Meet Stitch'N Love!

I am a National Guard wife, my husband is an AGR in the Chinook unit in Savannah, GA. He is part of the rear detachment this year while his unit is in Afghanistan. Not by choice.

I am a mom to a total of six kids, four that I gave birth to and two that I did not, but my heart doesn’t see a difference. They range in ages of 20, 17, 15, 13, 4, and 2. Some are here all the time, some are here not so all the time, but we are a family no matter what. Having mostly boys, the house is bound to have a video game playing if we are at home.

I started up Stitch N Love back in April of 2008 when it became apparent to me that working outside the home just wasn’t going to work for the family but I wanted to be able to contribute monetarily. My grandma suggested quilting after I made a few blankets for friends and I grew it into more. I quickly knew that online as the best place for me to start, so I created a website. I am now on my second self-standing website: I opened my Etsy site in June 2008. My first “sale” was winning an Alchemy bid in July!

In my previous life, I was a kindergarten teacher and may go back when my baby is a bit older. I taught kindergarten for 5 years along with a year of 4th grade and a 4/5 multi age. I love working with children, it’s the politics of the public school system that burned me out.

Right now, I am enjoying having my own small business and being home to watch ALL my kids grow up.

She's another busy Cafemom Team Member, with a handful of can find her HERE, HERE, HERE and HERE!

I LOVE her Video Game cases!
