Artist | Hobbyist | Artisan Crafts
Welcome to my profile, I'm Mina - Real name is Samantha, so Sam or Sammy is also fine.
A few things you might find in my gallery are cross stitches, perler/hama bead pieces and crochet. My interests aren't limited to those three things so occasionally something new might find it's way in there.
My mother taught me how to cross stitch when I was pretty young and since then I've been doing it on and off over the years. I really enjoy it but it's also very time consuming and can be rather frustrating so I do lose motivation sometimes.
I've not been working with hama beads for very long and when I started they were super fun to create with but quickly got boring for me. I've managed to make a few things I'm rather proud of but as it stands now, I'm unlikely to carry on making art in this form.
I'm also teaching myself how to crochet with the help of a few Youtube videos. I only started in November/December of 2013 but I'm enjoying it tremendously. I find it extremely relaxing. At the moment I mainly make hats, gloves, bags and a dog coat but I'm branching out slowly. Sadly though, I don't have access to a decent camera at all times and my photography skills need some polishing so that's something to keep in mind.
Outside of crafting I enjoy playing video games and visual novels (so I guess that's classed as reading haha). Some of my most played games are Skyrim, Diablo, Dragon age and the Prince of Persia series. I was also quite the WoW fan at one point. I'm also interested in anime and watching let's plays. My favourite Youtube let's play...ers are Cryaotic and Northernlion. Both of them are really fun to watch.
I also appear to be obsessed with the face and llama badges!
