Thanks for stopping by my shop! I am currently in my fifth year working as a fourth grade teacher in my hometown, Port Orange, FL. On the side I sew with a small group of friends who have encouraged me to sell my handmade items.

I look at the meadow
And stare at the flowers

On her wedding day

It reminds me that, no matter what I have (or don't have), I am clothed in the Lord's righteousness. He has given me all that I need and if He has given so much care for the flowers, how much more will He care for me?

It's hard to remember that promise day in and day out, but I hope these pieces in my shop inspire you to do so. I have really enjoyed the time I have spent working on them!
