Tell us about your family.
I have been married for 23 years to my high school stalker..haha I gave him a merry chase to say the least.
We have 2 sons ages 25 and 22 and 3 grand children.
Where do you live?
I live in Constantia, NY, right in the center of NY State on Onieda Lake.
How did you choose your design name?
I chose my design name trying to put a clever twist on it. If this wasn’t a digital hobby, I would definitely
have scraps thrown around. It is a little long when typing out but I have been using it for 11 years so I think
I will keep it for a bit longer.
When (and why) did you start designing?
I started designing in 2006 out of neccesity, raising 2 children on one income, (we chose to have me stay home) things can get tight. Boys are always outgrowing their clothes, sports gear, had to pay for that trombone for the youngest, just basic living expenses, I just couldn’t justify spending even little amounts of money. I came across a Yahoo group called Stepping Stones, that taught how to design papers and elements and the rest is history!
What inspires you?
When I think of what inspires me, I have to say I am first inspired by color. I am not usually a “theme” designer. I like to pick out a color palette..look at it for a while and feel what comes to the surface…how do the colors make me feel? What do they remind me of? I then give it a name and start designing my collection.
