Kitty D's Profile

About

I am an every day crafter and artist. I have been since I was a little girl. My Mother would take me to the Singer sewing shop to buy remnants so I could hand stitch beautiful fashions for my Barbie dolls. When I was 12 years old my mother enrolled me in summer sewing class at that very Singer shop. Near the end of each summer we would visit my Grandmother in a little town in Nebraska. When we arrived she'd have a cute craft prepared for me; patterns cut, instructions written, and I'd spend two weeks crafting with her. So it began, and I've been crafting ever since.

I started creating velvet pumpkins many years ago but was looking for something to set them apart and naturally I would turn to something vintage. I have a great love of vintage silver.

Tarnished and dark or shiny and silver makes no difference to me. It would make sense to find a way to incorporate it into my velvet pumpkins. Although my shop primarily contains my beautiful pumpkins, from time to time, I have additional treasures tucked in.

My studio's name, "Pumpkinhead", comes from a song my Dad sang to me when he walked in from the office every evening. It went something like "Kitty B... is a Pumpkinhead, Pumpkinhead, Pumpkinhead..."

With all that said.....Welcome to my shop! Feel free to browse and enjoy!
