I love designing silly items that will make people smile. I really love hats--fun, goofy hats.

Making hats for Halos of Hope.

4 How do you jump-start your creativity?

I'm always thinking of new designs, and I often bounce ideas off my family.

The Halloween season. I love dress-up, cooler weather and candy corn.

About 10-12.

I adore handmade quilts. I have a couple made by family that are just amazing.

Scraps of paper with design ideas on them, scissors and a couple WIPs.
