I am a self-taught crafter. I grew up learning to cook, sew and create by watching my mom. I am always coming up with new ideas (which often keeps me up at night). I have sewn princess dresses for my girls and made jewelry and painted banners. I also enjoy dabbling in graphic design. I leaned to make flowers in early 2012 after my mom gave me a book about hat making, which taught how to make silk flowers. I've come up with my own technique after much trial and error. I make my flowers by hand from start to finish, hand stitching each petal individually. All my flowers are made with satin, some including organza, tulle, and/or beads. I hand sew my flowers to clips, barrettes, pins, etc. Someday I hope to make larger projects such as floral arrangements.
