I startet crafting around the time my hands managed to use large sticks without stabbing them into my eyes.

I'm a mom of two, a wife to my one and a fan of many crafts.
I startet my "a puppet a week"-project in 2012. Every week I create a new handpuppet around a monthly theme. Some puppets are available as patterns already.
