This blog came to be from my experiences with crafting and enjoying being creative.
I started out sewing in high school, yes I'm showing my age. hehe I have always liked making things but was never really consistent due to growing my family and going to school to become a special education teacher. Now that my girls are grown and I have been teaching for a few years, 7 to be exact, I decided to get back into crafting. I'm a really good copier. If I see it, I can probably duplicate it. So, last year I moved to a new classroom and had a couple big bulletin boards to decorate. I goggled how to make big paper flowers on Pinterest and the rest is history. Look out for pictures of my bulletin boards in the near future.
I started doing my own nails a few years ago, which came in handy when Covid hit and shut down all of the salons. (I may post pictures later) I always cut my girls hair when they were little..I think I did a pretty good job. wink. wink. There's a common thread, I like doing things myself if I can. You'll see more of the crazy things I've done throughout my blog in the future..
Fast forward to this April (2020) when my sweet little granddaughter, Saylor Grae was born (a preemie) at the beginning of the Covid Pandemic. I wanted to make something to cover her carseat so that people wouldn't be tempted to touch her. Sooo, I made a couple car seat covers. My friends loved them and encouraged me to sell them. I was very apprehensive since I was not a professional seamstress and didn't really know what I was doing. I ended up jumping in with both feet and making different printed covers. They turned out so cute!
I was thinking that the moms need something fun to go along with the carseat covers, so I started making cute customized cups! Who doesn't love a cute cup, right?! It was perfect timing. I was on summer break from teaching and we were in a pandemic! I had a Cricut machine and I put vinyl on anything I could in my house! haha
I had to stay home anyways, why not craft all day! haha Well, when I wasn't holding our precious baby girl.
I love the name my daughter Kylie and son-in-law Nick picked out for the baby, so I asked them if I could name my business after Saylor. They thought it was a great idea and gave me their blessing.
Running my business has been a learning curve but it's been a lot of fun. I try to get the girls involved as much as I can...And Nick comes up with some pretty good ideas too! ;)
Thanks for reading about me. I look forward to getting to know you too!
