Do you sew for yourself? Yes! I sew my own window treatments, pillows, cushions, quilts and slipcovers for my home and I consider that for myself. As a stay at home mom to four children I feel it is so important to make my home as comfortable and beautiful as possible. My tagline is "Adorn Your Life", and I do my best! Being able to sew makes it possible for me to easily change things up with the seasons or quickly whip up some new pillows when I am tired of the old (which happens quickly around here)! I've been known to steal sheets from a bed so I could whip up some crisp white kitchen curtains, drop cloths become slipcovers and pillows. When we found out were expecting our baby girl my youngest son was moved in with his brothers and his window panels became a new duvet cover. When decorating my daughter's nursery I remembered I had a brick path style quilt top I had just completed, I decided it would make excellent bumper pads and dresser runners and the leftover piece was perfect for covering a vintage footstool. I just love to sew and make things pretty!
Any new projects you want to tackle? Yes, not really new for me but new for me selling them on Etsy. I sold my handmade boutique style infant, toddler and girls clothing for about 7 years on another site and I would love to start making them to sell here on Etsy. I enjoyed it so much and hope to be offering up some great new things real soon!
Why do you craft? Because it is nice to have something to do that is all my own. I make what makes me happy, using fabrics I love. I don't have to follow anyone's rules just go with what I think looks good, from the color combinations, size, shape or how many I feel like making, I just do what I want when I am in the sewing room. The only problem is my mind works faster than my hands can, I have sew many things I want to do!
