I love looking through what you all have made! Inspiring!
As for me, I make so many things already, I really don’t “need” another super awesome tool like a laser cutter…but, I make so many things already, I need a super awesome tool like a laser cutter to see what else I can make! Yep, that’s how my reasoning works! neeed laaaser maaachiiine. * wipes drool off her chin *
I am not a master of anything yet, but know a little about a lot. I melt scrap silver and gold down and make my own wire and sheet, and turn it into jewelry…
I love paper and play with it a lot, from screenprinting, letterpressing, and scrapbooking, to awesome 3d stuff…like this cute, but pretty useless paper camper…
And these (mostly) letterpressed cards…
I have a vinyl cutter and play with that a lot. Besides decals, I make pretty rad signs from old cabinet doors and windows.
I am part hippie and love natural stuff, so I made my own lip balms and skin salves, one salve in particular turned out really good and heals all sorts of skin ailments! My dad said it’s the only stuff he’s found to clear up his psoriasis, and I just had a lady contact me looking for more 'cause it’s been clearing up some follicular cysts that she had, and the doctors told her there was nothing they could do to help. Yay for nature!
The newest obsession I have is fiber. I have been spinning yarn…which includes taking my wheel apart, cleaning and painting it, washing raw wool, dying it, making art batts, and spinning it. Since I got all of this awesome handspun yarn, and no shows to sell it at, I figured I should learn how to make something with it, so I learned how to weave, and I’m learning how to crochet.
When I have the time, I also enjoy woodworking and upcycling all sorts of things.
^^ That was made by three of us, in about 8 hours, for a local fundraiser, called “Spontaneous Construction” for the Home Resource here in Missoula.
If you want to look through more photos of what I’ve made, the best place is on Facebook. I recently opened a shop and now sell on Etsy!
Anyways, hope this didn’t turn out too long, I can’t tell in these little boxes.
And keep the photos coming guys, I love looking through them! If you sell online, post links too…might do a little gift shopping!
