Hello! I'm Randi. Thanks for stopping by.
Here is my face- I know you have probably only seen my hands, if you are a fan of my Slow-Alongs. This is an AI image that somehow looks more like me than actual photos do!
Other than running the By Annie Bag Makers Group and doing Slow-Alongs, I am also a mom to two young kids. I am also a pattern tester and an Island Batik Ambassador.
AND, earlier this year, I started working for ByAnnie! I answer emails about the patterns, write blog posts, host the chat during Live With Annie, and do some other "behind the scenes" things. Yes, I do test patterns, and no, I will not say a word about them before they come out. Please don't even ask! Lol
Annie is kind enough to refer to me as a "young mother", but I am not as young as you might think. I got a bit of a late start on the whole "marriage and family" thingy.
I don't sleep much.
I feel extremely lucky to be able to have a career doing what I love. I used to be a math teacher, which I also loved, but deep down I always wanted something more artistic.
I am also super grateful for the amazing people I have met through crafting. Thanks for your continuing inspiration and encouragement. XO
