About The Authors
Susan White Sullivan - Writer
Susan is best known for her long career in the craft publishing industry. The truth is that being the editorial director for a nationally known company allowed her to stay close to all the things she loved– sewing, crochet, knitting, painting, and more. It was the perfect mix of business and passion.
She formed her consulting firm in 2015 and continues to provide editorial services to the craft industry. In 2016, she authored her first sewing book, Weighted Blankets, Vests & Scarves (Spring House Press). Expanding her creative side, she is a contributor to craft magazines and teaches needle arts and mono printing at fiber festivals. She also teaches crochet and is past president of the Crochet Guild of America. She resides in Little Rock, Arkansas with her very patient husband.
Christen Byrd - Designer
Christen Byrd loves all things creative—from graphic design to screen printing to social/brand design to massive, custom balloon installations (more on that in a minute). She's the Creative Director for Loblolly Creamery, a local favorite in Little Rock, Arkansas. She's also the founder and head of Just Peachy, a balloon design company creating fun, over-the-top balloon installations for everything from corporate events to kids’ parties and everything in between.
She and her husband Ryan have called Little Rock, Arkansas home for more than 10 years; it’s where they raise their three children, Lucy, Olive, and Max, who are her biggest creative inspirations (they certainly served as the motivation for this book). As she developed each cardboard space, all three little Byrds were anxious to test them out and ask for new features. Christen’s built-in focus group keeps her close to her audience and helped make this project a labor of love for her and her family.
