I don't mind making things for girls; don't get me wrong! Sometimes it's really fun to surround myself with pink and purple and princesses... It doesn't happen often in this house! But, my passion is in making fun things for boys.

I hope you like what you see here, and if I can help you in any way, please let me know. Thanks for stopping by!
