Frustrated that good vintage style dresses are either extremely fragile, the wrong shape for today’s bodies or too expensive, I turned to creating my own designs.

I started making clothes for my daughters back in the 1980s. They’re all grown up now, very much into the Vintage scene and my youngest asked if I could make her a dress.

So I returned to college, studied garment construction, pattern drafting and tailoring techniques, developing the skills to make any women/child a beautiful bespoke dress, jacket or outfit for any special occasion.

It’s so lovely to return to exhibiting at craft and vintage fairs, meeting so many new people.

And now I’ve started passing my skills on through a series of sewing classes; from beginners taking their first steps in sewing, to giving intermediates the confidence and experience they desire to create their own garments and designs.

This handmade paper bead roller holds your paper strip secure so you can wind a tight and consistent paper bead. The winding pin is a diameter of 1/8″. The solid wood 4″ handle is stained and varnished so that it’s easy to keep clean. The larger half inch diameter handle with a spiral groove keeps your grip secure as you wind. Color coded soft-red to indicate the size. The winding pin is approximately 1″ long and may very slightly as the tool is handmade.

As a doTERRA Wellness Advocate, I work with individuals and families to educate and empower them to use essential oils for their personal health and wellness. I chose dōTERRA because I knew I needed a way to keep my family healthy that didn’t cost me an arm and a leg. I found that option through the use of dōTERRA’s CPTG essential oils which are completely safe and 100% natural.

Take control of your health and wellness needs and become a Wellness Advocate yourself. I will personally help guide you through your own path of discovery. Together we will determine the absolute best approach to a more balanced lifestyle for you.

Welcome to Mary’s Floral: a unique place to get your home decor and gift needs.  My name is Mary Munnings and I have been designing for over 35 years.  I enjoy working with natural materials, cotton stems (bolls) and finding creative uses for found objects.  My latest obsession is with cotton stems, nests and burlap.  I just love the ‘farmhouse’ look.  My designs incorporate many re-purposed items like glassware, frames and natural products.  I create out of my home studio and my work can be found at SnickerDoodles,  marysfloral.net,  Etsy.com/shop/Marysfloral,  Facebook.com/Marysfloral1,  and at many area craft shows throughout the year.

Look for my space at the up in coming new home décor store Our Moments in Time in Holly Springs; a great place that showcases local artists.

 

Joyfully Sewn Endeavors Sewn and Embroidered Creations.jpg

I began sewing in 1997 making quilts for myself and as gifts. My sewing projects have evolved after having children, wanting to make them quality items that I know would last. I have gradually added embroidery to my repertoire, and I love personalizing projects.

Children’s Projects

  • I started by sewing children’s products as I loved the idea of giving a handmade, personal gift. I like to encourage imaginative play for children with my super hero capes for girls or boys. Let your child pretend to be their favorite super hero or have them design their own super hero so they can run around the house or outside while using their imagination.
  • My youngest son loved to look out the window but he could never quite see out. I decided to make him a pillow that he could use as stool to look out of the windows. He started to carry it around the house and uses it as a comfortable place to lay his head while reading.

Memory Pillows

  • With the passing of my mother-in-law I added another aspect to my sewing, memory pillows. I wanted something around the house that my boys could remember their grandma by. I can create these pillows using any clothing item that is memorable for you, and I can add your loved ones name or a saying to the pillow as well.

Embroidery Options

  • For Christmas in 2014, my husband gave me an embroidery machine. I can now add embroidery to towels, shirts, baskets, bags, and pillows. I enjoy giving teachers and friends personalized ornaments during the holidays.

T-Shirt Quilts

  • Do you have a pile of T- shirts, jerseys,  sweatshirts or baby clothes that you like, but don’t know what to do with them? T-Shirt quilts are a great way to keep memories in one place. These quilts can be made from sorority, fraternity, race and favorite shirts or even baby clothes.

Luggage Tags, Bag Tags

  • When traveling, I have always had a hard time finding my luggage. All those black bags look the same. I decided to make my own! These bag tags can be embroidered with 1 initial or all 3 initials. They also make a great addition to your child’s book bag so they can find theirs at school!

If you have any other sewing projects, I would love to help you out. I love starting new projects to help you customize a gift for family or friends.

I feel beyond blessed to be doing this job of telling your story since 2007.  I strive to create those ‘wow’ magazine worthy images that you treasure for generations to come. What is just as important, are those candid and authentic priceless moments, that happen in the blink of an eye. I also understand how important the little details, that you have spent so much time (and money) deciding and dreaming about are. In the end, it’s these laughs, tears, touches, questionable dance moves and loving looks that really matter.  It’s those priceless moments that you really want to document from your wedding day and I’m here to make that happen. 

 I strive to capture every moment possible and tell your beautiful story well. It is truly my privilege to both witness and capture the love and joy between couples and families. 

 I look forward to being part of your story whether local or afar!
