Our family lives on a little 10 acre slice of Canadian cottage-country, and when I'm not sketching and sewing up a new design, you'll find me either with my nose in a book or homeschooling my three very active children. As a family, we love spending time in the outdoors whether we're surrounded by green leaves and sparkling lakes or a white blanket of snow.
Creating sewing patterns gives me an outlet for my creativity in a way that doesn't involve crayons and glitter glue (well... usually) . I love coming up with practical, wearable designs that my kids can truly live in.
So... what kind of name is "Pollywoggles"?
On the west end of our 10 acres, sits a thriving beaver pond. While out exploring one day, the kids and I discovered that the tadpoles were out! Since we homeschool, this became a hands-on learning opportunity. I'm not sure the kids understood the whole metamorphosis thing, but my three year old certainly got a kick out of the name "pollywog", which she adapted into "pollywoggles". That day I decided that Pollywoggles was exactly the right name for my designs.
Every season brings more changes to our family, and I look forward to discovering new ways to create fun things for my kids to wear through their adventures to come.
