< continued from previous page What inspires you in your designs? Obviously I’m inspired by nature ... as well as old children’s books, folk tales and sometimes song lyrics. Lots of things inspire me. What do you love the most about having your own business? I love the freedom to do whatever I want to do, as well as being able to satisfy my creative urge and make a living from it. I also love that I can work from home and be there for my kids. What is your favourite item in your store right now and why? My favourite piece at the moment is my tiny doll, wearing a cloak. I loved making her and spent hours perfecting her face and little dress. Looking at her evokes a quiet sadness (in a good way). I’m very tempted to keep her. What has been your biggest highlight? I can’t say there has been one major hightlight. I just love the fact that I’m doing exactly what I always dreamed of doing and I have a feeling that the best is yet to come.

Right: Barn owl. This serene little owl would be quite at home perched on a shelf or window sill where she can watch over things, or nestled amongst the pillows of a little person who loves animals. Price $82.
