I've been crafting since I was a wee little girl and over the years I have tried all sorts of different crafts. Cross-stitching, altered books, crochet, lampwork beads, jewelry, bookbinding...some I've done well, some I was awful at and mostly I did adequately but never really enjoyed it in the end. As I'm nearing my 33rd (eep!) birthday, I think I've finally found my artistic calling - perler bead portraiture. Here is my first masterpiece:
I am in love with my own work. Mr. T pities the fool. Yeah. He's big, too. Huge. A good two feet high, if not more. The best part is that I'm making patterns (using cross-stitch software) for more portraits. 70s Elvis is up next!
