My Etsy Shop - Petit Cadeau Boutique

I don’t think I’ve been so nervous and excited about something since Avery was born!! I’ve been delaying the inevitable for a few weeks now, trying to get as many products listed as possible before I hit the “publish” button on this post.

As I shared here, I developed this desire to learn to sew not long after Avery was born. I borrowed my mother-in-law's sewing machine for a few months before she kindly gave me my birthday present, a Singer sewing machine. I quickly turned our formal dining room into a make-shift sewing room and found a great site that carries hundreds of styles of designer fabrics. After making many baby shower and birthday gifts, along with various items for Avery, I finally felt comfortable in my sewing ability.

I’ve found that I just love creating. I love fabric, I love giving personalized gifts. I love coming up with new ideas and patterns. It is one of the few things I do for me. After spending all day working my day job, I come home, spend time loving on my family, and try to get the house clean. After all of that it is very therapeutic and rewarding for me to sit down and sew. Even as I write this, I find it hard to believe. I never imagined sewing would be relaxing, fulfilling. Yet it is.

So, while I am still getting started and hopefully will someday have a much larger Etsy shop, everyone has to start somewhere. This is my somewhere.
