Hanging out around crafty people has been my profession for almost 25 years! A lifetime craftoholic, I am a freelance designer, author and consultant and feed my habit daily by playing (er, working) on designs for my blog, Etsy shop, crafters mall and various design teams. Needless to say, there is never a dull moment! I am wife to Jamie, mom to Lauren and guardian to my Shima puppy dog, Tucker. We have 3 kitties, one of whom hangs out with me in the studio all day and I call her Studio Cat.
