I've got an opening on my support team that I'd love to fill with someone who'd fit in with the other artistic, creative ladies on my team!

A little about me: I'm a self-taught artist who enjoys doing textile art (crochet, knitting, needlepoint, and sewing just to name a few). I also enjoy baking and am a huge Elvis Presley fan! I live in a cozy little condo in the Highview area with my housemate.
