The Beginning

I should've started this blog 8 months ago.  The day we moved to Austin.

When we moved to Austin I struggled with finding a job.  I was hired two separate times by two companies that could only offer me part-time work.  Going in excited, the jobs were not what I expected them to be, nor what I needed them to be.  So after a multiple job-related struggles, and conversations with my husband, it was time to leave those companies behind in pursuit of something better.

Now, 5 months (on & off), 10+ interviews, 1 temp job, and still no full-time employment later... I've decided to start a blog that will showcase my creative side.

For a long time I have been making things.  Most of these handmade gems ended up being gifts for family, friends, kids, etc.

My Mammaw told me that I have a was passed down to me from her grandmother who made clothing/toys from feed sacks.  It's not always something that can be taught. "It's in your blood and you are a fantastic, creative seamstress!"

So this is it...the beginning of what will be a beautiful friendship.  It will capture me in the unending moments of creativity, sitting down at the sewing machine to make something amazing!

I am the out of work seamstress.  Loving what I do and trying to make a living by doing it.
