I am a stay at home mom of 3 little kiddos. Precious as they may be - sometimes they drive me INSANE!! I need a break from the "mommy, get me this, mommy, get me that", which is why I started Baby Paige on Etsy. It's a little me-time that I truly enjoy.

We just moved into a new home and I have gone from working on my kitchen table to having a whole studio/office dedicated to just my embroidery...okay, so I'm seeing a few toys laying around, and yes, my husband has all his books on the bookshelves, but I have commandeered the majority of the space for just "MY STUFF".

How I got started is always a good story when my husband wonders why I have piles of fabric laying around everywhere, or why I'm always running out to get more "stuff". For my birthday one year, Johnny (he's my husband), decided to buy me a new sewing machine. I was so excited and then he told me that I…

How I got started is always a good story when my husband wonders why I have piles of fabric laying around everywhere, or why I'm always running out to get more "stuff". For my birthday one year, Johnny (he's my husband), decided to buy me a new sewing machine. I was so excited and then he told me that I would have to go and pick it out because he had no idea what to look for. Well - he should've just bought me the one at Sears that did the general every day sewing stuff, but no...he also took me to the Baby Lock dealer in town and then there was no going back to the regular ol' sewing machine. I came home with a lovely sewing machine that just happened to be an embroidery machine as well. Happy birthday to me!!

I made a few blanket/quilts for my neices for Christmas and they loved them and other people who saw them loved them and so the story goes.

I have now moved up to the commercial embroidery machine, and my very first Baby Lock embroidery machine is mainly used for sewing now. So it came full circle - see...he ended up buying me a sewing machine afterall.

Lesson to husbands out there - just buy the jewelry.
