Hello! I am a stay at home mom of 6, ages range from my 20-year-old that attends Polk State and a 2-year-old and a few n between. So there is never a dull moment in my home. I am lucky enough to be married to my best friend that I’ve known since high school. Just the thought of being able to go into my craft room and create something that will impact another person’s life and make their day extra special just melts my heart.

When my autistic son’s OT recommended we get my son a weighted blanket I was in complete sticker shock during my search, so I decided to make him one myself. I am so happy with how it helps my son sleep at night and calm him when he is over stimulated. Now I enjoy making weighted blankets and lap pads for children and adults. The deep pressure is relaxing and calming, especially for sleep. Weighted products calm and improve attention & focus, and can aid in decreasing sensory-seeking behaviors.
