Welcome SITS Friends!





Welcome lovely's to my little piece of quiet...sometimes. When Heather contacted me about being featured I couldn't believe it. I have met so many wonderful bloggers through SITS roll call and featured bloggers and I am honored to be one today.

If you've read my "about me" on the right side bar that pretty much says it all. I am married to a wonderful man who makes me laugh and gives me support and encouragement every day. We have two amazing girls. C is 4 1/2 (can not forget the 1/2 part) and M is 2 yrs. Not only do they keep me on my toes, but inspire me to no end. We are a proud military family. Hubby is a United States Marine and has been in for 18 yrs so far. I do not have time for many hobbies but when I can finally sit down I love to sew. I opened a online boutique called Sew Fierce in June of 2008. My favorite things to make are clothing for my girls, they are the best models ever.

My blog started out to be a way for people to get to know me and my label Sew Fierce. However as everything else it has taken on another life I never expected. Besides my day to day stuff I post Etsy finds, recipes and write reviews and hold giveaways for various companies large and small. I can not remember exactly how I started down this path it just kinda happened and I have so much fun with it.


Here are a few of my favorite posts. Mostly about my family with other stuff mixed in.

Can't Help But Laugh

Google Your Name


Thank you for stopping by today. I hope to meet many more of you and visit your blogs as well.

P.S. Until Dec 18th all in stock items in my store www.sewfierce.com is 20%-40% off. So stop by and take a peak you might find something interesting.

Happy SITS Day. Your clothing is darling! I sewed the whole time I was growing up, then 20-some years ago, when I was a dance teacher, I started a line of dancewear - Ms.Demeanor. Best thing about it was the name, lol. Took all the joy out of sewing for me. Your work is beautiful!

Jenny said...
