Brief Bio, News in Your Life, etc:
live in one of Chicago's most diverse neighborhoods, Rogers Park, where I am a short walk away from Lake Michigan's beachfront. On walks with my dog, Archie, I often dream up ideas for my knitted, crocheted, and embroidered creations and work through design challenges. The trick is to remember my inspirations and resolutions until I get home.

I believe that it's important (and fun!) to celebrate holidays and special occasions with quality, long-lasting, easy-to-store decorations. I truly enjoy making these items for my shop and I fall a bit in love with each of my creations.

I'm a born and bred multi-tasker, so my typical workspace is a picture of controlled chaos. The project of the day is on needles, hooks or fabric, my computer and phone are ready for email and Facebook breaks, the television is on catching up on shows or with Food Network in the background, and a book is open to read during commercials. Of course, my favorite drink of seltzer water with fresh lime and Archie lounging on his pillow are also ever-present.

My Favorite Crafts To Do: All sorts of embroidery, cross-stitch, punch needle, knitting, cooking, holiday ornaments, painting, crocheting, polymer clay beginner, picking up sewing again
Crafts I Want To Learn: beaded flowers

Current and/or All Time Favorite Bands: U2, The Killers, Pet Shop Boys, Depeche Mode, Duran Duran, Love a mix between current (or semi-current) alternative rock, 80s new wave, traditional rock, classical, really, a little bit of everything is on my ipod
Current and/or All Time Favorite Books: Love to read!, memoirs of both celebrities and "normal" people, classic fiction, non-fiction craft books, cookbooks, occasional chick lit for flights, books that transport me into another culture
Current and/or All Time Favorite Movies: Brat pack movies are my fave nostalgia watches - I really wanted to be Molly Ringwald when I was younger, committed to seeing all Best Picture Oscar nominated films prior to the Oscars each year, documentaries of all sorts - from profiles of people to political to educational, mobster movies intrigue me, fun comedies like all of Will Ferrill's movies
Current and/or All Time Favorite TV Shows: Bravo TV is the best!
