For quite some time I've had a dream of being an entrepreneur. I think this dream goes all the way back to my junior high days....
Hello! My name is Elisabeth, but since Kindergarten I've been known affectionately as "Libby". By profession I am a teacher, but here on this space, I get to share with you my other passions.
Back in June of 2010 I became the official name behind Artistic Expressions by Elisabeth. I chose that name because I think it suits who I am as a person. I love so many different creative outlets that I can't choose just one. My expressions may come in the form of crochet, photography, cooking, crafting, sewing, and most recently, knitting. Let's also throw in there that I change my hairstyles quite frequently - another expression!
One thing I love about this thing called the internet, is that for the first real time, I can openly shout, "I love crochet!" and I don't get that "grandma" or "old maid" backlash. I can be free to be me and to communicate with other like-minded people of all ages.

networking/talking to friends, photography, and other crafty stuff
I’m inspired by the people around me. I love the positive energies when people talk about their own hobbies/craft forms, even if it’s not my own. I’m inspired by those that do what I do – just seeing how a thing called yarn can be transformed into something truly unique is amazing to me. I love nature and seeing the beauty in its creation. Many of the color schemes for my knitted/crocheted items come from the colors found in nature.
Only for the weekend? Well, since it's for the weekend, I'd like to go somewhere with a nice art scene. It doesn't have to be a major city, but somewhere where art is appreciated.
Now if it were for longer, I'd love to go to a foreign country, in particular a Spanish-speaking country where I could literally sit at the feet of the handmade artisans there and learn. *sigh*
