Creating things that are simple, useful and unique is what I like to do. I love working with fabrics, papers, strings, plants; items that have texture, color and fragrance. What is even more enjoyable to me, is to be able to empower others with the knowledge and skills to create things for themselves.
As a wife, a mother of three wonderful children, and as a yoga instructor, I strive to find balance in life by incorporating the simple things around me. Taking time out from the busy world to create, ponder and share is a big part of that, when done in balance. My hope is to bring to you a variety of items and information that you can use and enjoy.
