Well, I can hardly believe it, but today is my 5 year Anniversary of starting Hen and Chick!
It all started when my son was six months old and I started getting antsy for a creative outlet during his naps. All I really had was a drawer full of fabric and a head full of ideas.
This little business has brought me so much joy, and I have learned so much along the way. The most meaningful thing, though, has been the human connections I've made along the way. Thank you all for your support and sharing your stories with me!

Last weekend, we took the opportunity of a long parent-teacher conference weekend to sneak out of town to McCall, Idaho which is about a 2 and a half hour drive outside of town. We had a wonderful relaxing time. Here is a summary of our trip in pictures.
One of my favorite places on earth is in my little studio. It's where I create all of my handmade cloth dolls, stuffed animals, and develop my PDF patterns. I work in a spare room of my house, and it is packed to the gills. It is seldom neat as a pin, but usually at least partly tidy.
I usually have company, and my company usually brings his toys.
Things get a little stacked up sometimes. It's hard to have room for all of my inventory, ongoing and current projects, fabric, stuffing, packing supplies and everything else in a ten by ten area! But I shoe-horn it all in somehow.
I am seldom without tunes of some kind (okay, I admit to an inordinate amount of Journey) and I often stare out the window at the trees in my yard when I take a tea break.
Thanks for stopping by the Hen and Chick Studio for a visit!
Come back soon!
