About Me

Hi there!

Thanks for stopping by Sweet Verbena. My name is Katy. My husband, one year old son, and I live in Texas. I'm an elementary school teacher, turned stay at home mom to my little boy, Charlie. When I'm not chasing after my toddler, what  I really love to do is create! Years ago, my sweet grandmother gifted me her old cabinet style Kenmore Model 43 sewing machine down to me, and thus the obsession began.

 I first discovered craft/sewing blogs in early 2010, which opened my eyes to a whole new world of sewing. I saw what amazing, beautiful things that you can create all on your own and in doing so, save a whole lot of money! Later that year, I decided to start my own blog and hoped to add a little something of my own to the online DIY community. 

My Goals for Sweet Verbena:

Inspire-    I hope this blog inspires and empowers you to believe that you can sew and create. You really can make your own stylish, 100% original clothes (that no one else will have). Please know that I am by no means an expert, I am still learning myself, I make mistakes, and you can too.

Catalog-   Sweet Verbena is a way for me to catalog my own projects and to share fellow crafter's inspiring work as well. While I expect this blog to be primarily focused on sewing/crafting/cooking, I'm sure that some of my personal life will work its way in as well. I see Sweet Verbena following me through the major events of my life and I can't wait to see how it develops in years to come.  

Network-  I hope this blog will enable me to connect with other lovely ladies who enjoy creating as well. Please never hesitate to get in touch with me. I would love to chat with you! 

Thanks again for stopping by. While you're here check out my growing tutorials section!
