Hey thanks for stopping by!!! I would love to tell you more about me, and my life.
I am married to the best guy in the world, Andrew. I know , everyone wishes they were married to a guy as awesome as mine. We have 3 kiddos with a lot of energy, and a dog with even more energy!
As a family, we like getting out and having adventures, which usually means spending time outside where my kids can get dirty. I swear my kids would live outside and only eat dirt if I let them. We live in Utah around the beautiful mountains, and yes, I happen to LDS.
I love all the nerdy things, Star Wars, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, Shark Week, mermaids, and other maybe more embarrassing things. I love to read and often leave the library with 10 books for myself. As an extended family, we love playing games, such as, Canasta, Cribbage, Shanghai, Catch Phrase, Ticket to Ride, and the like.
I have been sewing since I was in high school, even participating in sewing competitions. Yes, they do exist, and I placed in each one I competed in, so take that. I had a job at a bridal store doing alterations, and really enjoyed the precision that was involved. I now just work from home doing all sorts of sewing for others, and myself.
I love the challenge of making my own clothes, and I also can’t justify spending the money on something when I am perfectly capable of making it. Going shopping with me is really irritating, because I will look at something and say, “I could make that,” and have to put it back. Unfortunately I have not won the lottery lately, and probably won’t anytime soon, so all my sewing is done on a strict budget.
Being a LDS woman, comes with a few fashion challenges, and I can’t always wear the latest trends. I have to make sure that I am modest, and things aren’t see-through. And I don’t really love the limited options out there for me. I also need to be able to chase around my kids without worrying about accidentally flashing someone, or destroying my clothes.
The sewing I do for myself needs to be, budget friendly, modest, fashionable, and mom friendly. Not easy to come by.
I will share my projects with you, and I hope you will share your projects with me.
