My Story

After 16 years as a registered nurse my creative side was bursting - party designer and creator is where you'll find my heart and soul on fire. I have put a lot of time and effort into writing a new chapter in my life and I hope you will be a part of it.

 

Over the past 13 years I have taught myself how to sew, bake and decorate. I have planned and executed 27 children's birthdays (my own kids that is) and other parties such as baby showers, kids' Halloween parties and other milestone birthdays.

Fabric & Flour is representative not only of the mediums I use to create but also some values I hold dear to my heart. During the Depression in the 30's people 'scrimped and saved and reused everything possible' - Laura Caseley. Hence why flour companies used patterned material to hold their product. Once the flour sack was empty the material was reused by the family to make dresses and other clothing items - our modern day upcycling. By reusing the themed party boxes - we are eliminating some of the one time use of items that end up in our landfills and we keep our pockets fuller and our houses less cluttered.

 

As a busy, working mother I know how precious time is and how fast our society is running in order to keep up. I also know we like to gather and celebrate our children and other loved ones. I know that some people don't have the creative flair or desire to put together the 'perfect' party -  even if they did have the time. I want to use my creative passion, attention to detail and desire to deliver quality product and service to help my family, your family and our planet.

 

Sincerely,

Kelly Dolan
