Meet Denise of Sweet Pea Designs by Dee, she is our Saturday Artisan this week. I adore her creations. Her dresses are so cute, oh how I wish I have a little girl to dress up.
Denise and I belong to a couple (or more) FB groups and she is such a nice lady to interact with. I'm sure you'll get a top notch customer service if you shop with her.
Visit her FB page, order a custom dress, I'm sure she'll be happy to help.
Let's get to know her a bit more, shall we?
Tell us a bit about yourself and what arts/ crafts that you make?Hello! My name is Denise. I am the owner and designer of Sweet Pea Designs by Dee. I design and make handmade children's clothing. Little girls dresses, aprons and skirts. Also bow ties, suspenders, shorts and rompers for little boys.
From a very young age I have always enjoyed crafting, and sewing. I loved to draw and paint, winning several awards for some of my drawings and paintings. I always thought I'd be an artist! But life got in the way. I got married, had two beautiful babies and there just didn't seem time to follow that dream. Years passed. After retiring in 2013, I needed something to keep me busy. So I decided to turn my passion for sewing into a business. Sweet Pea Designs by Dee was born.
There are many historic homes and Businesses in and around Alburtis. One that we visit often is The Inn of Maple a Grove. A wonderful local restaurant with great food. Legend has it there is a ghost named Charlie. It is said that when the fireplace is lite Charlie will appear!
My home is on 10 beautiful acres, where wildlife is always present. From deer, fox, and even an occasion coyote! Built in 1787 we too have a friendly ghost!
