From Beth: Kerry blogs at Kid Giddy and has a shop for her custom designs (including her popular thumb cover guard to stop thumb sucking). She has lots of big news in the works (and still under wraps) at the moment but she took time out of her busy schedule to create a fun tutorial for us, coming up next.

From Kerry: My name is Kerry Goulder, but I sew as Kid Giddy and sign off as “kg.” I’m a mother to two beautiful girls (one just turned 8 and one is 6 1/2). I am a wife and will be celebrating my 10 year wedding anniversary with my hubby in June! I’m a twin to my awesome sister Sue– Yes, we talk all the time and we believe the Pinch Factor is totally real– And sister to my seven other siblings! I am a published Crafter which started with my “Scrappy Owl” being featured on the cover of the Sept/Oct issue of Crafts ‘n Things Magazine (hobby #1); I’m a 3rd degree brown belt in Shaolin Kempo Karate (hobby #2); and I’m a published songwriter and still trying to learn the piano and guitar in my not-so-free time (hobby #3). I’ve been sewing since I was very little and helped my mom and grandmother at craft fairs when I was younger. Art is in my blood and so is crafting. My girls have it too. I write my blog and create my patterns so I can share all I know with my girls and anyone else that wants to read. I love to dream up something and then create it three-dimensionally.
