tiaWhen most people go to the store, they look at things and wonder what they can use it for. When I go to the store I look at things and wonder how I can tear it up and use it to make something else. I’ve always tried to do most things my own way and strived to be an individual and put that individualistic flair into what I make. I come from a family background thats just as creative as I am; from my great grandmother who has made dolls of all but the last two presidents and their wives, to my mother who is always helping me come up with different ideas for my creations, to my boyfriends mother who makes some of the coolest things ever! I look to them for creative inspiration and ideas as well as everything around me.
