My SIL decided to raise chickens. She is having so much fun with it and has enjoyed the eggs. I laugh because we always accuse her of chasng chickens. Now she literally does. LOL

My daughter and her family have decided they want to raise chickens, so I gave them several useful items for Christmas, along with some how-to books and some decorative items for their kitchen. Her husband will start constructing the coop(s) as soon as the kids are finished with their hog projects for the year and those animals are out of the way. He will build near the pig pens because there is already water and electricity in that part of their property.

I know hardly anything at all about raising chickens, but like you said, nothing like fresh eggs!

I checked the spark pages of the "leaders" and find no one is online anymore. I like this team but I spend most of my time on the Artist Team and Before the Landfill.

Are those real live chickens?

I am working on some "recycle" arts. I love chickens (I have 23) and my first project is a chicken out of a cereal box!! Since this seems to be the busiest forum, do we still have a leader? Where has everybody gone??

I was given a bunch of yarn so I'm making some hats to keep my ears warm. I gave my last ones away to my sister to cover her bald head while going through Chemo. She has hair again and looks marvelous. Remission suits her.

I've been working on a crocheted shawl. The crocheting part is not new to me as I do that all the time; however, I've never used this thread before & I love it. It is Red Heart Boutique Unforgettable. I bought it several months ago for a different project that I never started because there seemed to be problems with the pattern. I'm almost finished with the shawl & will have almost a full skein left. I am going to use that to make a cowl.

Finally getting around to catching up with you gals! Wow! I've always loved photography. I actually have an awesome 35mm Nikon set up that i've never used . . . (replacement for my old standby that was stolen). Same time I got my first digital, and have been spoiled ever since.

Presently I'm trying to set up an area where I can photograph the jewelry I'm making for inventory and Facebook page. I just can't get it right.

I've never used Photoshop, either, but I think it would be fun. IF the computer worked!

I use Photoshop and Lightroom as my digital darkroom. After spending 2 solid days trying to get my computer working again I'm not so sure I care right now. At least when I do other crafts I'm not dependent on the equipment. I can always crochet or paint. No computer involved!

Picture frames with lace sounds like a great idea, PEARLSANDLACE!

My mother was a quilter, but I never have gotten into that. I think it would be fun, but another project with more expenses and more supplies around the house! So I may never get around to trying that as a new craft.

I took a photography course for my undergraduate studies, and when my ex-husband and I remodeled our house we built a dark room. I enjoyed that immensely for awhile, but I haven't done any developing of my own photographs since around 1990. When I sold my house I donated all my dark room equipment to a non-profit art school. I accidentally dropped my good Nikon camera on the floor of the hospital when I went in to see my first granddaughter, and she's 15 now! Never had it fixed. Right now the extent of my photography consists mainly of taking photos of my grandkids on my iPhone.

I keep finding all sorts of new ideas on Pinterest. Some I try, and some I keep saying I'll do "someday."
So many crafts; so little time!

I, too, like to try new crafts, especially if they are not too expensive...

For example, I would like to try some resin casting, but am flummoxed at what to try first.... so many choices, so little time!

I'm always trying new crafts! I love to learn different techniques, especially with paper arts.
One of the drawbacks to trying so many new crafts is that I have ended up with way too many arts & crafts supplies!

Do you try new crafts or stick to things you know how to do? I mostly crochet but I do other crafting as well. Plus once in a while I try something new. How about you?
