About

Hi! I'm Renee-a 38 year old single mother of 3 rock out teenagers! The most important thing to know about me is I LOVE to have fun! Play is the #1 priority in our house. We play all the time and we love to try new things! Games, Dancing, Horse Back Riding, Roller Skating, Swimming, Hiking, Art Galleries & Movies are our fav!
I've been described as crazy, impulsive, etc...but my favorite - wait for it.... Fearlessly Whimsical! YES!

I grew up on a working farm. My birth mother was in prison when I was born and I was adopted by an older retired couple. Being on a real farm as a child was a blast, the animals, the fresh food, the wide open space to run and play...I felt so free :) And because I was always hanging out with older southern women, I was exposed to sewing, crochet, knitting, canning, quilting and butter churning from day one. I loved sewing and crochet…

I loved sewing and crochet most and I've been sewing non stop since before I started kindergarten...no design school here - this stuff is in my blood!

One of my favorite things about growing up were my cool older cousins! They rocked every thing all day. They used to take their concert tees and turn them into tube tops, halter tops and mini skirts and I always thought they were the coolest garments ever...and I still do. I will make anything that pops into my brain from a tshirt and if it doesn't work - Ill re cut and try again!

Me and my kiddos have always loved treasure hunting in thrift shops, our closets are full of t-shirts that no one else has; and the gems we find that won't fit us...well I make rock out garments for you guys from them...from infant wear all the way up to garments and accessories for us adults who are BFFs with our inner child! I NEVER buy new t-shirts to make items from, there is just no challenge in that. When I find an amazing tshirt in a thrift shop it almost screams at me what it wants to become and I WILL find a way to make it's dreams come true ;) - did I mention growing up as an only child on that big ol' farm rewarded me with a grand imagination and I put it to great use every single day.

I love to talk to people, to meet new people - there are so many diverse people and traditions on this planet and the internet has put us in a position to communicate with them - how magnificent! So, if you want to chat or share or discuss whatever - drop me a line - I'm in!

Smooches!
