Hey everyone! I'm super excited to join you again this year. I need to get crankin' on all my new products. The sewing machine is going to be humming!

I'm an Honorary Mama and happy to be surrounded by such talented, smart Mamas! I love to practice many of the domestic arts, but especially sewing and crafts. My specialties are custom
paintings, funky quilting, handmade handbags, and generally things that are fun and pretty. And functional if at all possible.

I'm from Missouri originally, where I spent lots of time doing crafty projects as a kid. My first money making venture was selling friendship bracelets out of my desk in 4th grade. After that venture ended in a trip to the principal's office, I took a business break until starting a small business making jewelry and home goods at the age of 14, going to summer art fairs and selling in a high-end boutique in Columbia, Missouri.

After college and a degree in Graphic Design and Fibers, I now live in Nashville working as a graphic designer and make, sell, and teach all manner of fabric and fun art. From hand-dyed fabrics to semi-traditional quilting, to helping my boyfriend screen print zombies on t-shirts, I really gets around!

My Motto: Make it pretty, make it well.
