Why I Do What I Do

Some days it can be tough to be an artist. You get so much criticism on your prices, your style, your materials, etc. It can be very disheartening.

My craft is my joy. It’s my therapy. It’s the thing that calms me and makes me so happy to work on. I am inspired by just everything to want to create create CREATE. I love making my Cuddle Buddies and Baby Scrap Dragons. They just make me smile. But I don’t make them just for myself.

It’s such an amazing feeling for me when someone falls in love with one of my scrap animals and wants to adopt it. That moment when they pick it up and their eyes are shining.. it’s the best! And I love working on commissions. It’s a sad fact that I can’t be there most of the time because my Cuddle Buddies are shipping to Florida or California or once even to Taiwan. But it makes my day to receive feedback from my customers.

Recently I finished a Jack Frost commission from “Rise of the Guardians“. I was super excited about this commission because that’s one of my favorite movies!
