How did you come up with your ID, is there a story behind it?
I picked my ID before I started selling custom clothing. It is a combination of my two daughter's names. Many times I thought about changing it, but just haven't come up with the "right" one yet.

So many things inspire me. First and formost are my kids. They are spirited and beautiful! I love to create for them. I can be inspired by the change of season, the weather, fabrics....just about anything.
