About

I am a civil engineer working and living in Kansas. I design bridges all over the state of Kansas. Besides bridges, I get to help out with the Great Plains Future City Competition.

I adore crafts. I started sewing in 2009 when I decided I needed curtains for my living room. Since then I have been mostly into garment sewing for myself (or Halloween costumes for the family doggie who hates it).

As for beading, I learned the basics of stringing, knotting, wire wrapping, and peyote stitch back in middle school from a local bead store. I came back to beading later as a hobby later, mainly focusing on bead stitching. Most people at my work tell me the beaded stitched jewelry I made looks complicated and difficult. I don’t think anyone believes me when I tell them it isn’t hard at all but it does require patience…
