Give a brief product description.
I make just about everything, or at least have tried. Currently I'm making jewelry, hair accessories, vintage looking aprons, re-styled t-shirts and upcycled feed bag shopping bags and pouches.

How did you get started?
I started sewing when I was a kid, and would make skirts, peg jeans, hem pants, etc. to make clothes fit the way I wanted. I started making jewelry and hair accessories out of frustration when I could not find the things I wanted for myself. I have recently begun to look at the things I use and recycle and throw away on a daily basis, and my new passion is trying to find a use for those items.

Where do you get your inspiration?
Everywhere. A trip to a favorite store, like Betsy Johnson, can fuel my imagination for days, as can vintage clothes shopping or even a trip to Goodwill.

Describe your workspace/workroom.
I finally have a real studio! We have converted one of our extra bedrooms into "my" room with red walls, tons of shelves, a chandelier, cutting table and room for everything - almost. It's amazing how quickly you can fill up a 10 x 10 space!

What has been your favorite winter holiday gift to make or receive?
I once received a gorgeous aqua blue resin trivet embedded with broken sea shells in it that I adored, and was eventually broken during a move and rendered irreparable.
