I have been crafting all of my life. At the age of 5 I remember sitting in my Granny’s garden with Gran and Mom teaching me how to sew clothes for my Barbie and bright pink Troll doll. Both of these strong wonderful women instilled in me the importance of putting love and careful craftsmanship into everything I make.

Now that I have a little Granddaughter who loves to play dress-up, and Grandsons who are wearing out their new homemade backpacks, craft aprons, and bibs, I have been burning up my sewing machine with new projects. And recently my daughter-in-law asked me to make photography props for her new business, so I’ve learned all over again to knit and crochet.

So there! I have more ideas than time, but my motto is to try to create or learn something new every day. And now I’ll try to share those creations with you, the Etsy world. It is truly a beautiful place and I look forward to being part of it! Please don’t hesitate to send me ideas, comments, or questions. It really keeps me out of trouble!!!
