About Helen

I live with my husband and our identical twin girls. I grew up in England, but moved to the US 20 years ago and am now a bizarre mix of British and American.

I come from a long line of creative and crafty people who have inspired me to make instead of buy.

I love to plan (anything really but especially crafts and travel) and many of my children’s crafts are inspired by nature and the seasonal flow.

I love picnics, wine, stinky cheese and (non-camping aspects of) the great outdoors – which all seem to go together very well.
