Who am I?
This question isn't really simple to answer. I am a Libra, who likes long walks on the....oh wait wrong site haha!
Okay okay, for real. I am a Libra but you didn't need to know that. I am a lucky mother to 4 beautiful healthy girls. Ranging from Toddler all the way to an almost sweet sixteen. My hands are full most days being a full time proud mommy & running my own business. I have an amazing husband who helps me so much. From laundry to cooking while I hit the gym to de-stress from the days tasks, he's on it! I have always been into arts & crafts. I took 6 years of Art between High School & College. I was a painting apprentice and learned how to hang dry wall and paint faux finishes on walls of very luxurious homes. I learned very early on how to sew, crochet & knit. as my mother own "Darned Delights" a sewing/alterations company back in the 80's & 90's. Our living room tables were covered in wedding dresses, prom dresses, jeans and more. I became tech savvy as my mother worked in a Corporate job and brought home one of the first ever word processors. I also took some coding in Middle School. My mother worked for a college so during middle school I was allowed to take one college course free a semester. I took a keyboarding class and now can type over 80 wpm (words per min.) with little to no errors. I was helping my mother with her business of website design & computer repair by the age of 17. At age 15 I ran a successful E-bay business selling clothing I made for club kids.
All of this led me to right where I am now. I really wanted to give my biggest passion a go, embroidery! I purchased a manual digitizing program. At the time it was new & only $25! I figured, if it works $25 isn't a bad investment to see if I can do it at all. At the time it worked and served its purpose & taught me manual digitizing which is exactly what each & every single designer should learn to do. These software programs (high or low cost) have auto features but if you don't know what you are doing you can get into a world of trouble just pressing it and assuming it works well. Ask me how I know? So on Mothers Day my husband purchased me my dream software, he saw my dedication, motivation & drive and he supported it.
I am happy to provide quality & affordable designs to everyone. I am constantly improving, learning and trying new techniques. Trying to find my niche and having fun along the way. This job isn't a job to me its fun, creative & allows me to involve my kids & husband. It is an amazing adventure & I love every minute of it.
