About

All That Is Pretty is centred on being unique and creative, and having fun. It is a space that will showcase my creative endeavours and also my product line (more on this later).

I believe that everyone is unique and we should not try to fit into a single mould and I also believe we all need to be creative in some kind of way.

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, my partner and his son. 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. You can read more about those things at www.ramblingthroughlife.wordpress.com.

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.

I currently craft handmade cosmetic/accessory bags from unique and interesting fabrics: African prints, repurposed upholstery and vintage clothing. I create all of my products by hand often using fabrics I collected on my travels. I find inspiration from my travels, the internet and throughout daily life. I began making these bags after I fell in love with African fabrics while living in Kenya. I am naturally drawn to bright colours and exciting patterns and believe that everyone should have some vibrancy and character in their life. I like things that tell a story, and the items I produce tell my story. And all that is pretty is my story.

Thank you so much for visiting my site and for taking the time to read all about me.
