My Name is Jodi-Lyn, I am a mother of one. I love to make knotted usable items that either act as wearable items or have some practical use. I enjoy going down to the old port and walking around enoying the atmosphere.

Why did you choose Portland? I choose Portland because I loved the rich environment and lively crowed.
