After surviving my first year as a stay at home mom, I wanted to find a purpose for my days aside from washing laundry and wiping butts. So shortly after Aurelia’s 1st birthday, Sugar Tart Crafts was created. What began as a “project a day” diary of my crafts, quickly evolved into something new. And now after 3 moves, a 2nd baby, and our first house, The Sugar Tart Crafts era has finally come to an end.
Welcome to Stitch & Pink
I love puns…Puns and pretty much any kind of play on words. I know it’s kinda dorky, but they make me giggle. Stitch and Pink came about as a twist on the seam finish by the same name, and the fact that I stitch…and I have pink hair. 😛
If I even wanted to take it one step further, I could pretend they refer to my kids as well; Corbin being Stitch with his propensity for head wounds, and Aurelia as Pink. This isn’t about them though. It’s about me. Well…that and I couldn’t think of anything better.
I wanted something a little more versatile that showed more of a focus on sewing, but also kept a bit of my quirkiness. The stitching and pinked menus were a no brainer, but the hearts and cute font are all about my personality. And with all the new white space, the focus will be more on my (hopefully) amazing pictures.

There will also be a Newsletter sent out monthly with “behind the scenes” sneak peeks, information about sales and promotions, and a bit of “Check this out!” inspiration. If you’d like to be included, go here to sign up.
Things will continue to change a little for the next few weeks as I work on editting old photos and links, but that covers all the major changes for now.
