While embroidery machine is running I am preparing the Senior shirts that were ordered. They will be ready for pickup very soon.

I apologize for going off grid for a while. I was struggling with the heartbreak of an Ohio Department of Commerce forced eviction due to my landlord’s failure to comply with their building codes. Then I had to work to keep the business above water with the COVID19 closures to which I had to comply…. I had no sales but all the bills were still due. During all this I was trying to find a place to move to and with no luck in that I ended up having to move back to the house where I had yet another challenge …. Finding Room! Garments are all packed in a trailer, displays are packed in the garage and an unused bedroom, and then there's all my equipment. Currently, my work area is squished into a living and dining area. Not the best scenario but it will have to do until I find a new location. I have had some options for relocation but each comes with its share of pros and cons and I am working to find the one that tips the scale in the right direction.

With all these issues thrown at me, I had mentally run into a wall that I am still trying to pull myself over. I may not have reached the top of the wall yet but I have Faith that He will make me a way when the time is right. I pray that you all bear with me as I work through this nightmare. The biggest struggle right now is turn around time because suppliers are mostly closed and I cant operate as normal. If you have a pending order I promise you I am working on it and will have it completed as soon as possible. Those of you contemplating ordering, let's chat about your needs and see if we can work something out. I am making the most of this situation and am ready to get back to the business of creating memories for you, my customers.

One thing I am thankful for during this darkness is that once all is over I WILL be back, bigger and better than before!


TEMPORARILY CLOSED DUE TO COVID-19. Please know I am still there (when not at work- govt deems me essential) working on orders so they are ready for pickup as soon as we are allowed to re-open.

I wish the best of health- physical and mental - for all my customer and friends. Everyone please stay safe and follow all recommendations given by our governors at this time! We will see an end to this if we all work together in the fight.


Those hoping to catch me before close at 7 tonight.... stay home. Sorry but my son is in town and we are visiting with my parents while he is here. Figured one hour wasn't much but still putting it out there.

I will be in tmw as scheduled.


Here are some upcoming dates that I will not be in the shop as scheduled: FEBRUARY 6, FEBRUARY 15, AND I WILL LEAVE AT NOON ON FEBRUARY 27. PLEASE MAKE NOTE OF THESE DATES.


Busy design day yesterday.... now today I get to put everything together and get some orders out the door!


Sorry for the late notice. I have a doctor appointment tmw. I thought it was earlier and I’d be back In time but I just looked and the visit is at 1:45. This means I won’t get able to be there at 2:00 to open. I will get there as soon as I am done.


Home at 3am, asleep maybe by 4.... up at 7am to deliver to Toledo and now home working on some hand work here at house. Who needs sleep?! MEEEEEEE. LOL.



Well I am home and almost finished with Christmas orders. A little hand sewing to do tomorrow and some family items to cut and press for our get together on the 26th..... thank you Dean’na for helping out tonight! I’d still be there finishing up without you. Who says we’re too old to stay out late?!


Got a lot done but didn't make it to the finish line. I am tired so I will wrap it up for tonight and return tmw. I am going to have a lazy morning though so will be afternoon before you can find me back here!

For those of you with non-Christmas orders in waiting..... the line is getting shorter and I appreciate your patience as we get through the holidays.



I am back from Michigan and at the shop for the evening. Anyone wishing to pick up or purchase those last minute gifts can come by tonight, tmw and Saturday. Likely Sunday for a bit too.

Amy Mullins, Wendy, Stephanie,Patricia, Todd Bunge, Danielle Little, Greg Sampson, Sue, Jamie Hazleton, Alexus, Angela Decker, Jamie Harp, Ginger....... gotta get working away on more Christmas and regular orders so hope to see all of you soon!

Hoping to have my 2019 books cleared by mid-January so please try to complete your orders by then. Thank you.


Apologize for late notice - things are crazy this month! I am at a training for the village today and won’t be in the shop. I will be in Friday Saturday and likely Sunday.

To jump ahead, same schedule next week. I have to go to the state up north to watch grands. (granddaughter has an appointment at U of M hospital on the 19th. We’ll be sure to dress her in scarlet and grey when she goes! 😉)
