Scrappy Hats and Naturally Grey Hair

Hello from deep within an unruly pile of fabric scraps. It is the time of year when my accumulated fabric scraps threaten to take over the world, or at least my studio. I have been fighting back and slowly…very slowly, turning them into hats. I have managed to make a grand total of three scrappy…

Think Pink

Hello from pretty and chilly Lunenburg. Hope the world is beginning to feel festive wherever you are. I have been cozily tucked away in my little doll house (aka my studio) making hats.

Following My Heart, My Latest Business Strategy

I had a bit of an epiphany the other day. Well, my friend, Aimee, actually hit me over the head with my epiphany, but that’s what friends are for, right? She surprised me with a visit, so I put down my work and we went for a walk. I must have really needed to talk…
