The Queen of everything...even if the most prominent is my imagination. ;)

For the reasons behind the name "The Magpie's Ritual", please see my "Policies" page. After learning about magpies and the special way they create their nests, I realized I really relate to them...maybe a magpie in a past life? (Better than what some have said I probably was!)

Excited to have a girl (my boys are true boys) I wanted her to be a part of my business somehow. She was inspiration at it's finest - still is - and our wild & wacky relationship keeps my creative fires burning.
