I just love to make stuff (if you're reading this, I'm sure you can relate)! I've tried everything from cake decorating to stained glass but there is something about fabric that makes me giddy! I'm a mom to two boys, am married to my best friend, and have an adorably obnoxious miniature parrot (a parrotlet) named Oscar (a.k.a. Cheep). I hope you enjoy my designs, I've had a blast making them!
