One thing I love to do, when I have the time, is to paint, in my case it's mostly landscapes.  Painting landscapes fits so well with my interest in creation and my photography, God's creation is so awesome and wonderful that I cannot stop celebrating it.  However I believe that anything we create is a reflection of our creator.  My wife and I are very much into crafts and we have a room specially for the purpose, my wife loves to produce Afghan Crochet and runs several groups.  On line she hosts a large group and has formed a group at our church where people share their skills, sh also makes cards and creates Cross Stitch pieces that are awesome.  I love to make marine models and do graphic design work and will turn my hand to almost any sort of craft.

So, if you like being creative in any way, join us, teach us and learn from us, most of all HAVE FUN.

It would be great if we could share our work and possibly share our skills and gifts also, with hints and tips to help us produce better pieces.

  • Dr. Blake, Hello. I am a new member of Christianslikeme. My main hobbies are model railroading, and scale model building; things i have been doing for over 60 years. Is this group a good 'fit' for my interests? I noticed that you also have an interest in marine models. Please let me know. If my interests do not 'fit' within this group I will cheerfully look elsewhere. Thank you, Larry
    • Larry, welcome to the group, yes certainly, any model makers are welcome here, anyone who loves to indulge themselves in crafts of any type. Yes I do like to make marine models, although bad health has stopped me from doing so of late, and I have also been into aero-modeling and rocketry in the past. So you are a very good fit, I look foeward to seeing some of your models.
    • Thank you. Once I figure out how to post photos I will do so. I enjoy All forms of model building, both in wood, plastic and resin. I've been working on the US Constellation Artesania Latina kit for a "few" years. All done but the sails and some of the ratlines. (getting a bit more difficult these 'later' years.) I've had the good fortune to be published in some model railroading magazines for my meager efforts in that realm. I will share some of this as well. Cheers!
  • I am a newbie in art, photography and bonsai. However I am keen to learn and very enthusiastic. I believe that I can use my creativity to glorify God.
    • Aristotle wrote: "The things we learn to do, we learn to do them by doing them." Which is something I have always subscribed to. Get your camera and get out there and just take images, you can learn the technical bits as you go, as you need them, the most important thing is to develop is an eye for a good shot. It is often the same with art, you get some paints and a brush or two and start painting or drawing, what you need to do is just get some techniques under your belt, ones you develop yourself, just do it and then wonder how you did it.
  • Welcome to the Christian Artists and Crafters Group Anne. In this group we try to share the things we do, from photographs to paintings,and share helpful tips, methods to help others. We welcome critiques, and constructive criticism, because that helps us to perfect our craft or art. We all look forward to seeing some examples from you.
    • Thanks! I'm looking forward to the journey...
  • Welcome to the Christian Artists and Crafters Group Vicki, thanks for joining. The idea of the group is to share the things we do, from photographs to paintings, yarn art, and any other craft, also to share helpful tips, methods and suggestions to help others. We welcome critiques, and constructive criticism, because that helps us to perfect our craft. I know what you mean about sunsets, I love to photograph them and to paint them also, I also love to write, which is why I created the The Writer's Pen group, as you like to write poetry, you may like to join that group as well.
  • I would like to say thank you to brother Dr. Derek Blake for suggesting this group to me , for I love doing crafts and make hemp bracelets , keychains and other things I have recently learned how to crochet but have only made one afghan for now and will try to share a picture of it , and also write poems and love to take pictures of sunsets and other peaceful things .
  • Has anyone heard of paper quilting? I'm also trying to frame landscape and seascape pictures so that they have a 3-dimensional appearance by using magnifying sheets. I do not draw or paint but The Lord has given me these ideas that I would like to perfect. Do any of you experts have any suggestions?
