Hello Friends! I am the crafty girl, jewelry maker, embroiderer, monogrammer, planner addict girl who runs this blog. This is my place to share my life’s crazy, fun and beautiful moments while also running my online boutique The Dashing Pearl. I am Jesus lover, a wife to one awesome guy, momma to three little ones including twins. I also am a Disney princess dreamer, coffee drinker and yorkie lover.
I love most to be creative and crafty coming up with ways to make anything and everything absolutely cute, girly, unique, one of a kind or just flat out pretty.
Handmade, handcrafted or homemade is the absolute best! Everything is better with sparkle, a glue gun warming up behind the scenes, or with a monogram on it. My favorite things to create are monogrammed personalized jewelry or embroidered items. I am constantly thinking of ways and ideas to make and create fun pretty things; even in my sleep you can bet there’s some idea or project brewing! It doesn’t turn off, my friends even ask me to help them think of ideas for themes, parties, gifts, or decoration, or just about anything they need help with creatively.
I left my corporate life behind to craft and run my online shop and blog full time. I wanted more flexibility and the ability to be home with my little ones, not missing a single moment of their lives as they grow. A 9-5 job just didn’t allow that for me, so I created my dream job life instead. And since then, one of my passions has become teaching others how they can do and create the same thing.
When I’m not making something, you can find me with my family celebrating life’s beautiful moments – whatever they may be. My goal is to not only be a crafty girl, but also to be the best mother and wife to my family. So, you may see my occasional life experiences from time to time on here as well. We only have this one life and I want to live mine intentionally, being the best version I can be in all the things I live and do.
I hope to maybe inspire or motivate you live out your own creative life or even start your own craft business through the crafty nuggets you may find here. So stick around for some goodness, shop my boutique, and come back often! I love your comments, so say hello and let me know you’ve visited. Thanks for stopping by!
