More of an About Me than a Bio, here are a few things that describe who I am:
~~ I have to be creative! Its apparently part of my DNA :).
~~ I like making things with my hands; it almost doesnt matter what as long as its creative and I use my hands.
~~ I like color, fiber, color, fabric, color, odds and ends, and color.
~~ I design purses, hats, sewing patterns and sell them on my website: www.sweetbriarstudio.etsy.com.
~~ I thoroughly enjoy wet-felting and sell my table and home accessories on www.sweetbriarHome.etsy.com.
~~ I have a wonderful husband who does woodworking and encourages my passion, and I have the sweetest dog in the world. We all live in the country near Chapel Hill, NC.

Re: How to Make a Fabric Case for Photo Discs

This is such a great idea for a lot of occasions. I was just thinking it would be great to consolidate all the family photos we've scanned in (from really, really old photos) and give them to our daughter who had almost none of them. Kind of a geneology boxset :). But I also have 2 great girlfriends, college roomies, and we have spent many a rendezvous together. Maybe I'll take all my photos and put together a roomie album. Thanks so much!

This was soooo great! I like the photos but, almost more, the different approach. Not being constrained by how one is 'supposed' to paint or create. Very inspiring. thx!
