"...let the beautiful stuff out."

"We are cups, constantly and quietly being filled. The trick is knowing how to tip ourselves and let the beautiful stuff out."
--Ray Bradbury

...and so after years of gentle pushing from my family and friends, I finally "let the beautiful stuff out." From a young age, I have been encouraged to imagine, to dream, and to enjoy creating with my hands. I am also surrounded by creative people. My mother taught me how to crochet and sew. She also drew and sketched when she was younger and introduced me and my sister to the world of art. My father enjoyed making frames for my cross stitched pieces--it was also a great excuse for him to use his power tools! My sister, a talented knitter and artist, is my best friend and constant companion to museum visits and other crafty venues (We are just like Niles and Frasier from the "Frasier" sitcom). One of my uncles is a photographer, baker, and avid traveler. Almost everyone I have in my life is creative in some way.

I take pride in what I make and everything here is made with love.

Enjoy your visit to my shop. Browse and linger for as long as you like. Come back as often as you want.
