My Journey - “A bird sitting on a tree is never afraid of the branch breaking, because her trust is not on the branch, but on its own wings.”
It took me a while and some tough times to figure that out. It also took a wonderful community with unconditional love and caring to show me that out of struggle comes strength. Many kind people gave me opportunities to be creative and chase my dreams. Today, my life as a business woman and single mother of two wonderful adults is at times hectic and chaotic and I couldn’t be more grateful. The business continues to grow and many days I find myself working around the clock. But the joy that comes from creating beautiful items for you to enjoy is worth every late night!
My Work – “Look at usual things with unusual eyes.”
The Vintage Home Studio is my creative outlet. Through the business, I’m able to create custom, handmade and hand crocheted decorative towels that are vintage-inspired with a fresh and modern twist that can work with any style décor. And…unlike the expensive “look but don’t touch” designer towels, mine are affordable and meant to be used and washed again and again.
The very best part of the process is picking fabrics, colors and patterns that are on-trend and maybe even a little ahead of the curve. Mixing the fabrics with my signature crocheted finishing touches is what makes a towel from The Vintage Home Studio unique. I especially enjoy keeping the assortment fresh and distinctive so most are limited quantities…just a few of each design. My collection currently includes kitchen and bath hand towels. New items are in the planning stages and will be introduced very soon!
My Passion - “You have two hands. One to help yourself, the second to help others.”
I will never forget where I came from and the people that helped and supported me along the way. The faith and resilience that come from those life experiences are wasted if not shared to help others. So as my business grows, so will my commitment to my community…to help bring people together, to provide employment opportunities and to honor my “Made in the USA” pledge. I also intend to give back by helping women who are struggling, find confidence in themselves and believe that it’s never too late to chase their dreams. In addition, I look forward to bringing women together to share and celebrate their ideas and successes. I’ll always be grateful to those who share their love for my designs and will look for opportunities to do the same for others.
Thank you so much for stopping by! I look forward to engaging with you and sharing ideas with you as The Vintage Home Studio continues to grow and explore new opportunities!
