looking forward to making this
A little bit about our journey at Tookies: First of all, I am a proud wife and mother to three wonderful kids, who test my mental strength and intestinal fortitude daily! If you are new to Tookies, you may not know that my biz took off like a shot when I started in my local community in early '08 (in Northern GA at that time), which led me to put my things online - I big-fluffy-HEART Etsy! I usually did not keep a lot of stock, and did mostly custom orders. After several months, I was sewing non-stop from before the babies got up in the morning till waaaaay past their bedtime (and mine for that matter!) It fed my passion for color and design like nothing else, but my family started wondering "where's Mommy?"
Fast forward a few more months to a cross-country move - from GA to Western WA. Our new house's square footage was less than half of what we had in GA - bye bye studio! Still determined to make it happen, I began to unpack the boxes with all my beautiful fabric, only to hear fiercely panicked tones of "Oh, Mommy, PLEASE don't sew again..." and "it's been so much fun having you with US..." Ahh, the sting of being "blood-pinned" with the mother's badge of guilt - it's a beautiful thing. Now add a little dash of 'forced' homeschooling of one of my children (convo me if you are dying to know the sordid details!) and I found myself tearing through those last unpacked boxes and looking in corners and under beds for the extra hours I needed in a day to make it all happen. All this to say I got a heavy dose of realization that I needed to find balance!
I took 3 years off from Tookies to devote to my family, but now living back in GA I am opening up shop again, this time to bring you the gift of patterns and instructions to make your OWN Tookies creastions. I have missed Tookies and my customers so much, and have learned my limits during this hiatus. While custom work is my ultimate passion in doing this, I must keep stock and sell from that to maintain my sanity and care for my family. Of course, you can always convo me and ask, and I might surprise you and say - "Hey! We actually have that size in the studio and I just haven't listed it yet!" Or better yet, I might have even unpacked that last box that has all those extra hours in a day I've been looking for, and I can whip out a custom order for ya! Either way, know that I love what I do - on Etsy and off - and it will show in my product and customer service.
