About Me:

MY BACKGROUND

Hi! My name is Libby. I'm a graduate of Kent State University. I have a 4 year old tuxedo cat named Delilah. I love traveling around the country and finding new places to explore - I'm always looking forward to my next adventure! I started sewing at a very early age and have loved it ever since! Costuming has always been a passion of mine, and I enjoy being able to breathe life into characters of all kinds.
