Raised in the South, Victoria lives in Norwood with her college sweetheart, son (2010), and daughter (2016). In Victoria’s previous career, she worked as a lawyer, specializing in alternative dispute resolution practice and training. Victoria is happy to announce that she has overcome her goal to MAKE ALL THE THINGS, and given into her love of bag designing and creation to form Subversive Textiles, LLC! When she isn’t working, you’ll usually find Victoria attempting to satisfy her introverted self’s desire to sit cozily inside, devouring media, while crafting. Her outdoorsy, extroverted family makes sure that she doesn’t get too comfortable by regularly expressing their need to be outside and doing things, preferably with other people. Given that her entire family is filled with strong-willed individuals who consider the word “No” as an invitation to begin negotiating, there’s never a dull moment (despite what her son says.)

Do You Struggle With the Guilt, Too?

"I don't really have any answers, as I know that I have more than I can reasonably do, especially during the winter disease season that eats chunks of my time and simultaneously makes my children need me even more. I do know that hearing about other moms' (especially those I admire) struggles with the same issues helps me realize that this may be more a matter of all of us having too much to do, rather than being a personal failing on my part. That really helps."

Bertie’s Creative Creamery :: Our Favorite Ice Cream Shop!

0
The first thing that strikes you upon entering is how Bertie's combines the best of a classic ice cream shop — clean white lines, the unmistakable silver of the milkshake machines, and counters with stools you can spin around on. This classic atmosphere is more than skin deep, though. Every aspect of Bertie's shows it is a well cared for, local, family business.

Fall and Winter 2018 Handbag Trends

0
If the fashion industry had its way, we'd all buy new handbags for every event and change of season. As a handbag designer, I wouldn't object to that; but for most people, if they're going to change out bags, spring/summer and fall/winter are the main times to mix things up. Part of my job is keeping an eye on the trends of suppliers and other bag makers. Here are some of the trends I've seen for this season.
