Hey There!

Thanks for checking out my site. I'm Elena Anderson, chief cook and bottle washer for Black Sheep 303 Creative, llc. I have been a crafter all of my life from cross stitch and hardanger as a child (thanks Aunt June & Shirley!) to my love affair with paper today. I do get restless, though, so I occasionally have to try something new like jewelry making or DIY decor. I want to share all of that craziness with you!

I've been a fan of various YouTube crafters for years and finally decided to take the leap and try my hand at it as well. I will do my best to provide you with creative ideas, an appreciation for the imperfection of the hand made and encouragement to express "you" in your own creations. I am very excited to be here and hope, more than anything, that you will participate with me. Please send me emails, comments, suggestions - whatever. I would truly appreciate getting to know you and how you like to express your own creativity. I look forward to hearing from you!

I have been married to my best friend Alex for 17 years. We have an amazing rescue rat terrier-chihuahua mix (as seen on the home page) named Django. We live in Colorado and feel truly blessed to be somewhere so beautiful although the population is exploding and the traffic is getting out of hand - ugh! But enough complaining...Alex & I love to travel, although we don't get to do it enough of it, and are snorkeling obsessed. My dream vacation would be to snorkel with Manta Rays in the Maldives. I enjoy a good mystery and love watching great movies and TV. Personal favorites, as of right now, are Kung Fu Panda 3, Walking Dead and (just finished) Penny Dreadful. If you have any recommendations, I would love to hear them. Thanks!
