Get to Know

My grandparents owned a flower shop when I was growing up, so it seemed natural for my parents to name me Heather when I was born. This led to a bit of confusion as I grew older; one day as my mom was helping out grandma told her to put some heather in a basket, at which point my 4-year-old self started crying and begging not to be put in a basket and given to strangers.

Now I know the difference between heather the flower and Heather myself. I'm a grown up Heather now in my early 20's. I'm happily married to my amazing husband who actually has an even deeper love of art than I do. We have a son now, who was born in 2012, and are currently expecting a daughter in February 2015.

I've been into arts and crafts ever since I was little. That same grandmother who I thought was going to put me in a basket also introduced me to the world of sewing when I was in the fourth grade. Ever since then I have been sewing in addition to the other crafting I do.

Recently, when showing family and friends pendants I had made, they all made comments that they would buy such a thing. So I thought "Why not?" and here I am.

    This was a custom bottle and one of my favorites. This bottle has a rolled scroll with the scripture Matthew 7:7-8 from the Bible printed on it inside.

    This is a small wooden box I decorated to match my Magic card deck. I have several decks and now a few decorated boxes like this to match. This is one of my favorites; I love the way it turned out. I have not sold any of these boxes--they were made by myself for myself.
