JM: When did you get started sewing and creating?

ANGEL: I've sewn for years, costumes, drapes, mostly interior design projects. I started designing children's clothes a little over a year ago when I found it hard to find cute matching brother/sister sets. I know that I became interested in sewing/creating from watching my grandmother when I was very young. SHE WAS AMAZING and could create the most beautiful "fancy" hats and dresses, quilts.........you name it!

JM: When did you start selling your designs on eBay?

ANGEL: I began selling on eBay a little over a year ago. I don't sell anywhere else right now due to LACK OF TIME...LOL. Before having my three sweet children, my previous "creative outlet" was teaching. I loved seeing children learn and I loved using creative thinking to teach.

JM: Do you remember the first outfit you sold on eBay?

ANGEL: I think it was a pair of embellished overalls. It didn't sell for very much..........LOL.

JM: Do you belong to any boutique group?

ANGEL: I am a member of several launch groups Boutique Eden Boutique Eden and Rockin Bobbins (both full of creative, amazing designers!

JM: Do you have a favorite item to create?

ANGEL:Anything with applique. I love how applique really allows a designer to be unique. It can turn any average outfit into a spectacular display of originality.

JM: If you could learn some new skills, what would they be?

ANGEL: I would love to learn smocking. I just think it is so beautiful! Crochet is another skill I wish I had time to improve.

JM: If you could travel anywhere, where would it be?

ANGEL: I love St. Thomas....one of my favorite places, but have not been to Italy..Isle of Capri. It looks breathtaking!

JM: What other things do you enjoy besides sewing?

ANGEL:Playing with and teaching my children. Just seeing them grow and change each day is my GREATEST joy:) I love tennis, but have lost the extra time to play lately.

JM: Anything else you would like to add?

ANGEL:I am so fortunate to be surrounded by so many great designers and customers, many of whom have become great friends! I feel like I'm finally doing what I was "meant" to do:)
