I have always loved making things. When I was a little girl, I used to hijack my dad's woodshop tools and build ugly, makeshift dollhouses and furniture. And I used to hijack my mom's sewing machine and scrap fabric and make little dolls out of muslin from patterns I traced out of library books (rather poorly, I might add). I loved to make Barbie clothes, but they never quite fit right. My mom bought me water color paints and a pad of water color paper that I filled with terrible pictures of brown mushy watery figures because I had no idea how to use watercolor paint. Then when I got older I learned how to melt wax and use it to create faux stained glass.

All the while I took piano lessons, and eventually joined the middle school band. Can you guess which instrument my band director insisted I play? ...None other than the bassoon, which is also dearly referred to as a farting bed post...

Ever since I can remember, I have always loved creating things to make my world a little more beautiful and interesting. I played my bassoon to pay my way through a college degree, and I can't stop making things or playing music. While I am a professionally trained musician and music teacher, I am still a crafter at heart. Now that I have a daughter, with the love of my life, my fire for making things has been rekindled. I am so excited to finally be able to share many of the things I love with you!

Maybe the things you see here will bring the kid out in you.
