About

I am struggling with PTSD due to being strangled and my anxiety is keeping me from being as active as I used to be. I have one daughter who is full of joy and a budding doll lover so I am playing around with some crafts when my anxiety allows. My mom worked in the apparel industry for years so I spent Take Your Daughter To Work Day and many afternoons at Nike, Columbia Sportswear, Jantzen and the like and when she ran her alterations shop I helped her with her work, admired her perfection fixing wedding dresses, etc and used the scraps to make baby clothes to sell at the consignment store around the corner. I loved making little shorts with frayed patches and Tshirt dresses with buttons around the edges. Those were creative ideas at the time now they are more common at gymboree, etc. Now I am searching out forgotten remnants and working on some matching outfits for my little one and her doll and hope to sell a few.
