Funny how things grow...

Three years ago, I was looking for some new Renaissance clothing for my children before the Texas Renaissance Festival kicked off. I wanted them to have the same quality of costumes for the faire that I had made for myself. But I couldn't find anything that was to the quality that I wanted. So, I started making their Renaissance clothing myself and decided to start selling those clothes so that other parents would have access to quality garb for their children. Shortly after starting out with that plan, I started making cute fairy costumes. From there, I started taking on other projects with my business, including full nursery sets. I lost sight of my original plan.

I'm still working on getting back to that original plan of children's Renaissance clothing, but right now, I'm having a blast with fairy wings!

I hope you enjoy what I've created!

I'm just a girl with an embroidery machine, a sewing machine, and a love for creating everything from fairy wings to tiny things (for American Girl dolls).
