Give a brief product description.
Chester and Lola offers jewelry, cards, and gifts for people who love birds. Every item either features birds or is bird-related in some way.

How did you get started?
I got fed up with looking at great handmade stuff and thinking "I could do that" -- but then never doing it. So one day I just said "Okay, that's it -- just do it already," and that's when I got started.

Where do you get your inspiration?

I get inspiration from my two fantastic parakeets named Chester and Lola. They're so beautiful and playful and affectionate. I also read lots of craft magazines to get new ideas and techniques to play with.

Describe your workspace/workroom.

My work space is at home, in a spare bedroom. It's got a window seat as well as a little sofa bed; both great places to relax and take a little break. The room is filled to the brim with art supplies and projects -- keeping it organized can be a challenge...

What has been your favorite winter holiday gift to make or receive?

For this winter I'm busy making wine charms for holiday parties -- they're so much fun to make!
