Shipping my last order before Christmas! Thanks to all who ordered for being stellar customers! It was a pleasure to work with you all! More towels are arriving this week and I can start taking orders again after Christmas! Have a blessed holiday!
All shirts shipped in December will be wrapped in a ribbon of bike chain fabric from my Cycles of Life collection that I designed for Maywood Studio!
No handwritten recipe? No problem! We'll print typed recipes as well!

About

It all started with a bib...

When my son was a baby, he'd get his cute little bibs dirty, and they'd stain, and I'd think "Oh, what a pity; that bib was so cute." Then I realized how utterly ridiculous that statement was, being that bibs are supposed to get dirty! I set out to design a bib that embraced the stain, so that I would rejoice every time the bib stained, rather than stress out over it. I eventually designed the "Blank Canvas Bib" that features two art patrons, who admire each mess and stain as a large-scale work of abstract art in a gallery. After I quit teaching high school art to stay home with my kids, I had the time to pursue producing the bib in mass quantity. I picked up a couple clients, my first being The gallery shop at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago. I was hooked. I'd always loved being creative, but being able to sell my designs on products was fun (and I didn't actually have to *make* anything myself! No messes to clean up)!

After the bib came the recipe towels, which led to custom recipe towels, and after that came my Cycles of Life design for towels, shirts and bibs, which led to my first line of fabric, Cycles of Life, for Maywood Studio.

Now that I'm designing fabric, I've rekindled my love of and obsession with fabric, and have started to learn how to properly quilt! Look for more designs to come in the near future!

Thanks for stopping by!
