About

I have always loved thrift store shopping. I remember spending countless hours in middle school searching through the racks at the local thrift store. My goal was to find the perfect style, fabric, and print. Then gather up my findings and take them home. I would go to work with scissors, needle, and thread and turn these forgotten articles of clothing into something that spoke to my heart. Now a day’s I travel out to the fabric district in Los Angeles . This is where I get most of my inspiration from. I love to scavenge through the tiny shops finding items to use for adding detail into my garments. I have a huge collection of buttons, lace trimmings and cut off scrap fabrics. These items might not look to appealing alone, but when paired up to that off the wall thrift store find, it’s like a match made in heaven.
I am pleased to be able to bring my passion into my business. I love how by being a crafter I get to do something new…

I am pleased to be able to bring my passion into my business. I love how by being a crafter I get to do something new every day. It is not your typical day in and day out nine to five jobs. Some days when I am inspired I just hold up in my craft room and throw around fabric and small bits and objects until the urges inside have been satisfied. That is usually when I create my favorite pieces. I have so many hobbies and I mostly can be found crocheting year round, but there is something nostalgic for me every time I create a piece of altered couture. There is no better feeling then to create one of a kind unique piece's and be able to share it with everyone in the world.
