it's one of the many hats I wear...

I wear a lot of hats.  Most importantly mom.mommy.mama.wife.  And before I was those things I was a teacher.  Love, love, love kiddos!  Now I get to be all three.  Mama, wife and substitute teacher.

And, the other hat I wear?  Sewer.  Or stitcher.  Or designer.  However your little heart wants to define it.  I started off in this little business of mine nearly 8 years ago.  When Calvin was a wee little guy and I recieved some cutie baby gifts.  And the creative juices started going.  "I can do that."  And so it started.  Just embellishing onesies at first.  But then along came sweet pea Katie and she grew into a toddler and now a little girl who loves fashion.  So my styles and clothing lines have grown up with her.  From onesies to tees.  And I've added pants and shorts.  And burps and a bib or two.  And the Huggalugs.  Oh me oh my.  I now carry those as the most adorable accessory to my line.

First it was a gift or two that I gave.  Then the word began to spread.  And I got brave.  I asked a boutique store if they were interested in carrying my goodies.  And can you believe they said "yes?"  So from one boutique to another, to another, to another, it grew.  This little business of mine.  And from boutique stores to craft fairs.  And large craft fairs to etsy.  Wow!  Who knew?

Isn't it all wonderful?  How God can take you on a creative little journey you least expected?  And it's joyous.  I love what I do.  I love to create, I love to make people happy, I love to meet all of you.
