Sea of Tales: Even if the schools I went to prepared me for something completely different, only now I can say I can’t wait to get up early in the morning and do what I do! I love making clothes and bags and hope you will enjoy the things in my shop

Once Again Recycled Designs: My name is Megan and I am an Interior Designer. The inspiration behind my creations is coming up with unique, functional designs that make life a little easier and saving the world…well sort of… I wanted to find a way for my designs to stand out and also to do my part by recycling. So I decided to take on the challenge of designing with 2nd hand finds at thrift stores, garage sales, and yes, even the garbage. “One mans trash is another mans treasure” I have discovered pillow cases make great bags, linens can be chopped up and sewn back together as baby blankets, pillows, coasters, placemats…the possibilities are virtually endless. I have two amazing children who also inspire me create fun kids stuff. So…will see how it goes…
Tim’s Sally: Painting for me, is a nostalgic descent back to my childhood – a time when dolls were a huge part of my life. Today is not altogether different. I think of my paintings as play sets where I dress my dolls up and create their own environment. Sometimes this “land” is a sweet setting of animals, nature, and innate innocence while others are captivated by a mysterious engulfing darkness. I can relate.
Memories of playtime and my special collection of “neat stuff” that I kept in a wooden trunk made specially for me by my uncle were treasures to me. Baby doll heads, vintage dolls, sweet scents of everything yummy are areas of great inspiration. Artists such as Mark Ryden, Joe Sorren, and Casey O’Connell also capture my heart with a sweet tenderness encompassing subtle moments of time we all would like to revisit; a dream state so unique one could only wish to take part.
