About

Sometimes you have to wonder how you arrived at a particular juncture in your life. I was not a particularly stellar high school student, but I have to admit I am a bright chic with a bit of a chill-axin’ streak. I will tell you that for some reason crafting has always been something that I have always had a love for.

My very first project was a crochet hat for my sock monkey Mrs. Peabody (I was around 12 /13). Now, I had never crocheted in my life, but I figured out how to do a single crochet, link it, drop stitches, and create a little round hat…with no direction, no example, no lessons and never having crocheted ever! For a few years I thought about that hat, but did nothing about it as far as trying to get some lessons to become a proficient crocheter.

I graduated from high school hell, joined the Navy…

Sometimes you have to wonder how you arrived at a particular juncture in your life.

I will tell you that for some reason crafting has always been something that I have always had a love for.

My very first project was a crochet hat for my sock monkey Mrs. Peabody (I was around 12 /13). Now, I had never crocheted in my life, but I figured out how to do a single crochet, link it, drop stitches, and create a little round hat…with no direction, no example, no lessons and never having crocheted ever! For a few years I thought about that hat, but did nothing about it as far as trying to get some lessons to become a proficient crocheter.

I graduated from high school hell, joined the Navy (the Circus would have sounded cooler), earned a commission (Naval Officer ya’ll), got married, graduated from college with undergraduate and graduate degrees, and now I work in DC for an appointee. So, in all of that there is nothing to indicate that I should be crafting anything at anytime. I really believe that because my life is so structured sometimes, I am creative. I love bold, bright, and whimsical colors and designs. I have a love affair with things that sparkle, wave, and layer. I have a dirty nasty love affair with my sewing machines, I often get big-girl toy envy when my friends get a new crafting toy, and I am a hoarder of craft specialties. I admit that I hate scrapbooking, knitting, and jewelry making, but if given the opportunity…hell yeah bitches I am on it and going overboard with it!

I have reached the ripe old age of “nun-ya-dayum-business” and I have a “studio” in my apartment filled from floor to ceiling with all kinds of crafting supplies, I am in pure heaven. All I need is a sexy dude to bring me cocktails all day while I cut, place, and sew all those lovely little pieces of fabric into a masterpiece…oh wait, I have a sexy hubby that does just that! God life is good!

I make things that I have a passion for; right now that is dog collars and leashes. I love my pooch Chester the Chunky Chow-Chow and I love dressing him up in the latest collar designs and waiting for the opportunity to hand out my card and proudly say…”I made that!”
