I must be busy all the time. I can not sit still...for if I ever do, I'm sure I will simply explode from all the "I can do that myself" energy that will have no place to go. So I make beads, I make tools for other people who make beads, I sew and I knit.

If ever I must go for a ride in the car, I knit. I also knit while I'm shopping. Public knitting has become a norm in my life. I can do it anywhere, as it is so portable. Far more portable then my torch or my sewing machine. I don't sell what I knit, because I love my baby, and I make all my knitted projects for her.

I love to melt glass. It's really the most fun. But you can't drag your torch around with you, and it's really not something you should do while you are watching your 1 year old baby explore the world. For that reason, I do not get to do it…

I love to melt glass. It's really the most fun. But you can't drag your torch around with you, and it's really not something you should do while you are watching your 1 year old baby explore the world. For that reason, I do not get to do it as often as I'd like. But from time to time you will find some beads posted here. Occasionally I even make jewelry, which could be here too.

I need to stay focussed when I drive. I try not to knit while I'm driving. I find that I need a spot for my cell phone, sunglasses, debit card (for when I go through Starbucks for a yummy Shaken Blueberry White Iced Tea, with 1/2 the sweetener), and spare change. I designed the Car Catchall to keep me focussed. I think everyone should be focussed in the car, and the Catchall is so helpful, I decided to make one that you can have too...

I drive a PT Cruiser, which is a very fun car, but I must admit I harbor jealousy against those who drive VW Bugs. Not that I would trade my PT Crusier for that car, or any car for that matter, it my opion Cruisers are really the best. BUT, VW Bugs have the neat little vase for flowers. That is why the Car Catchall's are made with fun fabric. I may not be able to have a vase for flowers, but I can certainly have fun fabric to brighten my day in the car!

I don't really do special orders. I melt glass and sew because I love color, texture and the use of color and texture together. I make things so I can use color and texture as I envision. If I make things the way you want, then it's not my vision I'm working on...and really life is too short to spend it on someone else's vision. However, your vision might be something I can really get excited about. So if you can handle the very real possiblity of a "no", then go ahead and ask. If you could not handle the "no", no matter how politely it is passed on, please save both of us the internal angst, and do not ask.

I hope you enjoy the fun, useful things I make.

I am also selling items for for little girls, here on Etsy, under the selling name "Sweetbabygirl".
