ABOUT

HOW I STARTED STITCHING

I remember growing up and watching my mom work on huge, gorgeous counted cross-stitches. I always thought they were beautiful, but it wasn't until early 2015 that I picked up a needle and thread myself. And while my simple and minimalist embroidery is not very similar to counted cross-stitch, that is where I first got my inspiration.


WHY I MAKE WALL HANGINGS

In my opinion, a colorful wall is a happy wall. I have always loved covering my wall with pretty things. When I was in high school, my sisters and I had posters plastered all over our rooms. When I moved out, my walls became a collage of 4x6 pictures. As I've traveled and gotten a little older, I've collected beautiful pieces to live on my walls, but I still wanted more. I've always thought embroidery was beautiful artwork, so it made perfect sense for me to create special hoops for my walls. I enjoyed the process so much that I wanted to stitch many more hoops than I actually need.

Embroidery hoops look great on walls. Trust me. ;) My favorite way to hang them is in a group with other hoops, or in a gallery wall with picture frames, prints, or weavings.

WHAT INSPIRES ME

I am inspired most by pretty colors and pretty words. By pairing those two together, I enjoy every piece I make. I love the outdoors, fall, good food, and good company. I also like to constantly try new things, so check back often to see what's new!
