    Oh, hello!

    Hello everyone!

    My name is Bonnie Why. I am 28-years-old and am a self-taught website designer that started making websites when I was 12 to stave off a lonely summer in a new city. I live in Kansas City, MO with my two dogs and my workaholic girlfriend. I have a day job as a barista. I'd like to quit that one sometime this year. I started with Paint Shop Pro 8 and really fought [for no good reason, really] the switch to Photoshop. But now I've seen the light! Haha. I am just starting out as a freelance artist and am currently procrastinating against the daunting task of putting together my online portfolio.

    I am a quintessential jack-of-all-trades-master-of-none type. I like to knit & crochet, paint, draw [especially in chalk], sing, speak Japanese, make scary masks, collage, sew, play video games [Minecraft, mostly], play in a 70's band with my dad, and more stuff that I'll probably talk about later. Haha. I love birds, all things that sting and bite, foxes, and metal - the substance. I'm obsessed with music. My top three are favorites are Buck 65, the Knife, and CocoRosie, but that in no way covers all of the music I listen to.

    Oh, and I like podcasts. [Everyone should listen to 'Call Chelsea Peretti'...]

    Nice to meet you! Look forward to seeing you all around the forums.

    Hi Bonnie, and welcome.

    Me too. I also used to do quite a bit of sewing - mainly dressmaking - but it's been a while since I last did any. Have you tried tatting? I taught myself from a book a number of years ago, and I really enjoy it for a change. It's very portable, too, so great to take with you when you're travelling.

    On the other hand, I'm a dead loss at painting, drawing, etc. - but I'm married to an artist, so I know quite a bit about the theory and materials - not least how to clean almost any kind of paint off almost any kind of surface.

    Thanks for the welcome everyone!

    I haven't tried tatting, but a friend of mine does it. I will eventually pick it up. I have all of the materials, really. Haha. I'm a painter and still don't know how to clean any surface, not for want of it. I really tend to ruin a lot of brushes from lack of cleaning - mostly thanks to Mod Podge. I'm trying to remedy that. <3

    [PS: For the record, I love bears! Used to be my favorite animal until I found bees. Haha. <3]

    I have a soft spot for bees. I also make candles, and while I use a variety of waxes, beeswax is my favourite for the gorgeous smell.
