The Founder's Fairytale
My ENTIRE life has been a wonderful whirlwind of kids, kids. and more kids. Being a teacher for over a decade and owner of a performing arts studio, I've always spent my time creating and crafting adorable costumes, production sets, and creative items that make life easier. In 2012 I was blessed with and adorable baby girl(Who also happens to be my fabulous 8 year old business partner and assistant), and the creative madness began! I made her hair accessories, her tutus(which she twirls in daily), her room art, and even some of her toys. After countless requests to duplicate the items I made for her and as gifts for friends, I decided to retire early from the traditional education system and pursue my purpose in creating unique and beautiful items for the children of others.
But I couldn't stop there! As an educator I had a strong desire to experience the joy that came with working with children again. From that, I transitioned Dasher Creations from a custom handmade shop, to a company that that additionally provides mentorship and classes to adults and young learners who'd like to learn the basics of creating handmade items while integrating learning in the process. I am here to serve YOU! Twirl with me into the new world of Dasher Creations, where we strive to EDUCATE, CREATE, and PERFORM.
