Motherhood is our inspiration for embe! embe is the combination of two words in our Vietnamese language [em] [be’], which means “baby”. Ever since we became mothers, our creative focus has been on all things baby. We hope you and all the little ones in your life enjoy our creations as much as we enjoy making them!
Growing up my family didn’t have much, so my sister and I had to be creative about our toys. One thing that I will never forget was when Cabbage Patch Kids arrived on the scene. My dad saw how much I wanted one so for Christmas he made me one from a kit he bought at the craft store. That memory has always inspired me to be creative in all aspects of my life.
I’m a self taught knitter/crocheter. I also enjoy spending time with family, traveling, sewing, and sometimes a little mmorpg.
I come from an artistic family so I guess you can say creativity is in my blood! My mother taught me how to sew when I was seven years old, and I learned how to knit about six years ago. Being one of seven kids of two crafty parents, we learned early on how to express our individual style through the creative process.
Other interests include spending time with my kids and hubby, writing, reading, watching movies, cooking, working out, and bike riding. I’d like to learn my father’s craft one day – woodworking!
