About

I have always been a make-it-from-scratch kind of person. Living in a rural area, one of the hardest things for me - honestly - is my distance from Home Depot. But wherever I am, I love to make things, fix things, cover 'em up, strip 'em down, all that good stuff. I think Etsy is a brilliant idea and such a great jump start to all these little businesses that would otherwise be operating in obscurity (including mine).

I'm working on fixing up my own studio space right now, but until it's done, each headboard is made in my guest room. I have a very understanding husband who has not once complained about the eternal messes of loose staples, strings, and bits of stuffing all over our house. (I love you Randall!) For now, our only child is a pitiful-looking basset hound, Dooby, who is convinced he is helping me by laying on all my stuff. But he's learning.

So enjoy looking at my items - don't miss my website at www.thetuftedfrog.com and my Facebook page at facebook.com/TheTuftedFrog - and don't hesitate to ask questions. Ask away!
