I just like to slosh paint around the place, cut stuff up & glue it down.
I remember as a 4 year old at kindergarten discovering drawing & it hitting me like lightning. I've been obsessed with all things arty & collecting art materials ever since then.
As a young girl I coveted stationery. My father brought me back stickers & novelty erasers from Japan. As a teen I discovered rubber stamping as an art form. I love mail art!
In my 20's I discovered scrapbooking. I had a successful tenure as a widely published scrapbooker, on several design teams & co-authored 2 scrapbooking books.
In my 30's it was mixed media that became my passion & I'm not sure it will ever change. Evolve yes, but remain I am certain of that.
I love arty mess. I love tiny morsels of pretty patterned papers & vintage fabrics. I love ephemera, handwriting & scribbles. I love painting! And I love sweet whimsical characters.
So, I made canvases, put them on my blog & they all sold. I opened up my ETSY store & haven't looked back.
I used to create in one very overcrowded room upstairs in my home but recently I moved my sewing area & my business office into a new room downstairs in my home & my painting studio now takes over our double garage.
I have been squeezing all the bits required to run my little business into all the tiny cracks in my life between raising my 5 little children with my husband & all that goes along with that AND doing part time graphics work from home.
Now that all my youngest is heading to pre-school I will will be working full-time creating art/ pattern & illustration both on a freelance basis and for my own little ETSY shop too.
So there you have it! Thats my crazy story. Welcome. xo

Just me, I make the stuff, I photograph the stuff & do all the graphics, I process my orders [thank YOU!] and I go to the post office. And its my very own tiny little dream that I am living. Welcome to my shop! xo
