Meet the Family
When I’m not sewing for Buddy & Bean or at my church day job, you can usually find me playing video games, playing Legos with the kids, or playing Lego video games with the kids. My Kindle and Kindle phone app are my constant companion - I’ve been devouring all of Patrick Rothfuss’s books lately, and can’t wait for the third Kingkiller Chronicle. When I’m sewing, podcasts are my jam - load me up with a few hours of the Max Fun lineup and Reply All and I’ll get a whole season’s worth of outfits done. I’m excited to be starting my Masters of Social Work in Fall 2017. The laundry? What, you think I can do everything?
I don't know what to write here, I don't know what the Buddy and Bean audience would like to know about the photographer and co-originator of this site's amazing models. When I'm not taking pictures of the kids, you can find me carrying them around on my back playing "zoo," laying in bed playing "cheetahs" (which is the best game because all you have to do is lay down in bed - cheetahs have it good), or helping them play Mario Kart, Sonic, or Tearaway. When I have free time to myself, I love The West Wing, Rent, Dark Souls, Carly Rae Jepsen, High School Musical, The Witcher, Six Feet Under, doing weird stuff in VR, Salty Bet, Buffy, My Brother My Brother and Me, Dixie Chicks, Persona 4, Grizzly Man, Andre Agassi, and sometimes I have to pull myself away from all that to go to work and do computer stuff.
Buddy has gotten very invested in this venture, and loves picking out fabrics and putting them together. They started out just named for him, but “Buddy’s Down The Rabbit Hole Shirt” and the latest "Picnic On A Clean Slate" shirt really are his - he chose the fabrics and decided how to use them. He’s a huge fan of all things Lego and all things dinosaur (unless they’re too realistic - that’s a little scary), and loves to play knights-and-dragons(-and-ninjas-and-princesses-and-Sonic).
Bean loves to dance and loves to create, and my sewing-table trash bins rarely stay full for long because she scavenges them for scraps to take to her own sewing table. Her room is filled with doll quilts, wall hangings, and everything in between that she’s created from anything and everything she can find. She’s an artistic force to be reckoned with.
