Hey, y’all! My name is Kayla, and this is my little About Me page. Welcome!
The summer before I started my freshman year of college, I found out that I was pregnant with my son, Theodore, who changed my entire perspective on life. Now I am raising him on my own, living with my parents, and soaking up each experience within the realm of motherhood. It’s been a wild ride! My boy is independent, loud, full of energy, stubborn, and proud; I am quiet, stuck-in-my-head, introverted, thoughtful, and obsessive. We could not be more opposite, and he has taught me more about being a woman than I ever thought possible.
My job with Under A Tin Roof pertains to this website right here and the fiber art made in our online shop! I began knitting three years ago and enjoyed it, but found it useless. I was stuck trying to figure out what to make, never finishing any project that I started. I was the same with writing. As a young child, I dreamed of being an author, but as a teenager found myself out of practice. My son changed all of that! He inspired much of what we sell for little ones in our shop and keeps me writing daily. My inspiration through and through. Knitting for littles has opened up the doorway for me to create weavings and embroidered art. I am the type of person that is good at everything they try, but find it difficult to become great at anything. I have found that running this business and mothering my son are what I want to be great at.
Though I talk a lot about my son, I do have lots of other interests as well! Some of my favorite things include reading, learning about herbalism, growing plants, Outlander, cold weather, lots of layers, pancakes, Indiana Jones, Scotland, genealogy, quesadillas, big piles of roving, and watching my favorite movies over and over and over again. Like I said, I can be a bit obsessive!
