My mother was nearly driven insane by my desire to keep leftover tidbits and scraps of material, yarn, paper, wire, clay, beads, rocks, twigs, foil, and various other objects. I was always thinking of what I could make next.
Shortly before the birth of my first daughter (during that infamous period called 'nesting') I was overcome by the need to make something both beautiful and useful to share with my new little one.
My grandmother taught me how to crochet, and I made my first baby blanket! That was just the beginning!
I worked on improving my basic sewing skills, started making my own hand stamped cards, and began making gifts for my friends and family.
Since then I've added four more little ones to the mix, and started my own little Etsy Shop, to sell what I make!
There's a little bit of everything here...so I hope you find something you enjoy, as much as I have enjoyed making and doing it!
