Part time each Artist/Housewife

Who or what inspires you to create?

Describe your work space.
I have moved and had many spaces over the years. At the present, I have a dedicated room in my house for extreme crafting- 3 sewing machines, Dremel set, bins of fabrics and projects, hand tools. The larger tools (drill press, sander) are in the next room, which is also the garage. The electronics toolkit has migrated upstairs into the office to be closer to the computers.

Read, ride my bicycle, cook, mix fancy cocktails

What is your favorite handmade item, made by you or given to you?
I have a killer wooden carving of a buzzard that I purchased at a roadside stand in Jamaica in 1971.

What does being an Amy mean to you?
I am beloved! And a good friend to many.
