About

MANY HATS

My blissfuly normal life as a wife and mom has me wearing many hats - so to speak. I am a taxi driver, house keeper (this one is not my favorite as it involves toilet scrubbing), a chef, nurse, cheerleader, etc. Lucky for me, I like wearing (most) hats.

Finding Etsy years ago has allowed me to wear of my most favorite hat more often - my beret - (no, I don't really wear a beret, I just thought it was a nice visual of an artist hat). When I put on my imaginary beret I spin into a world of creativity and imagination. It is my time to be just me. I am currently a Graphic Artist, Jeweler, and Printmaker (why 'currently' - oh, who knows what color beret I will put on next).**

I have worked professionally as a graphic artist for many years and I still enjoy it (need a logo?). However, I found myself wanting to work with my hands and create more rustic and unique one-of-a-kind items so, I started making jewelry...wearable art is so much fun! What started out as a hobby making gifts for family and friends turned into a nice little side business on Etsy (Tedra Designs). It is pretty darn cool to design custom and personalized pieces for people all over the world.

However, while still wanting to produce unique rustic one-of-a-kind pieces, I wanted to create more colorful artwork. So, I began making block prints. I am always drawing and doodling so, printmaking is a great way for me to bring my graphic art experience and original drawings together with a bit of whimsy. Once again, I turned to Etsy and opened my second shop and decided to name it Pickled Pineapple.

Why Pickled Pineapple? There so much meaning behind that silly little tongue twister of a name. I started think about my own life. The places I have traveled (near and far), where I live, my family, my friends, and all the hats I wear daily and all the wonderful moments I have experienced thus far wearing my hats. Basically, we all wear a bunch of different hats; some are beautiful and others are not as glamorous, but most bring moments of happiness, fun, and laughter (yes, even I have laughed while scrubbing a toilet). All of our hats are what make us who we are because it is how we experience life. The only problem is it life is way too short. So you see, life is like a wonderful pineapple, so sweet and juicy. I just wish we could preserve the delicious bites in a jar.

Yup, bottle up the moments that make you laugh so hard you pee your pants, smile so big it feels like the corners of your mouth really are touching your ears, and all the other moments your heart is filled with pure joy. It is your one and only life to live - live it well and enjoy every sweet pineapple moment.

**I have added a hat! I am now an art teacher ~ exploring the world of imagination and creativity with young children ~ talk about awesome sweet Pickled Pineapple moments! :)
