I love making things that are cute, whimsical, often useful, many times cuddly, nearly always from repurposed materials, and a sometimes a bit unexpected. Making brings me joy and a sense of usefulness – something that I can do for myself, but more often in order to bring happiness to others. 

For the past 10+ years, my business mostly involved me producing products to sell at craft, vintage, and art shows. In 2020 I am planning to take a few risks to diversify my income sources by offering education to others, knowledge from my experiences, and stretching myself to design some new, useful products.
