Journal
Holiday Card Project 2012

It's back!  With the goal of bringing a little cheer to patients in the hospital during the holiday season, the deviantART Holiday Card Project connects deviants from around the world and applies their tremendous artistic abilities in designing and creating uplifting holiday cards.
In past years, the Project has received more than 5,000 cards sent in by more than 1,000 deviants from 50 different countries/political regions. Cards were then divvied up and distributed in-person by deviantART members to local Los Angeles, CA hospitals, with additional cards given to various hospitals in the U.S. and abroad for hospital staff members to hand out to patients.
The idea behind the Holiday Card Project is simple: do something nice for others. However, if you're looking for even more incentive, every deviant who submits a card will be given a free one-month Premium Membership to deviantA

Artist | Professional | Artisan Crafts
United States
I am a seamstress mostly self taught and trained by my mom. She was a quilter. She is still with us but sadly her eyesight has faded and she can not finish the 100 quilt tops she has cut out over the years.

I did spend some time in Theater Costuming and learned many skills. But most of my knowledge is self taught and through others in the craft. I learned a long time-ago there are no wrong questions, except for those you did not ask out-loud.

My advice to beginners and Novices ask, read, research all you can, and in the end Play with the knowledge you obtained, the end results might surprise you.

In my spare time I enjoy Playing D&D and reenactment games such as NERO, Amtgard, SCA

I am a mother first, to two kids. I am a Wife second, to a loving and artistic husband, who has also spent many years in theater classes. And Last I am a shop owner to a small online business, where I sell my wears and handmade goods. I also teach pagan studies on the side, twice a month.

I Live in a small town in East Texas, life can be interesting here at times ;)

May you all be crafty and find inspiration in everything around you.

Keep up with our Projects as we work on them at our Blog:

Points: If you wish to give points for trades we can do that!

I have been busy prepping for my first convention booth and convention. If you are in the East Texas area make sure to drop by the event this summer. Its our first event being held at Nacagdoches County, I sure hope we get a good turn out. Would be awesome to be able to meet some folks.
Event link on facebook with website address for the event: www.facebook.com/events/162551…
Even if you cant make it would be nice if you can help at least spread the word about it!

Thanks everyone wish me luck!
