Did you know the first useful fiber ever synthesized entirely in the laboratory was for the nylon stocking? Introduced at the 1939 World’s Fair, when they went on sale in 1940 four million pairs sold out in four days.

Artist Ambassador for Zebra Pens. I'm a self-taught artist who dances about with all sorts of artistic mediums. My main loves are Watercolor, Zentangle and Ballpoint pen. The subjects of my work are many and varied and change at whim. I'm a little bit crazy, but doesn't that come with being an artist? At my Life Imitates Doodles Blog, I post a list of resource links for Tangles, Tutorials and Giveaways two times a week. I also write reviews, hold giveaways and share my art work.

  1. Your facts are always so great! They compliment your subject wonderfully. This piece is visually so interesting and I keep going back to look at it! Love it.

  2. Those Peppermint gams! How fun. I do remember….being a 40’s child, seeing my mother’s nylon stockings and the amazing padded lingerie envelopes she kept them in. She still had one of them when I went through her closet after her death a few years ago! Sweet memory!
