You may wonder why I do. Well, I only have one answer, it’s for me! I always try to do what I love. My passion has always been interior design. I started my studies in a local University and achieved recognition for my designs, models and plans.  Lead my University to winning the first-time ever award given to a student for the Designer Challenge.  When I became a mother to EJ, life changed completely.  From that moment, I dedicated my life to raising my son though my passion to design still very much alive.  I remembered how as a child, I learned and loved the art of crochet from my grandmothers.  I’ve always loved crafts! Creating art using paper, using semi-precious stone to adorn garments, painting and sewing.  At that moment, it felt like I was reborn, I discovered a new me, I am a wife of a husband who enjoys seeing me achieve my dreams, a mother of a beautiful four-year-old son who suffers from epilepsy and Cerebral Paralysis and a Entrepreneur. This year I launch Surprise! Made by Me, a collection of handcrafted gifts and party supplies created with love and excellence for my customers.
