The "jak" in jak Boutique is a play on my kids' names, which is more than appropriate, since they are my constant inspiration. My kids and I love to cut and paste and sew and create and dream. My 10-year-old daughter has her own "work area" set…

The "jak" in jak Boutique is a play on my kids' names, which is more than appropriate, since they are my constant inspiration. My kids and I love to cut and paste and sew and create and dream. My 10-year-old daughter has her own "work area" set up next to mine, and she likes to create with the ribbon and fabric scraps that fall at her feet. My 11-year-old son likes to make crafts out of any recycled materials he can find (to my dismay, at times...no need to touch and recycle the cigarette butts we see on the curb). It's a joyous (if not always tidy) existence, and I love raising my kids in an environment that promotes creativity, entrepreneurship, and love.

I love working with fabric of all types, in all ways. As often as possible, I like to create with materials that are recycled, reclaimed, and renewed to make something new and beautiful.

CUSTOM ORDERS: I welcome custom orders, as it's always exciting and inspiring to create something new that I haven't seen before. If you have a special combination in mind, please convo me. We'll design your custom piece just for you and I'll set up your listing.
