Owner & Designer

I started my business in 2004 because I love to create. I have so many ideas in my head and when I design something people tell me I should sell it.

I started out selling jewelry and painted crafts at local craft fairs but soon found out the market was saturated with those things.

I purchased a home sewing and embroidery machine in 2012 and made towels and household items to give as gifts and sell at craft shows. 

In 2013 I started making hockey team apparel for local kid's hockey teams but I soon found out that the home embroidery machine could not do all I needed to do so I splurged on a one head/six needle embroidery machine, software and designs so I was able to expand my business to include hats, large designs and bags.

2013 was a turning point for me. I decided to expand my business even more by including heat pressed vinyl and rhinestones in my apparel to sell. I purchased a 24" vinyl cutter, heat press and alot of software. I started making Team Mom apparel at the end of 2013 and people loved it.

In 2014 I took the next step and quit my full-time job to concentrate on my business full time. I needed to be able to make rhinestone apparel quicker than hand placing or brushing them into a template, so I purchased a rhinestone machine.  My biggest challenge was finding steady business and getting my name out there. 

2015 - 2018 my business expanded into local sport stores that carried my "Bling" apparel and I was also doing specialty shows. 

2019 was a hectic year and I needed to close down my shop due to a huge move from Minnesota to Tennessee but I still had hopes of reopening my business and expanding it to include businesses.  

2020 started a new year and a new decade with my business.  I am now open in Tennessee and working with Corporations and individuals.  I have expanded my business again to include laser etched household decorations and accessories including etched water bottles, mirrors, glassware and wood designs.  

I hope to make this new adventure a good one.
