Tiff Goff Smith

I'm Tiffany Goff Smith and the Gal behind Southern Gals Designs. I live on the gulf coast of Alabama with my husband, fur/ feathered children. I am a creative alchemist who enjoys bookmaking, my most favorite books are made from the discarded unusual treasures. Taking what most would say is junk and throwing it out. I give it new life and it brings me refuge from the storms of the world.
