I've been creating my whole life. I have been knitting since I was a child (thank you Nana!) and love making baby items - especially hats - and also do a lot of scarves and accessories for adults.
Another love is paper crafts - I have been making custom portfolios for artists, photographers, architects, etc. for about 15 years but I also enjoy making "accessory" books i.e. phone/address books, journals, photo albums, dayplanners. Functionality and durability have always been important factors in my design and construction and I always use archival materials. I make paste papers, which is a process of hand decorating/patterning a blank sheet and often incorporate them in my books.
My more recent passion has been jewelry making (5?-ish years). I only use sterling findings (occasionally gold-filled) and often incorporate vintage beads.
