I call myself “Mom-preneur.” Although Sweetest Whimsy was my first "baby,” I now have a family that is my first priority and have enjoyed being able to grow my business while raising my children. Sweetest Whimsy began in 1998 as Sweet Whimsy when I began designing and creating custom cakes for my friends and friends of friends; my business soon grew to encompass wedding cakes, specialty confections, and catering for private parties. That same year I became a Wilton Method Trained Cake Decorating Instructor and have taught approximately 2,000 students in 25 years. In 2005, I decided to follow a family tradition and began offering personalized invitations, stationery and gifts. When I decided in 2007 to create a new website to showcase my custom cakes and paper designs, I learned another company already owned the domain name for ‘Sweet Whimsy’ so a new business name, Sweetest Whimsy, and a new website were born! 

I accomplished something major on my Bucket List in 2018, when I became the new owner of the Sweet Home Vinyl craft store. What started as a craft vinyl shop has expanded to include other crafting media and supplies for sublimation, rhinestones, glass etching, polyester glitter, craft machines and software, and a myriad of crafting classes. In 2022, Sweet Home Vinyl partnered with our friends at Ibett Ink Embroidery & Gifts to establish a new home base for our in-person classes and local order pickup.
