    Hi, I’m Krisha! I’m a stay at home Mom to three kids Jackson 4 {Jacks}, Savannah Kate 3 {Kate}, and Annabelle Louise 1 {Annie or Lulu}. As you might imagine, things can get a little crazy. I sew to keep myself sane! The funny thing is, I used to not like sewing. Even funnier, I still don’t like it all that much. I do however, LOVE creating and designing. That’s where the real fun happens!!

    My story is pretty everyday I suppose. After being laid off from my banking job, I needed something to fill that void. Pregnant and chasing after my then toddler son was not enough to occupy my time. If you know me well, you know that I ALWAYS have to be doing something. I needed some sort of outlet. A creative outlet. So, I bought a sewing machine.

    I started small and worked my way up to bigger projects. I started to sew with a group of ladies. It sounds kind of lame when I type that out…but, they were a fun bunch and I learned a lot! What I didn’t learn from them, the internet taught me. I’ve spent many hours just practicing. I would make anything, it didn’t matter. I just wanted to learn. For a while I made kids clothes. I didn’t much care for that at all. Then I made a bag…I liked it! That bag caught the eye of my good friend and photographer Summer Halgrim of Summer Halgrim Photography. She pretty much stalked me {kidding Summer} until I agreed to make some bags to sell. As it happens, she bought the first one.

    After selling locally for a year, I opened my Etsy shop and never looked back. Honestly, I never expected the response I got. Fast forward two years since the sale of that first bag, a stack of orders, another child, an employee and Jacks & Kate is a thriving business.
