Abby Maddy Designs Giveaway!

Hi! I'm Stefanie, the girl behind Abby Maddy. Mommy to Abby and Jack, Army wife to Ben and lover of coffee, chocolate and wine. I'm so excited to be here at McKell's Closet today and share a little bit of my story with you! Two years ago, I was the last girl you would have caught sewing, but when the hubby came home to tell me that he was deploying yet again I knew that I was going to have to make a change. I had been working from home for years, but my business meant that I often had to work in the evenings and on weekends. And with the hubby gone, and us stationed far from family, that left no one to watch our toddler. So we began praying for a change. A few months later when my custom tutus went viral among our friends and family, we began to think maybe this was the opportunity we had been praying for. But being the realist that I am, I wanted to be sure I could really pull this whole ‘handmade’ thing off. So I borrowed my moms twenty year old Singer and literally “Googled”” how to thread a sewing machine- and every step thereafter. And wouldn’t you know, that very week I brought that sewing machine home, we got one more surprise. I was pregnant. That was all the confirmation I needed. I gave myself a crash course in sewing, buried my head in manuals and YouTube videos and got to work. And I fell in love. Not just with sewing, but with the entire handmade community. And so here we are, not quite two years later, and our little shop {and family!} is growing, growing, growing! If you want to know more about my story visit my blog {HERE}.
