Meet the Designers: Shannon from Googie Momma

Preview

the fact that i am sitting here WRITING MY PROJECT RUN & PLAY BIO is totally and completely surreal. like many i’ve been watching and dreaming from it’s very first season, and to now be an actual contestant on the 9th season?!?! well, i’m just about pee-in-my-pants excited. ;)

so i’m shannon, i blog sporadically at googiemomma, and i overshare. i’m also a run-on sentence abuser, a wife to one patient and long-suffering man, mother to five googies, and i think my jokes are very funny. i have always loved sewing—at 13 i bought thrift shop curtains and used a borrowed sewing machine to make myself costumes. when i started having babies my love for sewing really came back full force. dresses for my girls (4 of them!) have been my love, and now that my oldest is almost 14 i’m loving the added challenges of sewing for a teen with the deadly combo: curves and opinions. i’m basically self-taught—using a combination of experimentation, awesome blog posts others put up, and skills picked up from sewing books and patterns. full disclosure: i did have two semesters of home ec in 8th grade, where i made a stuffed guitar. that may give me an unfair advantage.

i’m ridiculously excited and nervous to get going on this season of PR+P, and i can guarantee that you’re going to love everything you see because the girls i’m playing with are awesome! #letsdothis!
