Things That Interest Me
I have a wide variety of interests. Here are some of the things that tickle my brain and my fancy, as well as things that I find useful.
Art & Crafts
My interest in art and jewelry is primarily in the making it. I don’t spend a great deal of time talking about it. Most of my discussion about my work is on blog posts, articles on my sites, and on social media. My jewelry and art is based on timeless energy rather than based on a passing fashion.
- Etsy (US) – Artists, Crafters, and Art and Craft Supplies
- Facebook – I find a lot of my art & crafts info here
- Jewelry Lessons.com
- My Handmade Jewelry (Shocking, I know! heee)
Cats & A Catnip Stuffed Duck
- HotMBC – My cats on Facebook
- Nipclub – Having fun raising funds for animal charities (The nip in Nipclub stands for catnip, btw.)
- Psychokitty – Max, Author, Blogging Cat, Inspiration
- oh and George the Duck who I type for (and who is funnier than me)
I am a HUGE Grumpy Cat fan. If you wandered into my studio you’d figure it out from the stuffed Grumpy, and the buttons, and the mugs, and the pens and… yeah.
Mystical, Metaphysical & Spiritual
I regularly research and write about mystical, metaphysical and spiritual subjects. Google is my biggest resource outside books and people; it helps me find whatever I’m looking for. Squarespace and WordPress help me bring articles to light.
- Color Therapy
- Crystal Meanings – My crystal meanings site (Another shocker! LOL)
- Google – My helpmate in researching all things mystical
- Spirituality in its man y guises
- The Mandala Project
- Mindat.org – Mineralogical Reference for Crystals and Minerals, research for metaphysical use of crystals
Software & Services I Use
It may be a bit peculiar to talk about software and services I use here, but most of them I use daily which amounts to a real interest.
- Amazon including Secure Storage, Supplies Purchasing, and others
- Google Products including Chrome, Bookmarks, and others
- Photoshop (Did you know they have free online tools?)
- Social Media – Facebook, Google+, Instagram, Pinterest, Twitter
- Squarespace – Powers my Crystal Meanings and AllTheChakras.com sites to share metaphysical and spiritual information
- WordPress – Powers the main www.CrystalsandJewelry.com site as well as this one.
As a child, I watched the first men walk on the moon. 2001: A Space Odyssey was the first full length film I ever watched–my parents couldn’t find a babysitter, so they took my brother and I to see it. I have Star Trek in my blood. It was almost impossible for me not to be interested in space, real and artistically presented.
