I am the co-founder of Shwin&Shwin (shwinandshwin.com).
I primarily have a love of sewing, but with two young kids at home (and one on the way) we find ourselves diving into all kinds of crafts together. I grew up in a family that embraced creativity, and I love passing that on to my kids.
I especially love sharing the love of creating with others, it's the best kind of addiction.
My Favorite Activities
Sewing, working on crafts with my kids, playing "make believe" with my kids (superheros is a favorite)
