My name is Tina. When I was a kid I would watch my mom make outfits for my sister and I with the fabric we got to pick out a the store. I am pretty sure that is were my love for fabric came from. I made my first quilt about 11 years ago when my dad was sick with cancer. I found quilting calming and it helped me get through that tough time. I am now busy with our 3 very active kids and still find quilting calming. It's how I settle down at night and how I start off my morning. I started making custom initial quilts about 8 years ago and sold them on ebay and around my town. They have been a good seller for me. I decided to bring my quilts to Etsy and have been happy with all the wonderful people I have had dealings with. I hope to continue my fun for many years with Etsy. http://www.etsy.com/shop/tmkriz
I am a woman who has found her Canadian heart thawed by the spirit and grace of the Mexican people living in the town I now call home. Cocktail Veils blend the mystique of the lacey Spanish mantilla with the vibrancy and playfulness of Mexico. Through much laughter and some interesting language issues, doña Gloria and I have arrived at the current design of the veils. Our partnership has enriched the lives of us both and resulted in an item that we are very pleased to offer for sale.
Hi! I'm Heather, designer of Pop Heart Press - a line of educational art designed to engage children in learning, introduce shapes, colors, animals, geography, numbers & letters, and pretty your house! I am a former first grade teacher turned part-time graphic designer/part-time stay at home mom of twin boys, Jack and Logan, and married to my high school sweetheart, Kit.
Pop Heart Press has been built upon my experience as an elementary school teacher, childhood growing up in my parents' printshop and love of interior design. As a little girl, I worked after school at my parents' printshop, producing and packaging printed products. It had always been a dream of mine to work with children, so after graduating from the University of Texas, I began my career as a first grade teacher.
Three years later, after relocating from Austin back to my hometown, I was searching for a career that would feed my creative soul. I began working for my parents once again as a graphic designer and finally found my passion!
A short while after the twins were born, I was shopping for modern educational art to decorate their nursery and playroom. Unsuccessful in my quest, I began to design and print artwork for them myself and not long after that, Pop Heart Press was born!
In addition to educational posters, flash cards, and book labels, I also offer custom stationery, invitations and business cards! If you have a colorful, modern style, and an idea of something you'd like custom created for you, just let me know and I'll design it just for you!
