So, recently thanks to a stock competition on DA I have discovered Tatting, an old method of making lace using a shuttle or a needle, thanks to these tutorials
And so I've decided to showcase this wonderful form of art:

what does dA mean to me?so, this is probably going to turn out to be a weird rambling brainfart or something, but i'm just gonna sit here and type and see what happens.what does dA mean to me? by smallbluemonkey
it's been a long time since i've done something like this... things happened, water flowed, life changed... then i was prompted to write my favourite moment on dA for . well, that's easy, i thought... i know exactly what that is, and this is what i will write:
my favourite (and proudest) moment on dA is finding out that :iconmagical525: got a dd for . i've encouraged her to do more and believe in her abilities, and we've been watching her gallery stats grow together over the months. i was with her when she started that project and enjoyed the development. her joy and excitement when it was unexpectedly picked as a dd was just amazing
but then i realised that would just be the peak of the mountain, so many things have made an impression on me...
the amazing artworks and photos displayed
Things I like or think are really cool I set it to random so that every artwork stands a chance of being seen rather than just the ones I added most recently. Every one of them deserves to be seen more than once on my profile
What to tell about myself... I'm cheerful and creative - when I'm in the right mood I create more than I can keep up with so it's always a challenge to finish what I start as I have so many idea's. I don't let stuff like not knowing how to do something stop me from actually doing it - I may not do it "right" in the end but I do get it done!
I'm a mother of 2 boys who are (fortunately) not yet teenagers but are a pair of monkeys who keep me on my toes
About saying thanks to favs etc.
I had to make a choice between spending a load of time thanking people for favouriting my art - which always brings a smile to my face and a warm fuzzy feeling in my heart - or making more art.
I chose to stop thanking people personally for the favourites but I do still give everyone who favourites me for the first time a llama badge as a little thank you for doing so I hope that nobody feels less appreciated for it but well.. someone stole my time machine If you need more inspiration as to why I chose this watch this: player.vimeo.com/video/4237276… It's good advice for anyone who creates art
Do I sell my work?
Sometimes - Not everything I make is for sale but I don't usually mark anything as "for sale" so If you are interested in something I've made feel free to note me. I only accept reasonable offers as making things by hand takes time and materials cost real money, so expect to pay more for a one off item than you would for that mass produced knick-knack you saw in a shop.
