About

Garland & Pendant

As a stay at home momma of three, embroidery became a beautiful hobby that was easily accessible during nap time.
I first tried embroidery Christmas of 2012 when I was gifted with a beginner's kit.
I immediately fell in love with the therapeutic rhythm of the needle pulling thread through fabric.

In the winter of 2015, our youngest daughter Willa was diagnosed with Retinoblastoma (cancer of the retina) when she was just 10 weeks old. I had no idea at the time that my growing hobby of stitching would become such a peaceful outlet for me in the midst of so much uncertainty.
There have been many times in the past year that I've ignored my desire to create, becoming overwhelmed with the weight of life's changes and tragedies. Soon after Willa's initial diagnosis, my husband quit his job, we sold our home in Johnson City, Tennessee, moved to Wake Forest, put our son in preschool for the first time, my husband went back to school and then accepted a new job two weeks later, we bought a house in Raleigh and moved in about two months later. Lots of change. Pretty traumatic. I'd placed my creative heart and ambition in the background, waiting for a time when all my children were healthy and things were back to "normal". Needless to say, I missed the healing effects of using my hands to make things, and soon stopped halting my creative endeavors, realizing that life might never slow down enough to feel normal again.
I am overjoyed to embrace this small business dream of mine once more, especially now, with the realization that I can participate in making beauty in the midst of chaos.
