I live on an orange ranch with my husband and two small children. Keeping them happy is a full-time job, but I still manage to squeeze in some time to knit or draw or sew whenever I can. Even though the days of crafting away an entire afternoon (ok, entire day) are gone, the joy of giving my kids something I made by hand makes up for it.I love the challenge of designing something and ripping it out or starting over and trying again until I make it right. I really, really love to say, "I made that!"One day I plan to write and illustrate some clever children's books, and maybe some strange art books for adults.
