    She's more of a really crafty hobbyist. No website but a huge variety of things she makes. I tried my hand at the egg dying but not really my thing. I do cut a mean snowflake tho.

    She does some brilliant work on those eggs, I bet she's pretty awesome at her other crafts, too! I wish I had some awesome crafting skill; that'd be nice to keep busy with. :)

    @uzisuzuki she likes to stay busy but always manages to have time to come see the flock. I've tried to get her to join byc like birdmans family but to no avail.
