I love colors. I love fabric. When I can take the two and put them together and mix and match, I am happy. Creating something new or rearranging something old to give it new purpose, is so much fun.

I'm Mom to three crazy kids. I'm living back in the Old Dominion after a few years hiatus. I blog about our happenings at www.amayakind.blogspot.com
