Hey! I’m Autie {short for Autumn}, a mom of three cute little kids.  I’m lucky enough to get to stay home with the three of them which keeps me very busy.  In my spare time, I love to make things for them, myself and for our home. I’ve been ‘crafty” my whole life, as growing up, my mom always had fun projects for me and my sisters to do. I inherited from her that love for creating things, but I only learned how to sew about 8 years ago, just before I got married. My mother-in-law taught me how to quilt and sew to pass the time in between baseball games {this was back when my hub played}.  I LOVED it, and was soon off making quilts and skirts on my own.  I am still very much a rookie, and I’m nothing close to a seamstress, but practice makes perfect!  While I do have a love affair with my sewing machine, I also love to dabble in paper-crafting, painting, embroidery, appliqué, refinishing furniture, etc., and I love all of it. I hope to share my love of crafting with you!


My name is Jen and I am a stay at home mom of two darling kids.    I grew up with an artist father and a musical, crafty mother and luckily inherited some creative genes, which help me stay sane in my {neverending} job.   Fabric is my medium of choice, though very infrequently I dabble in other types of craft.  I love to design, make and remake clothes – mainly for my daughter and myself. I learned how to sew when I was fifteen, a skill that came in handy when formals and prom came around.  It was so fun to make my own dress  just the way I wanted it, and my date got a matching bow tie and vest! {Whether he  wanted to or not…}  I thought it looked pretty cool, especially the lacy flowered ones.  🙂 I started a fashion design  program in college, but it didn’t work out, and ended up graduating in  English instead.  After all these years, my fashion designing dreams  never went away, and so now in a small way, I hope to revive them.  Here  is to old dreams and new beginnings!
