My beautiful Mom




My mom was one-of-a-kind. She fled from her home in Vietnam before the peak of the war to a refugee camp here in the states. It was there that she met my dad and after just 10 days, it was she who proposed to him. She was never one to wait for things to happen. She made things happen. She had a love for cooking and boy was it was delicious. People still remember her fabulous egg rolls and fried rice. It still baffles my mind that she was able to have meals for us everyday while still working a full time job. She never seemed tired nor did I ever hear her complain. She just did it. She took care of four kids and worked hard to provide for us. Oh, don’t let me forget to mention the cleaning. She loved to keep things clean. It was a weekly ritual with her. Every Sunday, she would be up at the crack of dawn to clean the entire house while I was still in bed. And I wouldn’t even think of trying to do it for her because it wouldn’t be as good as how she did it.


She was an amazing person inside and out. Though she was taken too soon from us, she has touched so many hearts.


She fought a good fight until the end. She was able to stay with us to see me marry the love of my life and celebrated my brothers’ 18th birthdays. As painful as it was to see her go, I know that she is in a better place now. She was a super mom and I hope she knew how appreciated she was.


I am not a mom yet, but I hope I can be as great as she was. I will love you always mom!

Introducing a Modern Line


I’d like to introduce you to my new modern line of clutches.

The first clutch is a ruched clutch, which would work great for a night out on the town. It’s large enough to fit your necessary accessories with an attached wristlet to always keep it by your side.

The second clutch works great for everyday occasions. It features modern lines on either side of the clutch and the perfect size to grab and go.

Baby Nguyen Quilt


The hubby and I have been in the  process of adopting a baby girl from the Republic of Moldova, which we started in August 2012. As we continue to move forward with our paperwork, I slowly become more and more anxious. As I was cleaning my office one day, I realized that I have a lot of scrap fabric. I thought to myself, “what can I do with all this fabric?” I decided to make a quilt for our baby. I have never talked a project this large but I was ready for the challenge. I quickly found tutorials online to help me but I ended up using this tutorial from Fiskars. It seemed like a good beginner quilt project. I pulled out fabrics from when I first started to sew to ones that I recently used. One fabric that I choose was a corduroy from the first bag I ever made. Others include different prints with yellow being the main color. I choose yellow because it’s one of my favorite colors as well as my late mother.




After cutting all the fabric squares and laying out a pattern, I started sewing the pieces together. I tried to be as precise as possible but the lines didn’t always lined up. It’s not the most perfect quilt ever made but I love it. I can’t wait for our baby girl to cuddle up with it.


When our paperwork is finally processed and we’re matched up, I plan on making another quilt, with fabrics purchased from Moldova. That way, she’ll have a quilt from her old home and one from her new home.
