Our Story

My Story…

Well, it all began with a broken heart and a few broken Rosaries. I lost my mom in 2007, this was a very hard time and I could feel the presence of God in my life helping me though the most difficult thing I have ever had to face; it was a time of deep conversion and repentance for me. While going through her things with my siblings we stumbled across her rosary collection. She had quite a few broken ones. These pieces were so special to her, I had to fix them. In doing this I discovered a passion, and in hopes to make a piece that would be a family heirloom, I learned the technique of wire wrapping. I made them for everyone I knew that Christmas. A few years went by and my husband and I were hoping our family would have grown but it just never happened. As 6 long years went by I found a way to escape in prayer by making these pieces. I began making them for others and as donations. Our prayers were answered and we welcomed my first son to the family in June of 2014. Not long after his birth I brought an embroidery machine and discovered a new passion. Our prayers were answered again in May of 2016 when we welcomed in our second son. They keep Momma busy and grounded as to what is important in life.

 

Inspiration for the name…

I started the company as Erica’s Boutique and struggled in finding a way to acknowledge and give thanks to God as I wanted to do. One day while in the car, one of my boys had the hiccups. I told him, as my Mom always told me, “that means you are growing”. I pondered on it as I normally do when a memory of Mom comes to mind and it made me think…. we are always growing by his grace.
