I started sewing and making personalized gifts shortly after the birth of my second son. It started because I couldn't find a bunting set that was affordable for his crib. So, I bought a sewing machine and some materials and made one. I was giddy at how well it turned out and I was happy to share with anyone who came to my home, that I made it myself!
Sometime later, as a reservist in the U.S. Army, I gained the only nickname I ever had - "Sweetpolly." They told me it was because I was always bringing sweets to drill and I reminded them of Sweetpolly Purebred of the Underdog cartoon (yeah I know, I'm showing my age).
Fast forward and I am now a single mother with three young children. I was working at the N.C. Department of Corrections as a Corrections Officer and was also a reservist. But, it still wasn't enough to support my little family. I needed a little extra money. This is when I put my sewing machine to work and started sewing and selling baby quilts under the name Sweetpolly's Creations.
I loved being able to offer blanket personalization to new parents. It was one less thing they had to worry about. I did this for many years and even sold baby blankets at the local flea market.
In between then and now, my children grew up and I became a grandmother. I changed careers and spent a little over twenty years working in the Federal Government. I also went to night school and graduated from Johns Hopkins University. Oh yeah, I got married too.
Currently, I reside in Maryland where I run my online gift shop "Sweetpolly's Creations." It's also where I live with my husband Clif, a couple of chickens, and our dogs Scottie and Hero.

For this gift shop owner and author, having a love for books started early. Her first job was working at the Highbridge Branch of the New York Public Library when she was just 15. She thought this was the ultimate FREE book store. One day the librarian approached her because the storytime presenter didn't show up...
