Those who bring sunshine to the lives of others cannot keep it from themselves. – James M. Barrie

I’m Yolanda, hand-lettering artist at Sunshine Letter Crafts, and I believe in this quote with all  my heart! So much so, that it’s how I came up with the name of my business. It brings me great joy to share my love of hand-lettered cards, gifts, and decor to cheer and encourage others. Personalized or custom requests are welcome! Please visit me on social media to interact and see more samples of my work, or visit my Etsy shop.

I am the owner of a sewing and embroidery business. I make everything from baby items to upcycled clothing for adults and child. I also create Memory bear, pillows and quilts. I can custom almost anything you are looking for. I can digitize and embroider most images.

Wow! Change is good!  August, 2017!!!

I am delighted to say I am taking my sewing business home!!! I look forward to focusing on my two passions; upcycling clothing, scarves and accessories and teaching beginner sewing.  My current items are on consignment in My Girlfriends Closet in Historic Downtown Apex. I will continue to supply them each new season!!! I am very pleased with my accomplishment of having had  a brick and mortar store for almost 8 years in Downtown Apex.  I learned a lot, met lots of wonderful people and have no regrets. Here’s to new beginnings!!!

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.

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.

Find your balance naturally.

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.

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.
