About

Hello! My name is Michelle and I am the author of this blog. I started this blog as place to record information that helps me learn to sew and cook and clean well. Growing sewIsabel blog head shot photoup I was never directly taught these skills, and felt they were useful to have. Sewing especially can save you money, make you money, and be fun at times. Also, I was an elementary education major in college at Illinois State University for about three years and feel I have some useful information from that experience to place on this site. Thus the elementary education category for posts. The website page and post category has tips I learned from starting this blog. This is a work in progress, and I am very happy you visited. I hope you come back and always feel free to contact me via the comments and or my email michelle [at] sewisabel.com.

Also, you can see I have an interest in natural and green cleaning and cooking and health topics. I chose the name SewIsabel as SewMichelle was taken and both names have a rich heritage and similar meaning of a good, godly, moral woman. Also, Isabel is a very beautiful name, and I felt it had a style I could work with. SewIsabel could represent more of a niche or style or personality. My current residence is Chicago, Illinois, USA and sometimes that is apparent throughout the site. I have plans to add quizzes on sewing and cleaning and other topics and items to sell via Etsy and the WooCommerce plugin installed on this blog. Recently, I started beekeeping as a hobby and have a page that records my experiences with that. This is basically a craft and lifestyle blog.
