The Author

I’m a Brooklyn girl currently pursuing her creative dreams in Philadelphia with her beloved Husband and their two fur babies, Bishop the very vocal cat and Cornetto, our raggedy and happy shih tzu. Persistently trying to put this Art degree to good use by making cute things in my home studio that I like to call Wonderland. I currently have an online store selling my work at shop.whimsicaljoy.com and over at Etsy.

I’m pretty handy with a crochet hook, knitting needles and sewing machine. I’m a bit of a yarn snob and I live for pretty floral fabric. Mint might as well be my signature color. I really love to cook and would prefer to learn how to make international dishes instead of going to a restaurant.
