Meet the Designers--Karly from Paisley Roots

 
 
Hi! I'm Karly from Paisley Roots. I am so excited to be on this season of Project Run and Play! The whole reason I started blogging was to be able to be a contestant on here, so it's a dream come true! 
I started sewing when I was 20 and with how crazy hectic life is, I had an on/off relationship with my sewing machine. We started getting more serious right after I had my 4th child and then tied the knot this last year. I love to sew and do it every chance I get.
 
(this is what you get when you put a timer on...can you believe we're all LOOKING?!)

I met my husband, Corey, in highschool and we got married exactly 2 years later. We have 5 children, and even though my sewing favors a couple over the others, they all still get some sewn goods. Gavin is 10, Aevarie is 6, Zoe is 5, Paisley is 4, and Jude is 18 months old. You may be wondering how on earth I ever find the time to sew with 5 kids. Well, number 1 - my house is....well...it's "lived in", and number 2- early bedtime my friends. It also helps that my children love that I sew and make requests and will help. It's very common to see them surrounding me, one holding the scissors, another pushing the pedal....
 
I'm so excited for this opportunity to be on here and can't wait to get started!

  9. I feel like Will Ferrel on Old School when he yells "YOU'RE MY BOY BLUE!" - that's how I feel right now. "THAT'S MY GIIIIIIIIRL!" So, in a more toned fashion, I'm so super proud of you and can't wait to see you bring it. (Referencing two movies in one comment- yeah, i just did that). Love you lady and good luck!
