The drive to create … inspired by the people in my world!

Inspiration comes from many places, in my case it came from my family, friends and complete strangers.

My mom, wears with great pride, the custom appliqued sweatshirts I’ve been creating for her for years now.    Being asked by friends and strangers alike… “Where did you find that sweatshirt?” Her response was always the same… “My daughter makes them and sells them.”  Ocean Breeze Boutique was born.

Having five nephews and nieces, I find that I create with them in mind.  The boys love taggies and “Boy” inspired things, ala planes, trains, pirates and automobiles, while my oldest niece, who is a six year old “Fashionista”, forte is anything pink or dresses, bows, skinny jeans and anything her Auntie creates for her to wear.  My youngest niece rocks the latest in bows and cute outfits designed to show off her girlie side newborn style!

I always enjoy doing small boutique shows, talking to customers, who often times, come up and ask if I can make this or that.   Their ideas are refreshing and help to keep my finger on the pulse of what people want, need and desire in functional crafts.

Looking at my fabric and ribbon piles, I marvel at the possibilities to create, is today a bib day? Fancy pants? Bows? I never know what I’ll be making next as a phone call from a certain set of children can change my direction in the blink of an eye.

I look forward to creating fun, fashionable and functional items for you and your love ones to enjoy!

So when you have a moment… Swing by the new shop located here Ocean Breeze Boutique and take a look around!

Have a wonderful day!!!

Kat and the Kids!
