Who sparked your love of making?
Making has always been a way to keep my hands busy and my mind occupied. I have an anxiety disorder, so it’s always been a safe place for me to focus my energy, take time to check in with myself, and have the mental space that I need to be a good wife, mom, and boss back in my ‘real life’.

What is your favorite product or piece you’ve made lately?
I’ve been playing around with negative space in my geometric earrings designs for a long time, which is my comfort zone – but I’ve been playing around with these kind of lace-inspired floral pieces lately, which have really been a wonderful change of pace. My favorites would be my walnut floral hoops.
What inspires you during the holiday season?
For me, the holidays are about turning your attention inwards toward yourself and your family, so that coziness and closeness is what gives me the most nostalgic/inspiring feelings. I just love the crispness in the air!
What other vendor are you excited to see/shop this season?
I’m so excited that Daisyhead Florals will be there helping everyone look like a queen!
What is your favorite holiday food or recipe and why?
Mexican bread pudding is one of the few sweets my husband gets really excited about, so I love making it for him in the winter…
Join us for a unique spin on craft fairs where you can craft some of your own holiday goodies. Make a commitment to the environment, your wallet, and creative diversity by purchasing handmade gifts from local entrepreneurs this season.
Saturday, December 7th from 10 a.m to 3 p.m. on the South end of the Sierra 2 Center
This event features 2 meeting halls and a patio tent filled with talented, hand-picked vendors selling creative and unique gifts and goods.
In the brand new Craft Tent, choose mom or auntie’s favorite colors to apply to a water-marbled scarf with the Craftopolis Craft Club. Bring shirts to print for your friends and family or make your own card or gift bag using a lino-block print at Tenacious Goods’ booth. Design a one-of-a-kind floral masterpiece with Daisyhead Florals.
The Holiday Gifts & Goods is an intimate and relaxing way to find unique gifts and personal treasures for you and yours… But all this great shopping and visiting can wear you out! Treat yourself to brewed tea and pastries by The Novel Tea as well as espresso and coffee beverages from Urbane Coffee.
