Adopted: November 10th, 2004 [best decision I've ever made]
Pet names: He has quite a lot of them [too many to list!], but among them are Bumble, Huh-Roh, Momo, Sweet Cheeks, Sweetness, Precious and Cloud Puff. :o)
Proof that he has a heart of gold: Humble is very gentle with bugs. If we ever see one in our home, he'll try to pet and play with the bug rather than kill him. He's tenderhearted. :o)
A dream of mine: To move us into a Tumbleweed tiny house. My dream home is the Cypress 24. IN. LOVE. WITH. IT.
Prefers: the company of animals and a simple life
My crafting: I've tried and loved many different kinds of crafts throughout my life. In May 2009, I jumped into card making with both feet, and now paper crafting in different forms has become my 'longest lasting craft'. I was actually interested in stamping long before card making came along -- I would stamp in my journals and on snail mail as a kid. Before card making, I was really into hand-carving stamps [I would stamp in my journals and make ATCs], and my favourite stamp of all is one that I carved of my Humble cartoon. :o)
Some of the crafts I was into before paper crafting took over were embroidery, woodburning and jewelry making. I used to have a little web shop where I sold handmade jewelry and vintage finds. :o) I really like hand-sewing things, and even though I don't work on embroidery projects like I used to, I love including hand-stitching on my cards and other paper crafts.
I've recently gone back to carving stamps/linocuts, and I'm in love with it all over again! It just wakes me up. I hope that with enough practice, I can one day consider myself a printmaker.
