And a new obsession is born…

Well, maybe not entirely new. I’ve done ‘crafty’ things for as long as I can remember – I think I was 5 or so when I learned to crochet, which is the first artsy-craftsy thing I remember doing (other than kindergarten art projects that involved construction paper, glue, and glitter). Over the years, I’ve crocheted my way through thousands of miles of yarn. Cross-stitch, counted cross-stitch, embroidery, needlepoint, crewel, rug hooking – you name it, I’ve probably tried it.

But to skip a little of my craft-life history, I’ve recently become fascinated by the whole altered art/found art sort of thing. It appeals to my slightly hoarder-ish habit of saving things because you just never know when you might need them. And since I have somewhere right around little to no talent for drawing or painting, well… Anyway, I found myself a few little groups and decided to dive in with a Wild West themed tag swap. I think some of them turned out pretty well.

    I love these…so pretty, and what a great idea. I can’t paint or draw either, but love art. I may have to give it a go!

    Go for it! They’re tons of fun, and working on such a small scale seems so much less intimidating. :)
