This valance was perfect for my kitchen. I placed it on a double window and the colors are as pictured on the website. The flowers have a bit of a vintage look. The valance is also expertly sewn and lined.

Seamstress Making Beautiful Home Decor Items

I have always loved being creative. As a little girl I was always making things for my family and friends. Tissue flowers for my Grandma, potholders for my mom, embroidering by hand dresser scarves and always making Barbie doll clothes. My mom finally let me sew on her sewing machine when I was 6. I would have started sooner if she would have let me!!
When I was older, I would come home from working full time in the dental field and craft at night after my son would go to sleep and several times a year I would host a craft show at my home, which was just a small cottage. I would fill every nook and crannie with my homemade items, bake some cookies, put on a pot of tea and invite everyone I knew. It was great fun and I was able to help support the 2 of us.
I recently left my position as a dental office manager to make my dream of working at my craft my full time job. Thanks to ETSY, I was able to make this a reality. Now I spend my days making valances, pillows and curtains. I will soon be expanding to table runners and quilted table toppers. Keep checking back, you know us creative types ... we are always thinking up something :)

Sewing and crafting have been my life. My enjoyment is knowing that usually no two items are alike, there is a little wiggle room for imperfections (nothing is perfect), and with any handmade item - it is made by a human who took her time, love and talent to create a gift to share with others.

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalized orders

Before an order is placed, I am happy to help with measurements to make sure your custom order is correct. I do not offer refunds for custom sizes.

Fabric Samples

I know that what looks like one color on one computer screen looks different on another so I am happy to provide at no charge a small sample of fabric for you to see the color. If you need one larger than what will fit in a business size envelope, please contact me to order a larger size for a small cost.

When can I expect my order

I am usually able to get my orders out within 2 weeks. If I have to special order fabric, it may take longer and I will let you know that right up front. If there is an unforeseen problem, I will let you know ASAP.

Can you explain the terminology

I am asked about terminology often.
* Length - up and down
* Width - across side to side
* Casing - the area where your curtain rod slides through - sometimes called a rod pocket.
*Header - the small amount of fabric above the casing - this is sometimes called a ruffle.
* Lining - lining fabric is added to the back of the curtain or valance to add extra body, helps keep the sun from fading your fabric, hides the side and hem seams and for full panels helps to keep the heat and cold out.
*Cafe Curtains or Tiers - cafe curtains or tiers are usually hung about half way up the window frame. They are designed to add privacy while letting in light.
