hi! my name is kristin and here are some facts about me and information about the services I provide:
- born and raised in Washington D.C. (the city not the suburbs)
- former lawyer (7 years), NYU Law School graduate
- venice beach, CA is where we live (my husband, 2 kids – age 5 (girl) and 8 (boy) and our dog Penda)
- my husband and I volunteered in Africa on our honeymoon
- running and exercise are important to me
- morning coffee is a fav but so is friday happy hour
- YouTube videos taught me how to sew
- the beach is my happy place
After my first baby, I knew I did not want to lawyer anymore. It just wasn’t my true passion. So I took a major leap of faith, and with the support of my husband, I quit. Financially, it was difficult, but we both knew I would find my way. With more time at home, I started organizing, re-decorating and ultimately remodeling my own home. I LOVE to keep our home fresh, which means our home accessories are constantly changing, including the pillows. SO . . . naturally (haha), I taught myself to sew to keep up with my pillow obsession. Family and friends suggested I sell my pillows. So I did. I found my TRUE PASSION! I blog, I make pillows and I style products.
I carefully source beautiful fabrics, mostly vintage, for my pillows. I cut each pattern and every pillow is handmade in my backyard studio. I visit local shops and flea markets to source the fabrics and the other home accessories for my shop.
I collaborate with others to help spread the word about their brands. I work with home interior, fashion and kid products. I only work with brands that are authentic to my feed, which means I only work with brands I truly LOVE. I post about the products on instagram and my blog to help increase their audience and give my audience a head’s up about these awesome products!
