Describe your aesthetic in three words:
Three words is never enough to describe anything! But I love the words Vibrant, Fun, and Practical to describe my shop's style.
Who (or what) is an inspiration for your pincushions?
I love a pincushion that no one else is going to have. Rare things make for special finds. Not everything that I'm am in love with will work itself into a pincushion, but I am constantly inspired by vintage quilt appliques, my food and flower gardens and a love of all things cute and unique. I want people to look at what I make and say, "Hey! That's cool!! Where'd you get that?"
Do you sew for yourself?
I do sew for myself occasionally, but I mostly sew for others. Like most crafters I have a raging case of stash fever. I like to do felt applique and embroidery, plus I have a healthy addiction to Moda fabrics which I continue to add to. It's not that I don't have a desire to make something for ME, it's more the fact that I really love giving away something I made and having that person love it even more than I do. Warm fuzzies always make people happy ^_^
