I strive to make quality handmade goods to enhance your life and make you smile. Using vintage materials, I design treasures that repurpose and reinvent the little things that make a lovely life. Oh, and I'm tryin' to love Mama Earth too.

Around August 2010, I splurged on a new sewing machine, not quite sure what I intended to do with it. After devoting 3 and half years to be a stay-at-home mom, I knew I needed to incorporate something personal and creative back into my schedule for my sanity. I started making little sewn gifts, which garnered more exclamations and smiles than I anticipated. After entering a couple of shows, everything has snowballed beautifully for me. 

This is a far cry from the computer cubicle life that I endured before being a mother. It feels like it took the three and a half year "sabbatical" of motherhood to allow me the space to discover a talent and a passion.
