I've been an artist and have loved nature for as long as I can remember... Should I contiunue down memory lane?
When I was 12 I painted a few oil paintings with Bob Ross. My highschool art teacher asked to see my oil paintings when I told him I painted oil paintings. He looked at them and said, "They look like Bob Ross paintings." And I said, "I know I painted Bob Ross paintings." I also liked to draw, write poetry, make friendship bracelets, and take pictures. I found a small interest for how books were made from the show Reading Rainbow. I've been making my own journals throughout the years ever since then.
While staying home with my children I learned how to play the guitar, embroider and crochet. I also figured out a little about web design and how to draw digitally. I went to an art college for a short time while my children were in school. That is when I discovered a renewed love for book making and journaling.
At the house we used to live in we began to find 4-leaf clovers! I wanted desperately to know how to save them so I spent many years experimenting with many different ways to preserve them to wear and for keepsakes.
