    how did you become an artist? so many of us raised jw were never given the opportunity to learn any skill or craft.

    with out a formal education, there's not too many choices. LOL. Seriously though, I still don't have a GED... I'm not Stupid... I really lived my first 8 years out of JW-land thinking armagedom was going to come; & i wanted to have fun & not bother with getting an education...DUH . It wasn't till after my kids were a few years old that I started to shape up.... And I started looking for websites about jw after the year 2000

    Mike hello and welcome.

    Your work is very good. You're very lucky to have such a talent.

    Like you, I had my life put on hold, neglecting an education for a while because I was expecting this to happen:


    What was I thinking? Oh well managed to escape and catch up, and be a functioning inhabitant of the real plant earth.

    Take care

    Hello Mike and Welcome to the board!

    Were neighbors, I'm in the Redding area, about 3 1/2 hrs east from you.

    Went to your site. nice work! I create paper mache art, www.acadianoutpost.com I'm always looking for stuff for my paper mache, and you make marbles. Can you make marbles look like cat's eyes?

    Anyway, welcome to the board Mike!
