I learned how to sew, knit, crochet, cook and bake at a young age, surrounded by all the creative women in my family! Nowadays, I'm just addicted to creating. I am also a returning student working on my second career as some kind of designer/illustrator. I dream of designing patterns for textiles and paper goods, and traveling the world with my camera.
