Announcement This is a great time of year to start work on custom designs or begin prototyping stockings if you have any creative ideas. I can attempt to source fabrics I don't regularly carry or experiment with sizes and design. As always, please feel free to send me a message.

As a teacher at an inner-city school in San Diego, I am no stranger to the "pink slip" game. For several years in a row, every year, my local district had to layoff hundreds of teachers in an attempt to balance their budget. Many teachers were hired back almost as quickly as they were let go. In 2011, I was ten years into this very stressful emotional pendulum, getting somewhat used to it when my husband and I discovered I was pregnant. Now, bout to begin motherhood unemployed and uninsured, things were getting real, fast.
It was panic time; there's a baby on the way! I knew, for me, there was no better way to feel better than shopping. No sooner did I walk into a home decor shop, when I spotted a burlap covered pillow. My unemployed-self saw that $100 price tag and said "Pshhh, I can do that"...and BurlapBabe was born! Pink slips were recalled three days after my retail therapy epihany, and the sweet little baby that prompted it all was born not too long after. Thankfully(?), she'll never know a world without burlap.
Fast forward four years later and my husband and I work evenings and weekends (mostly when our kids are asleep), out in our garage. Tired, together, and happy.
My moral of the story is: no matter what the challenge, there is nothing a glue gun and a great pair of scissors can't fix.
