About Me

Wife, mom, daughter, sister, employee, soccer mom, knitter, friend.  These are some of the words that describe me, and now I get to add business owner to that list.  My whole career/background in life has been in engineering, but I always felt like I was missing out on that one thing that I just couldn't put my finger on.  If you had asked me earlier in my life if I would be a knitter and eventually own a business where I sew things, I would have thought you were crazy.  Today, I couldn't image my life being any different.  First came knitting.  After that I became obsessed with project bags and more so with the idea of my project bags matching my knitting projects, but I felt like I really just couldn't find what I was looking for and so Bana&Bean was born.

One question I get asked a lot is "how did I come up with the name Bana&Bean?"  Well Bana is after my youngest daughter Savannah who Ioves to be called Banana. She is my nut ball crazy girl who keeps me on my toes. The Bean is after my oldest daughter Isabella who I call Bella Bean. She is my artsy, super loving, carefree daughter. They both fill me full of love and inspire me each day and its with that love and inspiration I create my bags. I hope you all enjoy my bags created with love and inspiration and they inspire you in whatever you use them for.

So how does it work?
