Happy New Year friends and fam!

My business has grown and grown this year!  Thank you for continuing to hang with me, reading my stories and telling all of your friends about my sewing services (wink wink) AND a big Thank You for all of the awesome reviews on my FB page. They help me get more business.

Here is a review of my year in photos.

2017 lots of fun costumes were made!

Such an honor and privilege to have so many learning experiences! Check out the photo shoots! 2018 will be all about pushing forward and learning more about my craft.


2017 was an awesome year for upcycling dresses. These are incredibly fun to make. Some of them I cut live on my YouTube Channel.

I usually do a lot of photo shoots! 2017 I had to cut back and I’m not planning any new ones for 2018. I have to cut some things out to make time for new ventures.

I added guest bloggers and interviews to my blog in 2017. Thank you guest bloggers! Next week is Erica Blackstock. I have really enjoyed getting to know other artist and public figures in my community this year.

I did tons of trash to treasure projects. Here are just a few from the past!

I just don’t know where to begin or end! LOL. Here is full list of my classes. And if you missed it my very first PDF pattern is available now!

I made some awesome fabric bowls for gift baskets for my family. I used Crafty Gemini’s Youtube video to make this happen.

Thank you for reading,
