About

I have been sewing and crafting since I was a little girl. My mother sewed and my grandmother quilted. So I picked up on a lot. My first designer fashion was for my Barbie, I made her a sweater dress from a sock.

I have a motto, "Buy American Made" give China and all those other countries a break!!
I completely support 'cottage industry', our great grandmothers and others had to make what they wore and grew what they ate. I love to re-cycle whenever possible.

My passion is creating something beautiful or shabby!!
I like to re-cycle, up-cycle and re-purpose anything I can. Make something new out of something old.

I never really know what a piece will look like, I just gather the main parts and go from there. I can look at a picture and pretty much make what…

My shop is a "hodge podge" of an organized mess, lol, but I know where everything is, it maybe buried under something but I know its there!!
I guess you could say I'm a pack rat, if I think I can re-use an item I will put in the re-cycle box.
I don't like to buy anything unless I have too, I love to dig around thrift stores, most of the time when I'm on the hunt for something special, I make my rounds while I'm out running errands.
I support Etsy shops by purchasing supplies, I believe we should support American workers whenever possible.
I hope you find something you absolutely love and just gotta have, if I don't have it, I will be happy to make it for you!!

I also have a wedding shop, KaysWeddingCreations, that is the fancy stuff for weddings, check it out, thanks!!
