It all started when...
I hated my desk job and was dying to create again. It had only been a few months since graduating from college, but I was itching to get back to making. So, I began hand-dyeing and screen-printing fabric and then sewing it into home goods out of my guest bedroom in Athens, Georgia. Two years later, I dyed all of the napkins and table runners for my own wedding. And almost two years after that, I was asked to hand-dye 150 napkins and a 32 foot table runner for a wedding. And the rental aspect of my business began.
In the time in between I've worked multiple other jobs, because student loan debt, and have plugged away at this little side hustle off and on as time, money, and creativity allowed. So to say this has been quite the journey is an understatement for sure. But it has been the learning experience that I'm most proud of and I'm thrilled to see what happens from here.
I currently live in Greenville, South Carolina with my husband, Jeremy, and our two pups, Charlie and Marley. If I'm not dyeing textiles, you'll find me trying to practice what I preach over at Alanah Wellness, traveling, trying new restaurants, and getting outside.
