"Although I have been sewing and crafting for as long as I can remember, I have only been selling my creations for about a year. I came from a family where my grandmother taught my mom and then me how to sew, do needlepoint, knit, crochet, etc. I stumbled across a market for reconstructed clothing items and thought, "Hey, I can do that!" Made a couple of items for myself and the rest, I put up for sale. The rest, as they say, is . I also hope to someday keep my grandmother's memory alive by teaching my kids to sew and craft. history!"

Here is an unexpected encounter she had as a child, in her own words.
"This happened around 1988. I was 13. My grandpa had passed away two weeks before Christmas that year. He was cremated, so we just had a memorial service for him. Fast forward to Christmas morning. All the presents had been opened. I was playing under the Christmas tree. My daddy was in his room, watching a football game. My mom and grandma were in the kitchen getting dinner ready.
All of a sudden the whole atmosphere changed in the living room. The parade that had been on the TV changed to a football game. At first, I thought my daddy had come into the room, but he hadn't. And I know neither my mom nor grandmas would watch the game. I look over to the recliner and there sat my grandpa! I saw him clear as day, could hear the game and everything.
My grandpa looked over at my, raised his hand as if to say good bye. And that was it. Everything went back to the way it was not 5 seconds prior. And, I went on with my day, as if nothing had happened."
