I'm Abby and I am many things. I am a mother to a very smart 5 year old boy, a full time college student, and a wife to my soulmate and best friend. I am also a maker. I have been making things for as long as I can remember. I learned how to sew from my grandmother at a young age; She used to tell me I could do whatever I wanted and it really unleashed and nurtured my creativity. I started Studio1824 a few years ago while I was a stay at home mom. When I had free time I would make things here and there but I really enjoyed creating items for other people. I am also a giver. I LOVE to help people and make them happy. So when my dog passed away, my family and I were left with a hole in our lives. We missed Hurley so much and just wanted to hold her again. Thus, the pet pillow idea was born. I know other companies and crafters have been making pillows like these, but I can't imagine that theirs are made with the love that I put into mine. I truly enjoy creating these pillows for people. For some they are just silly gifts and others they are a way to heal and provide comfort. I cherish being able to help someone, even if it is a fun present and makes someone smile. I hope you are inspired when reading this to help someone and create something with love from your heart.
