It all started when... All my friends and their friends started having babies. Being a DIYer by nature, I started making custom designed iron on onesies for everybody and every baby shower I went to and people liked them… A LOT. So, I read some articles and watched some YouTube videos and had my husband build me a press to screen print shirts in the garage. Then, I found out I was pregnant with a little boy and while refusing to buy the "Daddy is my hero" onesie, I designed my own onesies and tees and sold them on Etsy. 

Fast forward to today... Although, I'm a mama to two now, I've found so much love in not just designing for babies, and kids, and tees specifically geared towards moms, but, instead women collectively; something everyone can relate too, something everyone can believe in, and something that sends a positive message that influences the people around us who see us wearing it. While, also pairing well with whatever vibe we have going on that day; relaxed with denim, sweaty with yoga pants, or feeling fancy in a skirt.

I'm a mom boss. So when I'm not playing legos, fixing a peanut butter and jelly, or running after my two year old, you'll probably find me doing either of three things...

1 / printing shirts out in the garage and singing along to whatever Pandora station I'm feeling or recently, a Podcast

2/ brainstorming and designing new tees

3/ shipping out tees to all you love bugs!

That's right, it's a one woman show... always looking for that unicorn called 'balance.'

Mama of two ( Crosby / 5 and Presley / 2 ) I have a background in graphic design. I'm a DIYer; see it somewhere with an expensive price tag and say "oh c'mon I can make that" kinda girl. ( My mom taught me well. ) I grew up in the Midwest and now live in sunny Southern California in a home my husband and I renovated ourselves. My goal this year is to learn to skateboard. I loved macaroni and cheese even before I had kids; Kraft Sponge Bob paired with a nice, buttery Chardonnay is my guilty pleasure. I love a good pair of jeans and a slouchy tee paired with some Vans. I like to think I have an eye for home decor, fashion, and design, but even if I don’t, it sure brings me joy. And PS I love what I do!
