I try to "reduce, reuse, recycle" in all aspects of my life, including my art, where you'll find twistie ties, broken toys, bottle caps and more.

Thank you!
In 2013, through efforts at my studio and direct donations, I was able to raise $1,000 for The Water Project, $380 for the All-American Soap Box Derby, and $120 for Life Is Good No Matter What (LIGNMW). This year my goal is to raise more money for LIGNMW and donate 150 7"x9" knitted rectangles to Warm Up Akron. With the help of other area knitters, so far we have donated more than 200!
