After several years in practice in my field we finally got pregnant and as they say, "A baby changes everything"! My heart changed! We shortly welcomed baby number two into our lives. The practice went from part-time to no-time as I desired more and more to be home and flexible for the kiddos. And.....after years of focusing on the analytical, scientific portion of my brain - the creative part refused to be silenced anymore. That's when I learned to knit! So, here I am today - Zippy Moma- a God fearing, Jesus loving, creative mom!

I hope you enjoy what you see. I love knowing that my pieces become a pracitcal, functional and pretty part of your everyday life.

I love hearing from you so feel free to convo me.
