I have always been a creative soul. As a student, I acted in plays and won art awards. In college I took many art courses, but I also excelled in writing and majored in English Literature. Later, I became a published, award-winning novelist and carved out a successful freelance career in travel journalism and photography. Creating well-made, useful items and gifts has always been a favorite pastime - an outlet for my seemingly boundless creative energy. Friends and relatives often ask for me to make special handmade items for them. And I enjoy teaching the joys of crafting - especially now that I am mistress of a large, well-equipped craft room. It is my hangout. My sister-in-law maintains an Etsy shop -Dabby & Doodle Designs (a fabulous boutique for pet lovers). She encouraged me to set up shop here, too. So, here I am - with my kind.
