About My Family (the people I craft for):

  • Nick - (age 24, husband) Environment Biologist. He loves Star Wars and Spiderman
  • Debra - (Mom) Loves bags and purses. She is also very crafty, but doesn't have the time. She collects anything you give her. She loves vibrant prints, and natural colors.
  • Persephone - (age 1, niece) A little princess, pink and dresses are a must. She needs easy to grow in clothes.
  • Maribell - (age 2, niece)Our little all smiles, tomboy. She is always wearing a dress, but would rather be playing in  the dirt. Her nickname is ladybug, and we always give her things that relate.
  • Kelahna - (age 3, niece) A girly princess. She is small for her age (2T). Loves art, drawing and cooking. Her favorite thing right now is Elmo.
  • Billy - (age 4, nephew) Always on the move, watch out because he is sneaky. He loves cartoons and video games.
  • Balin - (age 5, nephew) The tough little boy. Loves tie-dye anything. He loves to try and get away with everything (and so cute he usually does get away with it). Loves trucks and super heroes, and Star Wars.
  • Timmy - (age 9, nephew) Loves comic books and everything that goes with that. He is a great wrestler. Enjoys being outside exploring.
  • Ariel - (age 9, niece) Half girl, half tomboy. Always catch her with paper and pencil drawing something. She has quite the collection of purses too. She has to keep up with all the boy cousins and does a good job at it too.
  • Tristram - (age 10, nephew) He is a very smart child. Always reading or playing the piano. He loves sports, especially soccer, but baseball and now wrestling are favorites too.
  • Zachary - (age 11, nephew) The helper, even when you least expect it, he is there to help out. He is also a wrestler.
  • I also craft for other family, but anything goes for them. Anything I might like, they might like.
