Hello, everyone! ^_^
Hopefully we'll be able to get everything picked back up soon, as this community looks much more promising than many others that I've looked at. Anywho, I'm Jackalibis (jackalibis
), though this is my creativity/crafting journal. ^_~
I pretty much do it all. Crochet, knitting, altered books, scrapbooking, quilting (very badly...), altered clothing, costuming, doll making, writing, poetry, photography, LJ icons, web banners, colorbars, blah blah blah... Yeah, I could go on and on if I really wanted to. Anywho, as to who I am.
I'm 23, married, and mother of a four-year-old. I'm a stay-at-home mom for the time being, and enjoy a wide variety of hobbies from crafting to role-playing games to reading and writing. I fully intend on returning to school soon to get my English major, and may possibily take up the job offer at the local library once my son starts school next year.
I'm a member of Ravelry, Crochet Me, and Craftster, all of which you can find me there as Jackalibis. I've only recently starting connecting with other crafting communities online, so if I'm not very active on there yet, that's because I've been busy trying to build up stuff on another site. That's the trouble with having been without internet for the duration of the time that you had completely stopped crafting, and then you get the internet back and decide to start up again.
Right now, I'm crocheting an amigurimi Cthulhu (pattern here
) for my hubby. I just finished the head last night, and after discovering that I had lost count of my stitches, had to rip what body I had already done and had to start over on that part. I'll get pictures of it up on my own journal soon and post a notice here, or you can find the pictures on Flickr (jackalibis) or Photobucket (wickedcreations_lj).
I'm also working on a crocheted afgan for my grandmother (who is making me a quilt at the same time *lol*) and knitting myself a pair of fingerless gloves. I haven't had the materials to do much other than yarn crafts at the moment (working from my stash), so other crafts aren't going to be very active for me at the moment, but when they become so, I'll keep it updated. ^_^
