If you're like me you don't have a lot of money to spend on a professional, or hardly seems worth the trouble to bother anyone with such a small task. I might be just the person to hire for some small home-fix-it project. If you're looking for perfection--hire the professional, but I have a few talents and work in all sorts of mediums. I wouldn't really call myself an artist--I stick to the word "craft"--probably because I have so many interest that none of them are polished--a "Jill-of-All-Trades." I sew, make jewelry, felt, paint, work with polymer clay, make signs, can build a shelf. I can print custom made peel and stick letters, logos or designs. I've made wedding bouquets from silk flowers, and added bling to veils. I dabble in photography, and have done some photo restorations. As a former teacher, I have some computer skills. I've made slide shows from pictures (usually for weddings, or after the wedding pics or for memorials). I like to repurpose items--little spray paint, add a flower, and viola--like new! I've seen people throw out perfectly good jewelry because of a missing clasp--a two minute fix!
All you have to do is make a request. I'll tell you if I think I can do it and at what cost. I know a lot of what people need can be gotten from Michael's or Hobby Lobby, but there is that rare vision of a project that can't be gotten from anywhere--the size, color, or design just isn't quite right. I haven't had occasion for anyone to stiff me--knock on wood--and I don't collect on my product until someone has seen and are satisfied with the outcome. Check out the different pages on my blog. I'll try to expand my gallery as people make suggestions or I come across previous projects. You can contact me through the email associated with this blog or contact me through my BachsCrafts Facebook page--BachsCrafts/Facebook.
Let me know what you need and I'll let you know whether I think I can handle the task. If not, I'll let you know that as well.
