was originally inspired by Shakespeare.
I've loved The Bard since I was first introduced at five years old to
Juliet Capulet. She was strong-willed, feisty, and full of heart for this guy Romeo. I was enraptured, so I devoured every piece of
Shakespeare I could get my hand on.
Years later I started designing treats based on his text. I've currently designed at least five or six treats for over a dozen of his plays -
perfect for intermission for any park performance,
London Globe production or even a high school play.
