::Who is FPD?::

Hi! I'm Kyla and I'm a former 2nd grade teacher turned SAHM that is the creative lunatic behind Funky PolkaDot Giraffe. When I started Funky PolkaDot Giraffe over 2 years ago I was making burp cloths and diaper/wipe caddies. I only had a little boy and didn't have much need for bows or clips. I chose the name Funky PolkaDot Giraffe because my son ADORES giraffes and I love polka dots and we're a little funky, so it fit us perfectly.

When I found out in June of 2008 that I was having a girl my wheels started turning and I started making bows. I started with korkers and it has evolved from there. I owe most everything I know about bow making to my friend Ashby - she's a great teacher and tutorial writer.

From there is has snowballed and I started making headbands, princess clips, seasonal ribbon art creations (like my Turkey, Snowman, and Chocolate Bunny), car seat canopies and camera strap covers. It's been a fun and exciting journey into the creative - there are so many things I want to make, but only so many hours in the day!
So now I craft and blog, blog and craft. I still haven't ventured into the realm of tutorials because I feel like I either use someone else's tutorial or craft on the fly and never write anything down. However, it's my goal this year to do at least one tutorial - so help me!

So welcome to Funky PolkaDot Giraffe! Come back soon!
