Clean and simple design thrills me. I make things for home, for play, for gifts or for fun. More than that, I love showing others how to make them, too!  I find peace and happiness in making, but understand the challenges of finding the time as a busy mother of three. Wanting happy making in my life inspired me to start writing this blog and then, to leave my life in investment banking behind. Stay a while and let me bring a little of my happy handmade life to you!

Warmly, Anne
