    In the 60's, people took acid to make the world weird. Now the world is
    weird and people take Prozac to make it normal.

      In the spirit of Crazy Horse...

      sometimes you have to live life as if what everyone else thinks does not matter, but is still a factor...
      that even though you think you are so lost, you may be found...
      no matter what comes in your life, it will be over come...
      and that the real reason that you live is for love, and finding inner peace...
      live free for what its worth an never let life hold you back from living
      One person can make a difference----lets all of us give it a try.--- john f. Kennedy

      other places u can find me...

              I'm not going to vote for myself... heck I don't even know how I got nominated..LOL... but it's hard to choose between the other two. If I vote on this I'll probably just flip a coin to figure it out because B2W and Walela both rock. I think Bum or Beadman shoulda been up there before me though... both of them are working it hard and cranking out the good stuff.

                              I understand that feeling BlackBear - "Crafter of the Year" is a BIG category. I would think it would cover stuff like making bustles and roaches as well as beading and clothwork. Maybe even bring in some of the "other crafts" like flute making, basketry or (our favorite topic) FOOD.

                              For those of you who don't know me yet - I'm Patrick AKA B2W AKA between2worlds AKA The Mad Budgie. Lot's of AKA's there

                              I'm strictly an amatuer on all the things that I do. I define someone who sells what they make as a professional and I haven't sold anything that I've made so I'm definitely NOT a professional. I have given away hordes of stuff - for me the reward comes from the making of things and helping other people out.

                              Crafts that I do include beading (mostly double needle applique, although I do some loom work too), basketry (split black ash and coiled grass - right now I'm messing around with pine needles as a basket making material), sewing (by hand - I make my own patterns and can do enough embroidery to finish the edges of cloth applique) and cooking.

                              My favorite cooking is making food whose ingrediants come from forest and field. It is the cooking I learned from my Gramma and Grampa when we lived out in the middle of nowhere. I've put some of that sort of thing into writing here on the forums - like how to make acorn flour or all the food that you can make from different parts of cattails in different seasons.

                              My interest in plants has allowed me to hook some pw.commers up with collectors of various kinds of seeds and other plant materials that can be used in making outfits.

                              Bum or Beadman shoulda been included too, I think. Blackbear does some awesome beadwork and walela makes purty sequin sets. Not an easy decision - who to vote for so I'll just say this: VOTE!
