She was looking for a product that would add style to her boots and compliment any outfit. When that product couldn’t be found, she decided to create it herself.

Amy didn’t have any experience in the fashion industry and had no idea how to go about getting her product made. She didn’t even know how to sew! But she borrowed her mom’s sewing machine and took it one step at a time.

Two years later, here she is, growing a successful business.

Amy’s been happily married for 20 years and has two sons, ages 12 and 14.
