I have done many crafts over the years,but my favorite is artificial floral arranging. I have COPD, and not able to go to my craft house often. I do the simple ones that I can do inside the house. I recently learned to knit a little, and made several pairs of the fuzzy flip-flops. I also made several spoon angels. Last Christmas I made the stick angel pins. I don't feel that I contribute much, just a 'copy cat'. Thanks to all who give me these ideas.Sue B

Hi everyone this is a great post. I have been guilty of browsing and not posting lately too. I have not been doing many crafts since I discovered cake decorating, but love to find new ideas for later. Since my son passed away last year I just haven't wanted to do a lot of stuff. I need to get back into it though, since I have 2 rooms full of supplies.LOL

I just lost all of my bookmarks during the cleansing time of getting rid of a trojan. I had to have my computer's hard drive erased and reinstalled. This is the ONE place that I remembered the address. I'm a crafter with my church group, and we often visit here and share with you all. I love this site, and I would be safe in saying it is my favorite site and I have been web surfing for over ten years! I'm also known as Dixiedarlin' . Betty/Gardenbabe

With a full time job and trying to get a business off the ground, I just don't have a whole lot of time to spend posting to the net. I try to check in with you wonderful people on the weekends, but that is really hard some weeks. Love to read and see what everyone is up to. This is one group of very talented ladies. Thanks for allowing me to just look at what you do.

My favorite place to visit too. I don't post much either but enjoy your company every morning . I live in Eastern Washington and the snow has finally melted and tulips are begining to bloom, this is a great place to visit, everyone helps if you need it or encourages you, and last but by no means least they have a prayer for you.

Nice post, Doreen.
I regret that I have not been on much lately either.
I used to be here every single day.
Got so busy with family things like hubby being away, a new grandson, a daughters wedding this Saturday, plus work.
I hope to have more time very soon, because I love this place and all the sweet ladies who are so creative, and always share with everyone.
Bless you all.

Hi, everyone. I have not posted in awhile because I gained 42 more hours a month at work. Come home and usually in bed by 830pm. Just can not get use to so many more hours. I am now the 1st. person under the activity director so when she is not there, I need to take her place. Come home and need to get all craft projects ready for the next day. I will try harder to post more often. JAN E
