Hello Friends! I am a crafty mom, jewelry maker, embroiderer, monogrammer, planner girl! I am Jesus lover, a wife to one awesome guy, momma to three little ones including twins. I also am a Disney princess dreamer, coffee drinker, and Yorkie lover.
I love most to be creative and crafty coming up with ways to make anything and everything absolutely cute, girly, unique, one of a kind or just flat-out pretty. And I love sharing with others to do the same.
This journey began when my doctor suggested that I take on a beading or knitting hobby to help my right hand and broken thumb recover from an auto accident injury in late 2006. Little did I know at the time, that my injury would turn into a creative business and blessing.
So, I decided to try beading, which became my new love. I’m a self-taught jewelry artist, maker of all things, and crafter. I’ve worked to develop my techniques while exploring all different realms of jewelry making and the creative world. In 2010, I began to experiment with metal. I purchased my first set of hammers and stamps, and right then, I knew that I had found a passion for making personalized pieces and unique one-one-of-a-kind designs for others. Each handmade jewelry piece is made with love and quality components and assembled with care. My favorite materials are sterling silver, Swarovski crystals, and of course pearls!
Shortly after offering personalized jewelry, it was only a matter of time before I started offering other personalized items such as custom apparel vinyl decals and so much more. My love for monograms and embroidery has grown, therefore, you will find all the personalized things in the shop.
Handmade, handcrafted or homemade is the absolute best! Everything is better with sparkle, a glue gun warming up behind the scenes, or with a monogram on it. My favorite things to create are monogrammed personalized jewelry or embroidered items. I also love decorating my home and living seasonally.
My space on the internet has evolved into a place to share ‘all the crafty things’ including fashion trends and simple classic designs for you, your home, and your family creating a sense of style and design to be as unique as you.
I am constantly thinking of ways and ideas to make and create fun pretty things; even in my sleep, you can bet there’s some idea or project brewing! It doesn’t turn off, my friends even ask me to help them think of ideas for themes, parties, gifts, or decoration, or just about anything they need help with creatively.
In 2017, I left my corporate life behind to craft and run Crafty Life Mom full time. I wanted more flexibility and the ability to be home with my little ones, not missing a single moment of their lives as they grow. A 9-5 job just didn’t allow that for me anymore, so I created this life instead. And since then, one of my passions has become teaching others how they too can create a life they love.
When I’m not making something, you can find me with my family celebrating life’s beautiful moments – whatever they may be. My life goal is to not only just be crafty but also to be the best mother and wife to my family. We only have this one life and I want to live mine intentionally, being the best version I can be in all the things I live and do.
I hope to maybe inspire or motivate you live out your own creative life or even start your own craft business through the crafty nuggets you may find here. So stick around for some goodness, shop my handmade goods (made by yours truly), and come back often! I love your comments, so say hello and let me know you’ve visited. Thanks for stopping by!
