About

I used to be a crazy corporate lady in tailored black suits. Now, I drive an SUV and go to the park on sunny days. I'm a stay at home mom to two wild little roosters (as my darling husband calls our boys). We love story time at the public library, garage sales, baking, holding manic tricycle "car washes" in the back yard, gift wrapping, and crafting. Moxie was my first child - a tiny, blonde yorkie who, well, had lots of moxie. I was Moxie's momma before I was a MoxieMomma. ;o)

I make wet erase and dry erase memo boards and menu boards that are "functional art". They are framed and ready for wall hanging. The "Baby Boards" can also be used on a desk top. The "Momma Boards" are huge and have lots of room for all the annotations necessary to a busy life. Recently, I've added other fun-ctional items for the holidays including hair accessories, jewelry, and holidy card holders…

I am new to ETSY but have created functional art my entire life. My grandparents were in the hardware business, mother was a painter/jewelry designer/art teacher, and my father was a general contractor. I am lucky to be blessed with both the creative genes and the "Macgyver gene" (which my sons have inherited also; they each were able to take apart a high chair and remove knobs from cabinets before they could walk).

After attending art school, I buried my creative side in favor for a "serious" job thinking that I could create on the weekends. But that serious job consumed all my weekends, and evenings, and every other waking moment of my life. Through a series of wonderful, sudden, and unexpected events, I met my husband, took his name, moved cross country, had two babies, chased off the crazy corporate lady, and rediscovered my old self. I'm so glad she's back.
