Hello! Thanks for taking the time to visit The Foxy Squirrel! My shop is filled with handmade stationery that can be customized for any occasion.

My name is Allison and I'm a craftaholic. Seriously. I've been making things since I was little and my grandma Agnes let me watch her sew. I'd get all the scraps and she'd let me use her pins, thread and needles to create various gifts and costumes. Since then, I've gone on to attend college and graduate with a B.A. in Art History and Visual Art Studies, concentrating in Graphic Design and Photography. Fancy, right? Don't forget the minor in Architecture!

I have continued to design and craft as a creative outlet. I have a wild imagination and I love the challenge of dreaming something up and seeing if I can make it a reality. I'm like a hummingbird, flitting from one project to the next (fueled…

I have continued to design and craft as a creative outlet. I have a wild imagination and I love the challenge of dreaming something up and seeing if I can make it a reality. I'm like a hummingbird, flitting from one project to the next (fueled on sugar, of course!). At any given time, I'll have 3-5 projects going in various stages of "done".

The Foxy Squirrel is born from my need to create and share my creations with others. And make a little side cash. I strive to make excellent products that become "must-haves" for my customers. My skills and design sense come together to form quirky, elegant, and well made objects that can be shared with everyone.

Why "The Foxy Squirrel"?
I've been a bit obsessed with squirrels since high school when my best friend and I noticed that they seemed to be plotting something. If you've ever seen a congregation of 6-7 squirrels in one place, you know what I'm talking about. The air is still and you look on, suspiciously. They're mischievous, like me. And spastic, again, like me. Being that my friend and I are both female, we decided that our theme song "Foxy Lady" should be combined, and suddenly, we were Foxy Squirrels.

Some other squirrels you may have encountered:
Evil Squirrel: This is the one that darts in front of your car as you're driving past, causing you to swerve. After the fact, you swear he's sitting on the sidewalk laughing at you.
Distinguished Squirrel: He's probably the male counterpart to the Foxy Squirrel. I'm pretty sure he has a mustache and monocle. Maybe even a top hat.
Bob: The squirrel whose tail met an untimely end.
Blondie: The squirrel with a white-blond tail. Gray squirrel, blond tail. No joke.
