List #27: Arts & Crafts I've Tried

Serging baby wipes in my crammed-full sewing room.

actually using a pacifier, by the way. He was not a fan. 
Wow, we're halfway through the one year of lists! I thought this might be difficult to think of 52 things to make lists of, but apparently I'm not lacking for inspiration. They just keep coming to me. :)

When I think back, waaaay back, thoughout my creative career, I've tried a lot of things. With varying levels of success. Though I still have the gear to do nearly all of the following arts--my sewing room is idiotically crammed with stuff--I just don't have time in my life to do as many as I'd like to these days.

Here's my list of what I can remember:
  1. sewing, embroidery, cross-stitch
  2. clothing & costume design
  3. printmaking: screen printing, potato printing, intaglio, lino cuts, making my own stamps
  4. shrinky dinks
  5. jewellery making: macrame & friendship bracelets, earrings, bead looming (is that even a verb?)
  6. painting on canvas, walls, paper, glasses, clothing & bodies
  7. scrapbooking
  8. making greeting cards
  9. fabric dyeing
  10. collage & paper making
  11. writing (bad) poetry 
  12. paper lantern making
  13. sculpture & pottery
  14. dreamcatchers
  15. doll & stuffed animal making
  16. weaving, crochet & knitting
  17. photography
  18. drawing
  19. woodworking (mostly furniture), wood burning, wood carving
  20. stilt walking & performance art

Why Monday lists? Reading the lovely Chloe's blog, Tea Swamp Park, I found an idea I had to 'steal': a list of all her Halloween costumes, with quite a few photos. She got the idea from Hula Seventy's List Project. I've decided to do the weekly lists for a year that Hula Seventy is doing.
