Not your Grandma's crafts...

By day I am an Interior Architect and by night I hone my inner grandma and craft anything subversive, sassy, and irreverent. No one likes the boring ladies!!

It all started when I needed to come up with a gift for a friends wedding that was required to be handmade. After that, all wedding gifts I gave were handmade and even a few birthday and Christmas presents were stitched up.

Slowly I realized that my sweet stitches were a big hit and that sharing it with more than my circle of friends was a must. So I sat in my living room after work for days on end for the entire winter of 2013/2014 and stitched until my fingers were sore.
In 2019 I introduced dishes to my lineup of grandma crafts. I wander the aisles of second-hand shops searching for that perfect dish that I can add a snarky quote to and make it something you’d laugh at.
In 2020 I added sassy totes and tea towels to my ever growing arsenal of sassy crafts. There’s something magical about handing the grocery cashier my witty bags and watching her face as she reads it. Ha!
In 2021 I added aprons and soon I’ll be adding snarky signs. Soon, you’ll have sassy crafts in every corner of your home!

Obviously I don't come up with all of the sayings myself, but I am rather clever in creating one-of-a-kind patterns and executing them well.

My favorite thing? Making people do a double take when they realize that the sweet stitch or old china that looks like granny made it actually is rather inappropriate. :)

While making your sassy crafts, you can find me on my sofa binge watching Netflix, probably in leggings and Remington, my mascot, purring nearby.
