A little about me...

I'm a mother of a Princess and Little Man who are 18 months apart. I have Crohn's Disease, so between being a mom, working two jobs, making jewelry, taking pictures and the sewing, it's just the right amount of stress, I hope. I started selling my stuff for two reasons: 1) because I enjoy it and 2) to generate some extra income. I also hope to someday keep my grandmother's memory alive by teaching my kids to sew and craft.

Other hobbies that I enjoy are model trains (with the kids), target and trap shooting (with friends), reading, watching movies, and just general crafting. I also enjoy meeting one of my good friends for coffee as often as our two schedules allow, which, unfortunately, isn't all that often.

Although I have been sewing and crafting for as long as I can remember, I have only been selling my creations for about a year. I came from a family where my grandmother taught my mom and then me how to sew, do needlepoint, knit, crochet, etc. I stumbled across a market for reconstructed clothing items and thought, "Hey, I can do that!" Made a couple of items for myself and the rest, I put up for sale. The rest, as they say, is history!

So, with my two little ones playing with scraps of material (and all my pins...can't find them!), I sew while I'm home, which isn't often anymore as I'm working again. But, I do what I can. And custom stuff always comes first. :)
