Hi! I live in the Pacific Northwest (near Seattle, WA) and enjoy art and design of all kinds. I create costumes and clothing, sew, make jewelry, paint, draw, create block prints, etc; and have always wanted to be a fabric designer. Spoonflower rocks!!

My husband's last name is Serfling and mine is Shepherd. I designed a coat of arms for us. Our cats are our heraldic beasts.
My husband's last name is Serfling and mine is Shepherd. The wave and sheep are probably fairly self-evident (the wave symbolizing the â€œSerfâ€ or â€œsurfâ€ in my husbandâ€™s last name, and the sheep standing for the â€œShepâ€ or â€œsheepâ€ in mine).
But you may be wondering about the â€œbla-a-atâ€ and the style of the sheep, which is different than most of my drawings. The story behind that is a crossword puzzle my husband Jim and I were doing together several years ago. One clue was â€œthe sound a calf makes,â€ and the word we ended up with (which we are pretty sure is not a real word) after filling in all the squares was â€œBLAT,â€ so Jim drew the cartoon below in the margin of the puzzle. The style of the sheep and the â€œbla-a-tâ€ in our coat of arms is my homage to Jimâ€™s cartoon.
And of course our cats are our heraldic beasts.
See, it all makes sense now! :-)
