Leslie will talk about herself in the 3rd person. Okaaay. Leslie has always enjoyed making things from a very early age when she made cute animal figurines from smooth beach stones. Her first paying gig was at age 12 when she was commissioned by a local shop owner to draw a logo. She is an accomplished seamstress in the area of home decor with a degree in Interior Design from the prestigious Design Institute of San Diego. She has an uncanny ability to look at something and know that it will fit into the space allotted--you know like fitting everything into a car trunk or packing a box. She loves all things shiny, tiny and colorful and saves miscellaneous bits to make into other things like fun jewelry. Her motto has always been "don't throw that out, I can make something with it!"
