Hi there!

Allow myself to introduce...myself. (any austin powers fans out there??)

In a nutshell, I love simple, classic style; bags big or small; everything about the South and any and all sweets.

I was born and raised in Tallahassee, Florida and attended Florida State University (Go Noles!).  Moved to Colorado after college for a few years and then headed back to my home state where I got married, started Oatmeal Lace and had my son, Beckett. Now we've moved yet again and live in Chicago where we completed our family with the addition of our baby girl Emerson (who is almost one and a half!). TIME FLIES PEOPLE!

Oatmeal Lace was started after rediscovering my love for sewing and textiles, especially once I started planning my own wedding. We cater to bridal parties & wedding professionals; creating classic, heirloom quality accessories that can be customized to embody the feel of your special day or highlight your brand. 

Have something in mind that you don't see? Send me an email and let's collaborate.

Here's a little bit of the 'behind the scenes' video that the talented Steph & Robin Killip of Bubblerock put together for me:
