#1. How did you decide on your shop name?
When I was in college, my first PhotoShop project, I merged a pickle and a panda. The pickled panda name stuck with me and when I opened up shop, I knew I had to name it after that project.
#2. When did you start crafting?
I've always been a lover of creating whatever I could, ever since I was a little girl. I used to collect all kinds of "treasures" (trash) and convert it into all sorts of things.
#3. What or who inspires you?
Everything! Plus I have this crazy imagination, that helps a lot! Some things I make are inspired from TV shows or stories I've written.
#4. Do you have a day job?
Oh yeah, I have the best job ever: taking care of my son (born 5-16-08), two dogs, hubbie, and the house 24/7!
#5. What is the item in your shop you enjoyed making the most and why?
My clothing! Having my own clothing line is one of the many things I have always wanted to do, and I'm so excited that I'm finally doing it!
