About

Im an artist at heart. Since childhood I have always dabbled in hand crafts, making my own books, games and marveling the beauty in nature around me. I have dabbled in numerous venues over the years but one that has stuck longer than most is jewelry making. My first experience with beads happened in the late 1970's when my mom signed us up for a macrame class and we made chokers!
My education/career background includes a degree in graphic design and interactive design. I wasnt so sure when I was in college that it was what I wanted to do but a guideance counselor convinced me that the most satisfying thing to do in life is doing what you are good at. She was right. I love my job, I love working with people and helping them bring their business ideas into visual realities.

I love the beauty in the world around me, and one of my favorite senses is that of smell. Im the crazy lady who smells all the body washes in the store, looks for sample perfume smells in magazines, and Im a yankee candle addict!

Beaded Jewelry
moonlilydesigns.etsy.com
I have experience working in several bead stores and teaching seed bead jewelry techniques. I seldom ever follow a pattern and prefer to create my own unique one of a kind pieces. This is my first shop in etsy that features my original jewelry designs. I especially like vintage beads, czech glass, and japanese seed beads.

Graphic Design
moonlilygraphics.etsy.com
I love the process of design and its second nature for me to get lost in color theory, mood boards, and design composition! I have been a freelance graphic designer for over 5 years, offering professional services for brochure, logo, business card, label, postcard, ad, poster and various web design projects.

Gift Shoppe
heavenlylittlegifts.etsy.com
For years a medical condition impaired my ability to smell anything. Since learning I have severe allergies and successfully treating my symptoms Ive gone a little bananas in the smelling department! Since I love Gods gifts in nature I find a certain sense of peace and joy experiencing His creations. Exotic Rainforests, spring flowers, and bright sunny days are just a few of those priceless gifts that one can experience through the sense of smell. I have found a clever way to combine my three favorite things in this shop: beads, design, and smelly goods!
