Tasha Woodmansee, Carterville, MO, US

Eccentric, omni-artist (plays with everything), married to a musician (drummer), almost 12 yrs. We are a child-free couple with 3 cats (Ari, Max, Kane) 2 dogs (Potter, Moxie) & 2 cockatiels (Kosmo, Lil). Everyone is a rescue except Lil.

Im disabled (fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, myofascial pain disorder), but still work part-time for several Drs. So I do have issues with healthy people living on my tax money.

I really enjoy most things creative & love to just play. It took me a while to get past the it must be perfect stage and just let myself go and have fun with it.

Painting themes range from landscapes to strange creatures that only exist in my head. Crochet is still very simple (scarves & such) as I am learning. Clothing is what I call Girly Goth, example a plaid miniskirt w/ safety pins, grosgrain ribbon ruffle & lace. Jewelry is classic to funky.

I love to bargain shop! Most of my clothing is 2nd hand, all the better to alter. I have no problem cutting into a blouse from Spiegel that I only paid $2 for.

Re: How to Make Snuggly Slippers from Old Sweaters

Way cute! I wonder how useing a shoe insert would work for the sole? Sandwich it between the sweater and suede sole? It would give some support for the foot. Also, make the sole out of that no skid, rubbery shelf liner? Or use the bottoms from those ugly no skid socks the hospitals give to patients? Could even cut out shapes, how cute would paw prints be?

Re: How to Make Sweater Dog Toys

Oh, I'm so glad Gracie has a good home now, she looks happy! All my "kids" are rescues, all 7, 3 cats, 2 dogs, 2 cockatiels.

I may change the shape, stuff it with catnip.

Re: How to Make a Pet Bed from Recycled Sweaters

What a cool idea! It would be a perfect item to donate in an animal fundraiser auction or a no kill shelter. I will be making these.

Re: How to Restyle a T-Shirt With Pin Tucks

Awesome idea & great directions! I'm working with an old burgandy sweatshirt right now. I was painting a fence & 1 of the "girls" brushed against the white paint. Not a good look, btw.

My experiment is taking safety pins & basting to create a rouching effect, take spray paint to it, remove pins and thread & hopefully get a funky tie dye type result. Cross fingers for me!
