Fancy Free Finery started in my closet-sized "studio", if you could call it that, in my then boyfriend (now husband) and my first apartment. I have always explored creative media of one kind or another -- I have a degree in Arts Education, am an avid Pinterest explorer, and have a nervous habit of always needing something to do with my hands. One winter day, fighting boredom and seasonal depression, I tore into some leftover scraps of felt, created the first iteration of a felt flower headband, and the rest is history. Fancy Free Finery has allowed me the flexibility and freedom to quit my preschool teaching job to stay home and tend to my family. I love being able to work in our home, watching my son Felix grow.
As a former preschool teacher, I have always been inspired by the carefree, playful spirit of a child, and have tried to find ways to carry that sense of wonder and open-ended freedom into my life as an entrepreneur. I am lifted up each day through the journey of motherhood, and I feel so privileged to be able to work alongside a village of confident, creative, and inspiring women, and the children they are raising, each day, both in person and through our social platforms.
My village includes a team of women across New England, who thoughtfully and carefully hand-craft each flower, made to be heirloom pieces to cherish as your little one grows.
We invite you to join our community + cultivate relationships with other women as our children grow by following along on our social platforms.
