About Me

Hi! I’m a mother of 4 beautiful daughters.  Sarah, Allyson, Samantha, & Felicity.  (yes, I do have two red headed children).   I went through a divorce in 2010, and then found love again in 2011.  I’m now married and have 7 children! My dear husband has 3 sons which I love as much as my own daughters.

In January 2011 I started taking some college classes towards earning a business degree.

With all these girls, it’s no wonder that I love heirloom sewing.   I was introduced to heirloom sewing when Sarah was 2 years old. (wow! 17 years ago already?)  I went to San Diego to visit my sister, Beth.  She told me to “bring some fabric because I’m going to teach you how to smock!”  My first smocked project got done on that trip.

Beth sent me home with a new skill and a passion for heirloom sewing!  I just HAD to buy the sewing magazines she had… Sew Beautiful and Creative Needle .  It wasn’t long until I added Australian Smocking & Embroidery to my magazine list.

After a few years of sewing for my own girls, I decided to make things for friends that were having babies.  Before I knew it, I was making blessing outfits for friends that were willing to pay for them! That’s when I decided that  I wanted to make a business from my passion.

I have an Etsy SHOP where you can buy my creations directly from me!

So if you are interested in a one of a kind heirloom outfit for your little angel…or you’d like pretty doll clothes that aren’t mass produced by American girl…then please contact me and we can see what beautiful creation I can make for you.

    Amazing! My beginnings were as a tiny, unidentifiable seed, planted in soil and nourished with the basics – water, soil and sunshine. As I sprouted, my roots spread down firmly into the earth and my stem reached towards heaven. My leaves uncurled and the observer said I was “pretty”. I kept reaching towards heaven until one day I was aware of my strength and joyfully put forth blossoms of rare beauty – unique because all who received the blossoms were blessed. This is you, Missy. Love your blog.
