I love to make things - I've been crocheting for over 25 years and doing bead work for over 7 years - and I decided it was time to do something with all my creations besides keeping them in bags in the closet! All of my items are my own original designs and patterns.
I've dabbled in web site and graphic design and digital art for about 15 years, moderating at a large artists' site and even being featured in their magazine and compilation DVD. I can't draw a recognizable stick figure with pencil and paper, lol, but with my graphics programs my imagination has free rein. All of my designs are my own, made with images created by me, or to which I have the rights, and I retain copyright to all of my images here. Copyright is a passion of mine - I respect others' rights and hope that you will respect mine.
Please check out my "all-handmade" shop - Aphrodite's Attique at Craft Cafe, and visit often - I have many, many ideas and will be adding new items and categories frequently! Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or comments, or if you're interested in made-to-order or custom-made items.
You can also visit my non-handcraft "sister store" at CafePress - SweetDreams Digital - apparel, gifts, and more for all ages, featuring my original artwork and photography!
