Tell us about yourself…I relocated to the Midwest a few years ago from New York. I am a mom of 2 boys. I have always enjoyed decorating, antique shops and re-purposing items.
How and when did your business get started? I stated my business in March 2015. It started with a picture frame. I made one for my desk at my full time job for a picture of my family. Days later I was getting orders from others.
What is your favorite product in your shop? Tell us how you came up with it. My favorite item in my shop are the HOME and LOVE pillow featuring the state of Indiana. My family has fallen in love with the and state we have made this our home. Plus my 9 year old son Aidan says "they are comfy."
Where do you find your inspiration and creativity? I travel to antique markets, barn sales, and flea markets to seek out unique ideas and finds. I look for fabrics, mason jars and wood to give new life.
What are your favorite things about being a vendor in a handmade market? My favorite part about being a vendor is having the opportunity to meet and talk to my customer. It is fantastic to know that the item I created will now be an addition to someone's home.
Give us 5 fun facts about you and/or your business
A fun fact about my business is how the name was created. It all started with a text message auto correct. My husband was trying to send me a kiss "mwah". The phone auto corrected it to mesh. Now often instead of saying I love you we say Mesh to each other. It is perfect for my shop because my items are all made thinking about family and love.
