What a wonderful group. Really happy to join. My name is Robin Cook, and I publish a good news blog, called Finally Good News - www.finallygoodnews.net. I believe that by sharing good and positive new from around the world I have the opportunity to put a smile on someone's face, and that gives me all the inspiration I need :)
I am so grateful to find this group and I think its great! :-) I also created a website where people can become a part of a movement to spread positive thinking and to help create a shared vision of unity. Check it out. :-) www.chamillahmovement.com
Wishing You a Happy New Year!
P. S. Will attach the link so you can sing along to the last song I recorded a day or so ago. very short:)
I enjoy crafting anything that I can think of to craft. I enjoy crocheting (although, this is becoming more and more difficult as I have RA), painting (I paint in any and all media), paint by number kits, buying used and dinged up furniture at the Goodwill so that I can refinish it in many different ways, sewing, reusing old “junk” by refinishing it or reshaping it to use in my garden, making my own various holiday decorations, and many other things. I also used to bead jewelry but my RA has stopped that activity. : (
I find that crafting is the best stress reliever and away of just relaxing. It has also helped me deal with my Obsessive Compulsive Disorder in that with handmade crafts I have had to overcome my issues with perfectionism.
Hi my name is Connie (my friends call me Jewels), and I LOVE everything about crafting and art. I think I've made just about every craft, in the past 44 years. I also have an online art/craft magazine. In the last year I've become sort of a Computer Geek, before that I wouldn't even touch the computer or any electronics (iPods, Laptops, etc...), now I can't seem to get enough:-) Anyway, I'm glad I found this site and this group. I'm looking forward to both:-)

People seemingly are in too much of a hurry ,to slow down.The more tech knowleage we have,to make things simple,we create things to do.
Hi! I have been a member here for awhile. I like do alot of different crafts. I like to go to the Thrift Stores and find things to inspire me. If you look up above ^ under the "Group Forums" at "Craft Challeng-floral, April 15, 2009, you can see a couple of things that I like to do.
