You’ve come to this page to learn more about me and my work at Kittyloaf Designs, or at least I hope that’s why you’re here!
I started doing beadwork as a teenager after remembering a brief flirtation with a beading loom as a child. For a while I was trying everything – peyote stitching over small objects, clumsy brick stitch designs, and I even tried my hands at French beaded flowers which led me to the knowledge that working with wire is not for me.
Then I wanted to learn to sew. I was better at beading, but I didn’t know anything about sewing. I took a class to better learn the basics and have been learning all the time since. I sew most of my new clothes, plus make awesome accessories. I recently bought a serger as well and I love it!
Later on I started working with polymer clay and resin and I occasionally do a little cross stitch as well. I also learned to knit and crochet and I cannot get enough of crochet! In the first few months of crocheting, I did 3 blankets, two of which were queen sized!
Besides all of my crafting, I also went to school for graphic design and I also sell crafting supplies like sewing and beading patterns, and handmade beads.
If you see something you want, don’t be afraid to send me an email here and make me an offer. I might accept it! I’m also open to taking on some custom projects.
I live in Lancaster, CA, with my long term boyfriend and our two dogs.
Kittyloaf Designs is so named in memory of my cat Lucky. Though I only had him for about three years, he made a very lasting impression on me and is greatly missed. You can read more about Lucky here.
