I’ve been crafting every since daycare when I won a drawing contest! I think I won a dime, or was it a quarter I can’t remember! Maybe I’m telling my age. I think I’ve tried just about everything within my reach except crochet which I think I wouldn’t have the patience for!

Authentic Arts: Glamorous. Colorful. Natural!

I haven’t talked at all yet about my adored (and recently deceased) studio helper. Bunnita “Pisky” Casique Hoople was the best pet I’ve ever had, the most wonderful bunny I’ve ever met, the best friend we could have asked for. She passed away this spring after 7 years of faithful bunny companionship to me and my husband and she is sorely missed. I’m really glad that I chose her as the emblem for my business, it’s a nice way to remember her by.
