My grandmother used to knit all the time. My mother knit from time to time as well. My mother taught me the basics.

where do you find your inspiration?
I just try to look around me and see what is out there to see if something catches my eye. It was seeing a woman at church using a knit coffee sleeve that gave me the inspiration to knit those for my shop.

what is your favorite product in your shop?
Right now, it’s the reusable coffee sleeves! So simple but so practical. I use mine all the time. Plus, right now, I am doing an adoption fundraiser for a friend, so 75% of the sales price of each sleeve sold is going towards her fund!

what is your favorite handmade shop?
This is a tough one – there are so many great shops out there! I am in love with the dish towels from lucylucybangbang but I also absolutely love the scripture prints from Naptime Diaries.

Just be yourself. Don’t try to be something you aren’t. If you think you can do it – go for it!!
