Hi, everyone! Kris from Junk Chic Cottage and I wanted to do a regular feature on our blogs, something unique that hasn't been done before. So we came up with an idea to 'spotlight the real life behind the blogger' in a more personal way.
There is so much talent and inspiration in blogland, and we thought it would be fun to bring you a closer look at the person behind the blog.
Every week on Saturday we will spotlight a blogger and have them tell us a little bit about themselves and their blogs. You will be able to see and read about each of the bloggers on both Kris's and my blog.
Please help me welcome my guest today, Marsha from Tattered Chick (love that name!) Marsha is a true artist, and I'm in awe of her talent! I don't think that there's a medium that she isn't phenomenal at using!
I know that you'll enjoy seeing her various creations, and getting to know her better.
Hmm, not sure where to start! I'm very eclectic in what I create. There was a time not too long ago I was all about creating miniature dolls. After several years of making dolls I burnt out, matter of fact I just sold my kiln and the last of my doll molds!
I returned to my love of junking and prim and became interested in other creative endeavors . . .
Which led to me selling my wares at a local flea market . . . .
And for a short period of time at a shop . . .
I dabble a little bit with photography
Nowadays my focus is more on assemblage and mixed media. I even took the plunge and submitted Spike in an art competition at the local art center and to my surprise I won second place in my category!!!
I've attended some fabulous art retreats. My last one was in Arizona where I made this journal.
I still make dolls . . . although cloth ones . . .
And of course I continue to scour flea markets & estate sales!!
Something I thought I would NEVER been interested in, drawing and journaling!!! Never say never LOL I am HOOKED!
Halloween is my FAVORITE holiday and fall my favorite time of the year . . . could be because October is my birthday month! If I were younger I'd be totally into goth and steampunk!
I lived in Portugal and Spain when I was young. I love horses but have always been intimidated by them, hmmm, I can see where that fear started!
I am a native California gal and now live in the Sacramento area with my husband and fur boxer girl Sophie (who we adopted from the Nor Cal Boxer Rescue)
If you'd like to keep up with my Sunday drives, creative endeavors and flea finds, you can find me on my blog . . .
and in my Etsy Shop!
Thank you so much, Susan, for this opportunity to share a little bit about myself with your readers!
Marsha, thank you for sharing with us! I think 'Spike' is so fun, and can see why he placed high!

Have a great day :)
