I Make Stuff.....

~* Altered Canvas, made 3.6.09 as a "craft room-warming" gift for a friend! *~

I make stuff. I love to make stuff. I especially love to make stuff with paper and ink and stamps and paint. As this post shows, I have an entire room dedicated to the stuff I use to make, well, stuff. It is my art. It is how I create. I know there are some that would look on my art with their nose in the air thinking that the stuff I make could never qualify as art. And hey, let's face it, what I am creating is not necessarily museum worthy or anything. I don't care. I just like to make stuff. I am not happy unless I am able to create something nearly every day, no matter how small. It doesn't even matter if I finish. If I can look down and see my fingers smudged with a bit of ink or paint then I have gone to my happy place that day!
