where sisters, sibling rivalry, and creativity collide.




About Us

Six Hanna sisters... spanning 20 years.

What she said:
I am Marcy and am always being introduced as the oldest sister, possibly because I am. I work in a craft store where I am the one always being called on to help, meaning, of course, that I am the personification of the phrase "those that can't, teach". I do like to sew, do beading, engage in crafts/papercrafts and attempt photography (more a miss than a hit but, oh well, it gets me out of the house). Mostly I am a craft dabbler and am always wanting to try something new.
What we say:
Marcy is the Fancy Nancy of the bunch - she got nearly all of the artistic talent and hardly left any for the rest of us.

What she said:
Hi, I'm Debbie. I've always been more of a tomboy than anything else, but I (secretly) have a girly side.  The tomboy trait comes in handy with 5 boys and a girl.  I wish I had artistic talent, but I make do by faking it.  I would love to be able to paint beautiful watercolors, sew intricate embroidery and tailor well fitted clothing.  I make do with watercolor trees and slightly humorous embroidery.  Who wants to tailor clothes anyway?
What we say: Debbie is the one with the pith helmet, monocle and map egging us all to charge up the hill.  Oh, and she's never met a hill she wasn't willing to charge...though she is entirely adaptable to taking shortcuts.  She has a Yankee can-do-ism that has inspired her crafty inferiors to attempt many projects--both well-done and un.  When we're stuck in a dead-end, unable to craft our way to a finished product, we call Debbie for a work-around and she hardly ever laughs at us.

What she said:
Sherri's the name and organization's my game from fundraisers to closets.  I have sewn so many costumes for school plays the drama closet is named after me. Cooking, reading and running are my passions.  If given (or come up with) an idea I can pull from my vast pool of talented friends, sisters and bloggers to execute a not bad imitation cutting out the superfluous steps. While the least talented artistically of the group I make up for it by balancing my checkbook.
What we say:   When we need recipe advice, we call Sherri.  She's tried to make just about everything and it turns out fantastic, or she's fixed it to make it even better. We'll forever use her advice of looking at a costume from 5 feet then 10 feet and if you can't see the flaws, it's good to go. 


What she said:
I'm Suzanne, a mom to three kiddos and wife to a geek.  I sort of cook, kinda sew, and know how to paint a straight line to perfection.  I like to take pictures (especially ones that look fun), read random books, follow random blogs, and try to keep up with my talented sisters.
What we say:
We are all united in hating Suzanne...for being beautiful.  She never went through an 'awkward' stage and she has the most annoyingly adorable dimple, besides that, she has a magic camera and takes incredible photos. Did we mention that she's nice too?



 
What she said:
I'm Keira.  I'm a mom of four and wife of one. I can knock-off just about anything that tickles my fancy but couldn't free-hand my way out of a paper bag.  My motto is 'Quick and Dirty' and since most of my crafting stories begin with 'So I was at Goodwill...' sometimes, unhappily, that 'dirty' is literal.  P.S. Also, when I'm particularly awesome I like to kiss my biceps.
What we say:
Keira is the one with a way with words...she makes the rest of us sound boring. Dang her.



What we say:
Tia (the youngest) is in the process of packing to move from Oregon to Colorado. She is absolutely fearless when it comes to home improvement and power tools and the hardest worker we know...except when it comes to sewing.
