I find that as I grow older I get this urge to pick up hobbies and skills I enjoyed in my youth. (In this case, youth = middle school.)  You know like taking gymnastics, re-learning how to read music, and cutting up my clothes.

While I can’t see my gymnastics career launching off or my music skills going further than singing in the shower, I did however see a future in cutting my clothes up. Well, cutting them up and putting them back together in a cute manner.

On no specific cold and blistery New York evening, I was sorting through my old clothes – distraught with the thought of throwing them away. They had traveled many miles and seen memories made, yet had rested in my drawers for a bit too long. I wanted to give these items – with ample life left to live, a fresh face. I proceeded to bust out my dusty Bernina, and fashioned these drab clothes into fab accessories! Thus was the birth, from the comfort of my Manhattan apartment, of Sparrow fashions – a brand created for the artists, the explorers, and the dreamers.

Each item is as individual and unique as my customers. I create each one by hand in my humble New York City abode, with the materials coming from clothes, crafts, and broken jewelry passed down to me from family and friends – giving each piece an identity of its own. I pride myself in turning one person’s (or my own) forgotten treasures into an individually hand-crafted fashion accessory.

Obviously I would love if everyone wanted to buy an adorable new hair accessory, but I know it may not be everyone’s ‘thing.’ That’s okay (kinda :) ), you can still help a sista out by liking my etsy shop, sharing it on the social media outlet of your choice, or just telling all your friends how much you like my stuff.  See, it’s so simple.

Below is a tiny taste of what I’m selling, and I’d love to hear what do you think!  Go ahead and leave your feedback in the comments section, pretty please.

Here’s to letting my crafty side show.

looking back; looking forward

looking back; looking forward

This is just a little introspective post inspired by comparing my old and new passports – take it for what it is.  I meant to write this post when I had to got my new passport a few months back, but don’t you often find that things you mean to do, simply fall through the cracks?  I’ll just tell myself that this is a better time to publish the post since it’s my birthday and an appropriate time to…
