About Me

untitledHand Crafted With Love Project Bags & Knitting Notions

I’ve been a mechanical designer at an Engineering firm for almost 11 years and have always felt like I was missing a part of myself. I have a wonderful husband who I’ve been married to for 14 years and two amazing girls, 12 and 8 years old. I just recently found that missing piece in my life when I jumped into the crafty world by becoming a knitter and now I sew and make project bags and am the owner of Bana&Bean. Being crafty has truly become my new passion. Before this year I was a mother, a wife, a soccer mom, etc. Now I’ve added business owner to my many hats and have found this new obsession with Bana&Bean that I didn’t even know was possible before. I literally can not stop buying fabrics!! Sometimes I feel like things move way too fast in life. My oldest is getting ready to start Middle School in the fall, which makes me just a little bit sad. I’m not ready for my girls to be so grown up. With life being busy, I have learned to really make each and every day count towards something and that things can change very quickly. I do my best to go with those changes and embrace them. I am an eternal optimist and honestly can’t wait to see what tomorrow brings. =)
