I used to wake up, drink coffee, drive to work, teach the kids, grade the papers, drive home, eat dinner, knit a blanket, and repeat.
I was constantly exhausted and feeling drained...
The highlight of my day used to be coming home to knit, not because I didn't love my kids, but because I'm an introverted highly sensitive person (HSP).
I needed time to recharge from feeling the sensory overwhelm of interacting with the world.
I often found myself needing to recharge for days after simple interactions; that's when I realized I needed to find a different career - maybe even my own business. I combined my love of fiber arts alongside my need for a retreat and The Autumn Acorn was born!
Now it's my passion and my privilege to create and contribute to the wonderful world of crafting. It's my mission to provide a relaxing outlet and genuine community where everyone feels tranquil and welcome.
After honing my small business skills, I'm motivated to help other introverts and HSPs learn to build their own businesses and manage their senses.
Welcome to The Autumn Acorn family! I'm excited to create with you!
