Announcement   ******************PLEASE READ IF ORDERING************************************
We have a big family wedding the weekend of May 13th, lots of out-of-towners and events, so I will not be shipping between the dates of 11-16 and any orders placed during that time might be delayed. If you wish to contact me feel free to do so, it might be a a longer than usual time for me to reply but I will.

My strength is my husband who is also my best friend. My most precious gifts are my grandchildren (1 beautiful preteen girl and 3 rough and tumble boys), and my Labradoodle Jada born on St Patrick's Day 2009.

Product is beautiful. It is a little big for my Kindle but I like the option to travel with it in its side pocket. I don't love the string tie and I wish it had a sturdy back. Shipped in a timely manner and was as pictured.

About

I finally arrived at the place I should have started.

Ever since I was a child, I have been interested in art, my mother use to say I was born with a crayon in my hand! Unfortunately I decided to forget about art (except for the occasional poster or drawing I would do at various jobs) and went through several different phases in my youth and didn’t get back to my first love until I approached middle age.

I began with oil painting, but found out that I would never be a great artist and couldn't afford it so I quickly switched to acrylics and decorative painting. I finally began my trip to creating and wanting to share what I loved, so I started doing local craft fairs and Farmers Markets. When I found I couldn’t compete with China and I was getting too old to lug all my creations around -loading and unloading - I knew I had to find something else to satisfy my need to create.

I started looking around for an answer to my dilemma and found fabric and the palette that it offered. I did something I thought I would never do, I took up sewing! I started with tooth pillows, and branched off to all the fabric crafts I do from there. Luckily I have a very understanding husband who doesn’t mind that our house isn’t always clean, meals aren’t 5 stars, and a semi-understanding labradoodle who just insists she gets her share of hugs and kisses.

My studio or sewing room is stockpiled with tons of fabric, but I know where everything is, most of the time.

I have separated my Children's Clothing from my Wallets, Purses, Hanging Towels, etc, please visit my Children's Shop at www.josiesclosetboutique.etsy.com
