About

Wind Up The Girl

Short and simple, I like to make things. I work in a spare room that I share with my husbands' workout equipment, a small space that I tend to take over. Boxes of things—I tell him "I'll use it. . . eventually." Bits and pieces that one day find their way into something. It's really the love of the contrast, mixes of textures and media—new with old, fabricated with found—is what really inspires me. I created a mixed media valentine, many years ago, entitled "Wind up the Girl", and the idea of gears and clockwork just stuck with me. I kind of felt like that was me, just parts and pieces of something else. I like things that sparkle but when mixed with something vintage, broken or rusty, now we're talking! The name Artful Notions came about when I first thought to sell some of the things I'd made. They were small glass pendants that incorporated vintage buttons. I thought of the double meaning of notion: idea of a sewing notion (the button) and the notion as an idea and Artful Notions was born.
