I've been crafting since I was a young teenager, but began sewing seriously just after my second child was born in 2011. I really began to find my niche and make things that were visually appealing and modern. I started making clothing for my girls and then decided to branch out to quilts that they could enjoy for many years. I fell in love. I also create other unique, one of a kind gifts as well.
