Hey! Thanks for stopping by Flamingo Toes!
My name is Beverly – but Bev is fine too. :)
Nice to meet you!
I hope you’ll have fun looking around and checking out everything – my goal with this website is for it to be a FUN place.
I’d love it if you find projects you like, posts you think are funny, whatever – and I hope you have fun making projects and maybe trying something new. Which is totally my favorite thing when it comes to crafting and creating.
Here’s a little bit about me:
I grew up in a creative family of artists and seamstresses, so it is no surprise that I love to create. I began sewing as a teenager and made my own clothes and room décor even then. That love for DIY, crafting, and sewing has grown to include sewing, quilting, and embroidery. I am now a Riley Blake Designs fabric designer and I’ve written three books. My most recent is Make it Mini!
My style could probably be described best as a mix between modern and vintage – I love taking old styles and making them new and fun again. I am married to my high school sweetheart, and we live in Tennessee!
One of my most asked questions: What’s with the name Flamingo Toes?
Coming up with a blog name is a tricky thing. Especially since I didn’t want to be pinpointed to just one thing. I kind of have crafting ADD.
I love to sew. And do embroidery – and make things for my house.
And I wanted to use this blog as a place to post about new things I’ve learned – from you!
So I chose a name that was generic. And fun.
Yes. I like flamingos. They’re pretty fun and kind of quirky. I hope like this blog.
No. I don’t have them all over my house or yard. Balance in all things. :)
