To me, all that is pretty is about being unique, fun, and creative. Because that’s what I am. Life should be fun. We should all be unique and not try to fit in a single mould and I believe we all need to be creative in some kind of way. Oh and yes, we should own some nice things. Not in a materialistic way, but in a way where the nice things have actual meaning to you. I like things that tell a story, because we all have our own stories to tell. And all that is pretty is my story.
I am a creator at heart. I work full time (at a rewarding job) developing events and experiences for people and I love to create things in my spare time. I live in a small house in an interesting neighbourhood with my rescue from Mexico – Neva. I am ambitious to say the least and am a project starter. Not so great on the project finishing, but I am working on that. I have a passion for travelling and reading, and spent a great deal of my 20s gallivanting around the world.
I create all of my products by hand often using fabrics I collected on my travels. I find inspiration all over the internet and am incredibly passionate about handmade items and supporting local businesses. My fabrics are generally either crazy bright patterns, vintage or repurposed from something else. The same goes for my wardrobe. While classic, black and white bore me. I believe that everything and everyone should have some vibrancy and character.
I have been sewing for more years than I can remember and I am mostly self (or mom) taught. I am somewhat of a hobby hoarder and always have way too many projects on the go at one time. All that is pretty has been a journey for me that has allowed me to feature my creativity in a unique way. I am really excited about building more and more products that represent the same uniqueness, individuality, vibrancy and excitement I have/carry for life.
