Hello Blogland!


I'm crossing my fingers and jumping in; I hope the water is fine. I've been toying with the idea of a craft blog for ages but I have always chickened out, deciding I wasn't ready. I've finally realized I will never be ready, so I should just plunge in. I've been most concerned about my photos, but they will just have to suffice until I learn how to take better pictures.My second problem is that I WANT TO MAKE EVERYTHING! I've been worried that I need more of a focus, and a favorite color pallette to create an image, but that's not going to happen anytime soon. So you will just have to see everything I dabble in and maybe help me decide along the way! Watercolor has always been my favorite medium, but lately I've been playing with embroidery and felt. Since my banner is a watercolor I thought I'd start my first post with embroidery (again, apologies for the pic quality). Oh, and you will see alot of birds in my work, that influence comes from my mom and dad.

way to go Alicia, get your stuff out there!! You do beautiful work, keep it coming. Don't worry about your picture taking it looks just fine. Seems to me there are some of you pictures hanging in homes across the country already, there will be more.

Looks great, and I think it's awesome that your parents influenced your interest in birds.
