I'm one creative Mama!

Welcome to my shop! I'm a WAHM with 2 children. I have a Culinary Degree, so I love cooking, eating, cake decorating and gardening/canning. I just love food in general!

This shop was created shortly after my Mom passed away, which was in Feb. '11. I grew up in a small town in Pennsylvania, and she was the town seamstress (for 20+ years). When she died, my family was blown away by the amount of lives she had touched by sewing. I had very basic sewing skills, but was determined to learn! I dusted off my machine and found that I could actually sew pretty good! I like to think that maybe it's a gift from her (or maybe a hidden talent that I didn't know I had).

I love making all kinds of bags/purses, some children/baby items, "Green" products...anything re-usable, and my most recent love is Soaping. I could seriously make soap all day. It's the most addictive hobby EVER!!

Being a Stay at Home Mom (who used to be a work-a-holic), I found that I needed a creative outlet. Etsy has been perfect for me in that way.

I hope you enjoy my creations and check back often, as I am always adding new items!
