Buttons and Bows

Happy week-end everyone yes it's a little nippy but it's dry and I'm sure there will be a lot of people in their gardens, I'm just happy to be back on line all up and running again as I've had a very POORLY computer.
This week-end is also the start of a new challenge over at OSCC with a New Sponsor and the Theme this week is Buttons and Bows
Store and Pattie Gomez Bio
I am an Internet Technology Professional and an Artist. I always dreamed of being an artist, but I found out quickly that I needed another field to support my family so I pursued a Degree in Information Technology. I love to use Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator and Fireworks to enhance my work.
I created a character called Pattieboop and her cat named Allie. I have had so much fun coming up with different images so I also created a site to sell them. You can go to my store to find out more about Pattieboop & Allie. I know you will just love them when you see them.
Here is the bio of Pattieboop & Allie if you want to use it. I have it posted at my store.
Pattieboop is an 11 year old girl who is very opinionated. She was created by me, Pattie Gomez on September 7, 2009. Pattieboop is an average 11 year old and she loves dressing up. She is very petite in nature but stands tall because her mother always told her that “If you stand tall you will one day become someone important”. Pattieboop always remembers her mother’s words and makes sure she is noticed. Pattieboop has a favorite pet named Allie. Allie is a slender black cat and loves playing and spending time with Pattieboop. Allie spends most of her days napping and her nights are spent getting in to mischief…

Hi my crafty friends i am Tracy Wray owner and designer of craftycat designs, i have been crafting for many years, but my love of art and crafts comes from my mother, she used to make all my clothes and stuffed toys, i was knitting and crocheting at 5 something my mother, grandmother and i used do together. I love all forms of crafting and i often have many things on the go as i cant just stick to one thing. I have 7 mad cats who also like to craft with me, well that's what they think they are doing, most of the time its them chasing my paper flowers all over the place! I love that anyone can craft no matter their age or ability it brings everyone together with such wonderful hobby, i hope i can inspire a few people along the way and share my passion for crafting with everyone. hugs Tracy x
