About AnchorsAndRibbons

Sales 1,766
On Etsy since 2014

Soldier turned teacher, turned mother, turned inspired sewing machine owner!

I am the owner and founder of a delightful local business called Anchors and Ribbons. I am an elementary educator, by trade, who has taken a few sharp turns down different career paths to bring me to this point in my life. I have done everything from fighting as a soldier in the US Army to having my comedic writings featured on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and The Tonight Show.

I also have experience as a long time retail sales associate, registered optician, military spouse liaison, photographer, and, as I mentioned before, certified elementary school teacher, specializing in language arts. During the past few years, I have found myself participating in public speaking engagements, a Today Show appearance, and a few written publications. Additionally, many folks find it surprising that I am well schooled in the design and production of handcrafted wood works.

The long and short of it is, I am an international traveler, uprooting with my family every few years for our country's sake. I am ever so proud of my husband's patriotism and service. My lifestyle requires me to be a self-sufficient woman with skills and experience to carry me confidently along the ever changing, wonderful path laid before me.

I personally make all the items in my store with great effort to provide a flawless product just for you!

**************************************** Please note: All things placed in the hands of babies and small children will likely to go into their mouths. (Believe me, I have had my share of "WHAT'S IN YOUR MOUTH?!" moments with my kids.) Use your own discretion with any of my accessories for your baby. In other words, don't let your little one place objects from my store in their mouth. Or anything other than food, for that matter!
