When is a door not a door? When it's ajar!

I have been making things in one form or another since I was a young child.
When I was 4 years old, instead of toys I would play for hours with long costume jewelry necklaces my mother had. (also the beginning of my love and fascination of vintage and costume jewelry).
I would put the necklaces on the wood floor of my bedroom and swirl them around making patterns and designs out of them over and over again.

My Grandmother on my fathers side sewed, often making my brother and I clothing. I can recall wearing polyester pants she made me in the third grade (It was the 70's we ALL wore polyester then). She taught me how to sew on her machine and a love of sewing has stayed with me into adulthood,

I love the magic that happens when you turn one thing into something else, or combine things to make a new object.

    Owner, Maker, Designer, Curator

    Hello _____! My Grandfather had a way of saying hello to his grandchildren that was always so happy. He would boom out Hello Lisa! You could feel the ! at the end. I hope I can make you feel as welcome even if you can't hear my greeting

  • Little Brown Dog

    Cuteness Consultant

    Little Brown - a 13 year old Vizsla mix. She is a great inspiration but a terrible influence. She has mastered putting herself back under the covers in bed, and is such a nap expert that sometimes I can't resist joining her for a snooze.

  • My Husband

    Heavy Lifter And Fabric Picker Outer

    My Husband (who looks nothing like this picture he drew...and he's not a pirate). He has endured many the fabric store and craft shop with me and possesses a wonderful color and design sense that has helped me immensely.

  • The Cats

    Cat Toy Testers

    While only one cat is pictured here, be assured that there are several on staff. They test all the cat toy prototypes for durability, kickability and chewability.
