ABOUT

Hi there, I’m Anna! Glad you stopped by. I’m a mom to two crazy and incredibly inspiring little girls. My oldest daughter had the curliest blonde hair when she was little and my nickname for her was ‘noodlehead’. It’s one of many nicknames, but it stuck, it’s fun and a little goofy – just like us. I’m pretty sure I’m just like you. I love to sew and be creative. Oh, and I like to use way too many exclamation points!!!

Like many of you, I grew up sewing with my mom. It definitely wasn’t my favorite thing to do, but I loved being able to make something on my own. Having two daughters gave me the drive to start sewing more and after discovering the blogging world, I never turned back.

I’m having fun creating, making up new things as I go along, discovering new techniques, and making my house a home. I wouldn’t be sewing today if it weren’t for the support of my family and friends along the way. Thank you!
