About

slaPPhaPPie is the fourth company name emily has had since she began crafting with a BROTHER back in 2005, and she thinks it's here to stay. When searching for the parfait name, a double date with her uber-creative husband, Webster, and Roget ended with romance in the eyes when emily found the definition for slaphappy:
1. severely befuddled; punch-drunk,
2. agreeably giddy or foolish,
3. cheerfully irresponsible.

emily’s most recent sewing lesson was with the pulchritudinous ms. sheldon, back at red hook central junior high school, in 1983. the designs on her pillows and tote bags make one wonder if the creator were a color- and pattern-blind golf-playing octogenarian, but no, she’s just a mama of two, a part time art teacher, and a part time trader joe’s crew member, who spends every living breathing moment…
