As a child I was blessed to have gifted crafters as role models. My mother, two grandmothers, and aunt could do everything from flower-arranging to basketweaving to cross stitch. By the time I was seven years old, I could knit, crochet, and hand- and machine-sew proficiently. I enjoyed these hobbies until high school homework, afterschool jobs, and college became my reality.

Fifteen years later, stressed out and working over 70 hours per week, my friend and co-worker told me that I "needed…

As a child I was blessed to have gifted crafters as role models. My mother, two grandmothers, and aunt could do everything from flower-arranging to basketweaving to cross stitch. By the time I was seven years old, I could knit, crochet, and hand- and machine-sew proficiently. I enjoyed these hobbies until high school homework, afterschool jobs, and college became my reality.

Fifteen years later, stressed out and working over 70 hours per week, my friend and co-worker told me that I "needed to get a hobby!" She was so right! I picked my knitting and crochet back up and began to make blankets for the babies and kids that were admitted into the ICU where I worked. The blankets given to our patients demonstrated to me how much an expression of love a handmade item is.

A short time later, my family had a next-generation population explosion and I became a doting aunt to three nieces and three nephews in six years. It was a joy to outfit them in my handmade clothing, but I soon realized that they would all have crocheted underwear if I didn't find another outlet for my craft!

In 2005, I began to sell my handmade baby and children's clothing at the annual fall craft show in Dayton, Virginia. I have wonderful customers, and even those who don't buy anything still admire my items and compliment me on my handwork. Over the past several years I have been overwhelmed with requests for business cards, order inquiries, and "do you have a website?" from my loyal and new customers. They are the reason I have an Etsy shop now!

So who am I outside of my craft? I work full-time as a pediatric critical care nurse, and work even more hours on my shop! I have three furry feline children named Leo, Gracie, and Cindy Lou, all adopted rescues. I'm an antiques lover and collector, and never miss a chance to search for treasures. I love to bake desserts, and my co-workers can attest that I'm quite good at it! My other loves are international mission work utilizing my nursing talents, traveling, photography, gardening, and watching movies!
