About the Designer
Hello! I'm Gina, the founder and owner of Bear & Barbaloot. By day I'm a pediatric nurse at the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto. I am also a wife to the best husband in the world, and the two cutest, most rambunctious little boys around (although I might be a teeny bit biased). In the rest of my "spare time" I lovingly work at making felt florals. I hope you enjoy my work as much as I adore making it!
