My Artsy Side

Writing is my primary craft but I enjoy dabbling in other arts as well. I enjoy mixed media art using crochet, collage art and scrapbooking.

Collage Scrap Exchange Project, 2015


I have an ongoing series that I’ve been working on for several years called My Dangerous Life


I frequently work on collage pieces, which I sometimes post on my personal blog Diary of a Smart Chick


Every year I do a gingerbread house making party at my place for Christmas and try to create something original. What I made here is a two-unit live-work space with living roofs, a community garden and a heart-shaped meditation pond surrounded by meditating gummy bears.
