Here goes nothing...

So I have had it in the back of my mind for a while. I love to sew. I love to create. I love to design clothes and put fabrics together and take a flat piece of fabric and morph it into an adorable dress or outfit.
I also love this little peach. And staying home with her while she's still so cute & lovable is my main priority.
So I figured there was no better way than to just dive right in and open an etsy shop! While she is still a great napper and I can carve out a few hours of "mommy" time during the day.
I am my own worst critic. I sew a garment, and then pick it apart, sometimes literally! But I think I have had a bit of practice over the last few years (thank you family for being my guinea pigs!) and I feel like I'm ready for this.
So I came up with a name. I bought some labels.
I visited the fabric store approximately six hundred times to pick out just the right combinations. Then I would get a new idea and have to go back. My head is spinning with ideas and I feel like I can't crank out the designs in my head fast enough! But I managed to crank out at least a few.
So with a few dresses designed, I posted them to Etsy, and my new shop was born.
I have been open for a little over two weeks now...and I have had a few sales even! It feels good! Knowing that there are people out there who like things I make just as much as me. Maybe there are more of you?

Hop on over to my shop to check it out!
