I’ve been obsessed with names and their meanings since 1983. My mom gave me the baby name book she got in the hospital when she had one of my older brothers. I remember being amazed at the idea that names had definitions. That seemed very significant to me and a vital aspect of choosing a name for a baby (or a character for writers). After getting that first book, I started collecting baby name books.
In 2007, I got to write my own baby name book, Baby Names Made Easy. I'm still pinching myself! After the flurry of book publishing duties slowed down, I put my art skills to work and decided it was time to open an online shop and start sharing my name crafts. I have been overwhelmed with the response I've gotten and count my blessings everyday.
Thank you so much for taking the time to look through my shop!
