I’m a Handmade Artist which is a fancy way of saying I create craft items to use and sometimes sell. I started my creative path young, cutting and sewing bits of fabric handed to me by my mother. I loved learning new crafts and added knitting, crocheting, wood working, jewelry making, cross-stitching, and the list goes on.
Recently, my children and home have been my biggest inspiration to create things we love, but it is only so big and there are so many things to create. Which is why I decided to share some of my creations with the world.
I love to design and craft works of art that warm the heart and tickle the soul. I love what I do. If you are looking for fun handmade gifts to make, I write about some of my favorite ideas below.
