welcome to my sunshine hut!

Hi!  My name is Mary Alice and nothing makes me happier then turning up some fun music, turning on my sewing machine and dancing around my little room making wonderful projects for my friends and family.  I love to sew, crochet, scrap book, decoupage, paint, mosaic and do just about anything else that is crafty and pretty.  The world is full of beauty and I love to do what I can to add more to it.  (This included planting a ton of 5 foot tall sunflowers in front of my boyfriend's house, hehe). 

While having a girls day out and painting pottery today, my friend Jordy told me that I should create a blog so the whole world wide web could know about my creations!  I don't know if anyone will read this or be interested in my little sunshine hut, but here's to the power of the web! 

My latest projects are custom embroidered tote-bags.  I've made about 15 for the girls in my graduate program.  I think my favorite part is picking out the ribbons to go on them and making the bows :).  I sell them for $15 each and get more orders every day!  It's so fun to make something that other people love so much! (and yes, I did have to make two for myself.  I justify this by having a tote for my school things and a tote for my everyday things *wink*)
