Give a brief product description.
Handmade funky and functional items. unique one of a kind items, upcycled and new materials.
How did you get started?
I started sewing in second grade and had my first business back then, selling tooth pillows. I have been pretty crafty my whole life, and I enjoy making a wide variety of things in all kinds of mediums. When I found out about Etsy it seemed easier than sitting outside in the Texas heat all day and it has turned out to be a great way to sell online. I do work a regular full time job, so this business is like stress relief and a way to earn money to buy more supplies.
Where do you get your inspiration?
From all over the place! I don't have a muse per se, but I find inspiration in many forms. I only wish i had time to daydream more and play more!

Describe your workspace/workroom.
It's pretty cluttered and sort of organized. I actually just took over a 2nd room in our house to have more workspace. Thankfully my husband is very accommodating and supportive! I now have one room for sewing and one room for 'other' crafting. The Other room would include all the weird junk and stuff I have accumulated and saved for use in some kind of imagined project. The Sewing room has a wall of shelves which is stacked high with my big ol' fabric stash.
What has been your favorite winter holiday gift to make or receive?
This is a tough question! I always have a hard time picking favorites...
