when did you open your shop?
I opened my shop when my twin girls were about three months old, in February 2010. I started by making ruffle rompers and would get requests from friends to make some for them. Then their friends wanted some, so I opened a little shop!

how did you learn to do what you do?
My mother taught me to sew at a young age. All throughout high school I would make my own clothes or change-up store bought clothes

where do you find your inspiration?
Everywhere! Recently Pinterest has been a huge inspiration! A lot of times I’ll see something amazingly cute online and recreate it with a few twists.
