About Mood Swing

Mood Swing was started on a dining room table a few months after my first child was born in 2002. No formal training, no fancy art school degree…just me and a desperate need to do something besides changing diapers and playing with noisy Fisher Price toys. Four years later finds me with a second child, customers dotted across the world and a founding member of The Handmaidens, a local collective and sponsor of The Handmade Market.

When I’m not creating things for the shop, I can be found enjoying the following: thrifting, flea markets, gin & tonics, cupcakes, singing Clash songs with my kids, blazing through my NetFlix queue, reading…certainly not sleeping. Sigh.
