I just saw the neatest thing over on Craftstylish! For some time now, I've loved the loom flowers of the 1960s and 1970s (see cathy of california here: http://cathyofcalifornia.typepad.com/ for numerous posts on this really cool craft). Today on Craftstylish, there is a post on the many uses of the ubiquitous VHS tape in craft, and one of them (it is actually linked to cathy of california) is to make those flowers!

I split my time between my history research, my family, and my pets. I enjoy working on history - whether it's on the 19th century or family. The photo of me is a bit of history - I was four! I also delight in both written and artistic journals, knitting, design, and the written word, whether I'm reading it or writing it. I also adore the design of the mid-twentieth century. I am a student of history, particularly an obscure little battle in Lewisburg, West Virginia in 1862 (of course, the town was in Virginia at the time). My grandchildren keep me young and at the same time, constantly remind me how very much I wish my late husband was here to see them, too. My dog and cats keep me busy as well, but are worth every effort!
