My Story - How Groovy Giftables Began
If you are looking for some southern specialties, you've come to the right place. My product designs are created in my homes near Plant City, FL. I offer made to order items I create in my studio, as well as custom and personalized items that are designed when an order is received. I love finding solutions to give my customers exactly what they are looking for! If you don't see something to specifically suit your needs or taste, get in touch with me and I will be happy to discuss a custom solution. :) I have been in design for 17+ years and there is rarely a request I can't accommodate.
I've been married to my best friend since 1998, and that same year our son was born extremely premature at under 23 weeks along in my pregnancy. He was a micro-preemie born smaller than most doctors had seen at that time, weighing just 1 pound and 3 ounces and only 11.5 inches long.
It was so important to be able to stay home with him once he came home from the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) after 104 days. I was able to take my hobby and love of all things digital - web design, graphics, illustration, digital scrap booking, and photography and grow them into successful businesses.
This was perfect for our family of three, and even more so when two and half years later our daughter was also born a micro-preemie at just 25 weeks along 12.5 inches long, she also weighed just 1 pound and 3 ounces (although heavier than her brother had been by mere grams) and she spent 78 days in the NICU.
They have both flourished against many odds, and I still continue to work from my home studio which allows us to homeschool as well. I've been very blessed to be able to have such miracles in my life, a great husband to raise them with, and to do what I love to do…
