Hi, my name is Lisa Sheppard Pearson. I live in the suburbs of Minneapolis in a charmless 1980s house I like to pretend is the charming cottage of my dreams. I stay at home with my girls, the big one and the little one and we spend most of our days playing, gardening, doing art, and trying to decide what to cook for dinner.

I have a little business, sheppard girls, that I run from the coffee table in our family room. It has recently taken over the corner chair as well. I design, make and sell baby, children's and some women's gifts and accessories. I have lots of creative energy and it is a really good excuse to buy all the pretty fabric and to read all the craft blogs and magazines I love.

Thanks for stopping by.
