I am a very dedicated artist/crafter who enjoys working with multiple medias. I was able to draw people by the time I was 4 (no stick figures for this girl!) and a basic "Learn To Draw" kit from a favorite Uncle at Christmas time pretty much sealed the deal. I knew that I wanted to be an art teacher before I even started kindergarten! Of course, life happens and plans and dreams sometimes change. By the time I turned 20, my priorities changed and I chose marriage and motherhood over everything else. With 3 young boys, I was crazy busy with day to day life and time just seemed to fly by.

Over the years, I have tried many different forms of art, from graphic design to jewelry to scrapbooking and everything in between! My current passion is knitting and crocheting, which could not have happened at a better time, as our first grandchild, a little girl named Zellia came into the world on…

All in all, I am so happy to be a part of the crafting world (again) and look forward to making some new friends as well as new crafts!

As for the name of the shop “Wughmaker”, there is a cute story behind that. In 2004, my husband was deployed to Afghanistan and I really needed something - portable – to take my mind off of what was happening over there, and I, having lived in NH all of my life, had perfected some very distinct sayings over the years. A favorite of mine are the words wicked good, as in ‘that was a wicked good movie’, or a ‘wicked good restaurant', etc. Anyway, I had taught my left-handed-self to crochet. My first projects were hats, hats and more hats! What to do with all of them. ‘Well sell them’, I was told, since I made some ‘wicked good hats’. Next came the part of thinking of a name for all of these items. I was making a lino block up of a moose to make the tags out of, but I was not sure of where to go from there. My then 12 year-old stepdaughter started running around the house with one of the hats on her head and her thumbs in her ears, all the time wiggling her fingers saying she was a moose and calling out – wugh wugh wugh….
and that was how Wicked (uhhhh ) Good Hats was born!
