Sewing is my first love but I have always found it impossible to limit my creativity to one medium. I enjoy working with almost all fabrics, and I especially love anything soft and plush or a cool texture. Adding glittery or cool details is the best!

Crafts of almost any kind interest me and I love to try them all! Knitting and crochet are my latest rediscovered craft of choice. Trying my hand at quilting again and dabbling with rubber stamps and scrapbooking. I also love to paint and have a strong interest in photography.

In a previous life I owned a consignment shop and I still love to collect, trade, refurbish and resurrect vintage stuff of all kinds.

I also love to bake but I dont know if that will ever turn up on Etsy; it just keeps my energy going!
