***About Me***

Since I was a child, I have felt the urge to create. Now that I have a child, I've been inspired to create things that will put a smile on his face.

As a former k-12 Art Teacher who is trained as a graphic designer and photographer, I learned to sew from my husband's grandmother. She makes the most beautiful quilts, and I begged her to teach me. In one afternoon under her helpful guidance, I pieced, quilted and stuffed a pillow. Sewing has been my main creative outlet ever since.

I came up with the Teething Giraffe pattern after we received something similar for a baby gift from friends. My little one loved it, but so did my 3-year-old niece! When we asked where we could get another one, our friends told us that it had been made by their grandmother who had passed away. I figured out how I could make one with a few aesthetic changes and before my niece left to go home we had a herd of giraffes in the house!

I make Teething Giraffes using 100% pre-washed cotton and they are stuffed using Eco-friendly Fiberfill. The stuffing is 100% renewable and plant-based, as well as hypo-allergenic.
