"I myself am made entirely of flaws, stitched together with good intentions."
-Augusten Burroughs

I am a 39 year old mama and wife.and recent grandma. I am a work at home mama and aspiring artist and designer of children's toys, dolls, and lovies. My husband and I live with our daughter Novella in a little bungalow in Nebraska. I am inspired by my old, creaky house which was built in 1914. Other things that inspire me are memories of my Grandma Lillian and all the beautiful crochet items her mother and grandmother used to make. I sometimes feel that they are smiling down on me and my creations, guiding me here and there. Grandma Johnson had an apartment full of vintage fabrics, jars of old buttons, a collection of glass bottles and keys from all over, and I try to recreate the feeling of spending an afternoon with her in my work.

I love antique fabrics and trimmings...when I can't use vintage my mother contributes to the beautiful embroidery you will see on my creations. I create custom orders and will personalize and date all pieces with fabric tags so you can tuck them away and pull them out of an old trunk some rainy day when your babes are older. Each piece is lovingly created as if to be worn by my own precious one (who is now 14).

Babies are not my only clients...I can also create beautiful hats, totes, shrugs, sweaters, clutches and such for those of all ages.

Thanks so much for looking.
