Bio: I began to sew in grade school home economics class and Art was my favorite subject in high school. I have always been driven to make things and sew. When my kids were small I made them dresses and short sets. I started my Etsy shop, Pennyheaven, and blog, MyPennyheaven, when I realized I loved making Penny Rugs and upcycled fiber art pieces using thrifted fabrics. It didn't take long for me to incorporate Rag Rugs into the mix. Making my items Eco Friendly from sustainable materials is really the driving force behind what I do and make. My passion for thrifting and shopping vintage has been a life long obsession! My lifestyle and my home are reflections of those principles.
