Creativity is my life!

Ever since I was old enough to be creative I have been. I am lucky to have an appreciation in the arts that is probably genetic. As a child I was constantly creating and making, from woodworking to yarn crafts, sewing to stain glass. I was fortunate to have a chance to try my hand at many, many forms of art and when I was 16 I discovered photography. I was instantly drawn to the magic of film and developing my own images. It became a deep and wonderful passion. I decided, with the help of my very supportive family, to pursue a career in the arts. After college I had a small business and photographed pretty much everything. As years went on I took a job selling cameras and printing photos and had my business on the side. Then I managed to land my dream job working full time at a prestigious studio. I was finally able to do what I love every single day and share my passion by capturing people's most precious memories.

I then discovered an emptiness in my life after work. No longer really needing to or wanting to do as much photography outside of work I was restless without a productive purpose and creative outlet. Some people do yoga, I create to relax and feel balanced.

One day I decided to start sewing again. After a few months I borrowed my parents old sewing machine. Soon I was making creative pillows for friends and family. Very soon after that I got paid to make purses and and other items by friends of friends. My aunt passed along some great patterns and sewing supplies and I discovered my second passion in life and the joy of making stuffed animals. Once I realized that I could not keep every creation, Sew Shenanigans was born.

While sewing is my favourite medium I enjoy being creative with many artistic materials. My sewing and art companion is my cat Pepper, who as much as I try to deter her, cannot get enough of helping her human mom make every creation. My Husband is one of my biggest fans (next to my Mom) and loves to see each new character I create.

I lovingly hand-make each creation with new materials. My favorite material to use is fleece, it is so soft and fun to work with. I do sometimes use vintage materials (thoroughly washed) to create something very unique. I often use patterns or start with one that I alter and tweak to add my own twist and creativity to it.

My favorite thing about making stuffed animals is how different each one turns out even if I make it with the same pattern. It's like they take on a life of their own, letting their personalities shine through my sewing. I very much hope you enjoy my creations as much as I truly enjoy making them.
