In the fall of 2014 I became an empty-nester when our youngest child left home for college and my mind was consumed with what this new stage of life was going to look like. I set two goals for myself: to spend time doing work that made a difference, and for that work to provide a creative outlet for me. I had no idea how all of this would evolve until my husband decided to clean out his closets one day and I discovered my new favorite piece of clothing in his give-away pile..an oversized black fleece piece! One day not long after, I looked down at my lovely fleece and thought,…“I’ve got to find something more attractive than this to wear all the time.” That thought led to, “This is it!... my creative business venture!”…. and birdchirp and the popover are what have evolved.
