The life and times of an overactive mind...

Hey Ya'll!
My name is Michelle aka Hypernoodle, I am a mom with a wonderful son. Just in case you're wondering....because everyone always asks....

The definition of Hypernoodle is "Overactive mind". Noodle is actually my son's nickname from birth because he can't sit still! My husband says I am actually the noodle and he added on the "Hyper" part. Thus, "Hypernoodle" was born as a way to describe my overactive mind that can't sit still and is constantly moving wildly pulling out creativeness! My son has Aspergers which is on the Autism Spectrum and therefore interprets everything literally. So his interpretation when he was little of "Hypernoodle" was a wet lasagna noodle that was spazzing out and can't be still...I told him he was spot on! Thus, please enjoy our drawing of Mr. (wet lasagna) Noodle on the shop homepage.

I have been crafting and sewing since I was 7 years old when my aunt taught me how to crochet. I was hooked (no pun intended) but wavered after a botched miniskirt sewing project in Home-Ec that produced a C-. But thanks to my aunt, I realized that there is great pleasure and success in creativity, even with the projects that you don't think turn out perfect. They become a learning experience in your creative journey and only enhance your work overall. Anyone who makes handmade knows...it is not only about the finished project, but the process it takes to get there.

I have worked in what seems like a million mediums: paint, polymer clay, wood, scrapbooking/paper crafting, dollhouse miniatures, oh the list goes on and on! (And I adore them all) but my love for sewing took the lead because I get a complete rush putting a stitch in two pieces of fabric. Every time I sit down to work on a project, a lot of time, love and attention goes into each and every item. With handmade, I love the fact that even if you make more than one of something, no two are ever the same!
I am a self-admitted Fabricoholic (my name is Michelle and I am a Fabricoholic...if you can identify with this, everyone in unison now--"Hi Michelle") and my husband teases me mercilessly about my stash--but the way I justify it is that #1: there are worse things I could be addicted to--and #2: I NEED it!

I love sewing all kinds of items, especially purses and accessories! & my "Hypernoodle" always has a million different things I want to sew! But I am a true plushie junkie and proud of it! Making plushies is soooo much fun! My "plushie love" has taken a back seat to my purses, so when they come around (the plushies) it is far and between, but well worth the wait! Let's just say that I'm glad I don't have the desire to make shoes!!!!!

I hope you enjoy browsing and buying in my shop. Feel free to convo me at any time or e-mail direct hypernoodle1 [!at] gmail.com

From my overactive mind to your hands...
And thanks again for stopping by...

**Anyone who has ever had more than 1 creative thought running around in their head has a "Hypernoodle"...if you can identify, welcome to my world!

    I am a one-woman design and creative show~ I design, cut, construct and sew each and every item in my shop myself in my home studio. It is a joy and a pleasure that I truly enjoy with every fiber of my being.
