In Upcycling, I try to not waste anything. So, I use the scraps as well to spread my message that,

“It matters what we say to ourself!”

Too often we forget to be kind to the one that is always going to be with us,

“ourself”. In looking at the scraps of fabric, I realized that it is

a lot like people; fabric is never too old, too forgotten, discarded

or trashed without purpose. Fabric and people can all be recreated

into a different, newer, rethought version of themselves to be

something new and useful again.

I’ve let the corporate world define me far too long so I decided to get back down to my roots. I was born in Fayetteville, AR but eventually ended up in the Dallas, TX advertising/marketing world as an adult. My love has always been art of any kind. The ability to create is one of the greatest gifts we were given along with the ability to love. I was blessed to be showing my fiance, at the time, where I considered home to be. A small 125 acre dairy farm in the Weddington area that my Mom’s parents had owned. We sold the property over 20 years ago to take care of them as they aged. That particular morning as we drove by, there was a “For Sale” sign posted. None of the land had ever been back up for sale to the best of my knowledge, so we called and left a message. The sign had been posted the night before by the realtor and we drove by the next morning. Needless to say, I believe it was divine intervention leading me home. We were able to purchase back 50 of the acres that is now lovingly referred to as “Hawley Farms”, after my grandparents. My Grandad’s old hay barn was still on the property so we cleaned it out and that is where my husband and I were married. The rest, as they say, is history….
