Welcome to Wolves and Ravens, our names are Madeline and Tina. We are cousins and we both live in the state of California. Working together to build this website, our goal is to share our interests with you. We chose the name Wolves and Ravens because both animals work together in nature to achieve a common goal. So with this in mind, we hope to collaborate to create something worth more than its individual parts.
Why We Started Wolves & Ravens
Our goal when we decided to make this site, was to help people like you journey throughout your creative endeavors. We are both interested in art, but don’t always stick to one medium in particular. So we wanted to create a community of sorts that are similar in this fashion. You flit from medium to medium, not always staying on the same topic. The only thing connecting your interests being the need to create. To be creative.
Whenever we try to learn a new skill, whether it be cooking, drawing, or painting, we always try to learn as much as possible about the skill before diving in. Whether it be scrolling through blogs or checking out trying to gather the information we need to feel that we really can pull it off. I’m sure both of us can agree that we’ve watched plenty of youtube videos on top of our regular research. That we really can express our thoughts and emotions in different ways, be able to create multiple things. And by coming to this website, we are hoping that you are like this too. So this is where we come in. On this blog, we are going to be exploring the many different ways of creating and sharing our experiences with you. We will also be sharing about the crafts that we are exploring, hopefully something that you will be able to use for reference, should you want to try out that certain craft.

With this, Tina and I are creating our own little corner of the internet. A corner that we hope will help, and maybe even inspire, you. One thing you should know about me is that I love words. I love books and can talk for hours on end about them. And from those books, I like to pull little snippets that I find intriguing or inspiring. In addition to being a word-lover, I’m also a sister and an aspiring author. And so my hopes are to share tips with you that have helped me in my writing experience.
The thing that first got me on the path of writing is reading. It was only because of school that I started reading, but it was because of my father that I really started to love it. My very first chapter book was Little House on the Prairie by Laura Ingalls Wilder. My dad started reading the first few chapters to me every night, but eventually I couldn’t wait to find out what happened next and so continues on without him.
In elementary school and middle school, the friends that I made also loved books and would come up with these random story ideas. I eventually joined in and started writing my own stories. However when I started writing, I didn’t really know what I was doing, and so I did quite a bit of research on it (and I still am). And so that brings me to today, where I love reading, writing, and collecting quotes.

To the world of bloggers and other people sharing their ideas with the world, I say hello. My cousin Madeline and I are two completely different human beings with similar-ish interests. But that is the exact reason why we make such a great team. I am the kind of person who has to use all her will power not start cooing over a little bird hopping around nearby. So most of my posts on this website will be based on my obsessions that would otherwise be boring to listen to in the physical world. I sincerely hope that my knowledge will useful to you. If not, then I hope that my way of looking at the world will at least be entertaining.
