Hello and welcome. I’m Stefanie: Born & bred in San Francisco, a woman of many hairstyles, and a Harry Potter nerd. I now live in the suburbs of the East Bay in the Bay Area, CA with my husband and our two daughters.
I used to teach fifth grade. After our youngest daughter was born, I became a stay-at-home mom. She was a demanding baby, crying all the time unless I carried her. I could get nothing done nor even sleep. My poor husband, who had slept on the couch for the first, three months, would come home after a 50 mi commute and after picking up our preschooler to a wife who would tell him, “I am not happy.” My smart husband, knowing I was stressed out and absolutely frazzled, suggested I get a hobby. Enter knitting, my first love.
I have been knitting for 10 years now. I was known for the slouchy beanies I would wear on a cold, foggy day in SF. I then branched out to sock knitting and now, a big priority this 2018 is garments, mainly sweaters.
Since moving to the suburbs, I got into card making. I wanted to sprinkle a little sunshine during a relative or friend’s birthday. My cards have evolved from simple stamping to layers of 3-D distress.
Sewing has also entered my life and has expanded my world of crafting. I’m still a beginner and have been obsessed with zipper pouches because of the fun choices in fabric prints out there. This year I plan to broaden my repertoire to clothes, something I’m very excited about.
I am honored whenever I have visitors here and delighted when a reader decides my blog is worthy for his/her reading list. I read every comment and respond back to you either through WordPress if you are a fellow user, on your blog, or through email. I don’t mind if you share one of my posts to another platform through one of the share buttons. Please ask first if you’re going to use a photo of mine on your website and please give me a nod of credit, especially when you are inspired to try something similar from a design I have created. Thank you and have great day.
