Hello and Welcome to My Website!

My name is Mary Ruth Anderson, but I prefer to be called Mary. I’m an artist, seamstress, and photography hobbyist. I also make costumes (Or cosplay) as a way to get better sewing and to have fun at conventions and at my local Renaissance Festival. You can read more about me on the about me page.

I like to blog about my art, sewing, and photos I took along with other things that I do or would like to talk about. These posts can be found at the my blog page but if you are looking for pages dedicated to a specific topic, there are pages dedicated to my art, sewing, and photography.
