Splendid Little Stars -- Charter Member



I’m Margaret, creator of Splendid Little Stars.

I’ve always loved crafts.  In fact when I was studying zoology in college, I would often be reading craft books instead of studying vectors and matrices or organic chemistry.  Don’t get me wrong.  I love science and especially nature.  In fact a friend of mine and I ran our own kids’ camp for a few years—art and crafts, science, nature, music, and movement (dance).  I had a science club one summer for kids in the neighborhood.  I’ve taught a lot of nature classes to kids over the years.  Fun!

I love all crafts (well, almost!).  At present in my shop I’m focusing on tie dye and dyeing of fabric in general.  Outside of the shop, I enjoy teaching the tie dyeing process.  If I decide to revitalize my Sparkly Park shop, I will have jewelry and paper products—my other love.  And I love photography!  That’s one of the joys of blogging—sharing photos! 

At home I live with my husband, son, and 2 very sweet kitties.  My daughter lives in Asheville, NC.  Both my children have artsy/crafty side businesses—my daughter photographs weddings; my son makes leather watch straps.          

Things I love:  nature, photography, cooking (sometimes), gardening, hiking, bicycling, exploring new places, friends, laughter, and making artsy-crafty things.

I have a hard time reigning in my crafty interests, too. I think that science and arts are a perfect mix for life!

I hear ya! It's too hard to pick one arty interest! I love your tie dyes, but wouldn't it be fun to do a challenge one time where we have to make something outside of our normal media???!
