I am an abundantly blessed mountain mama with four little ones under the age of five. My husband is a firefighter and I am a registered nurse, though our greatest joy is at home with our children. 

We live in the mountains of North Carolina with a breathtaking view of the continental divide from the home my husband built with his own hands. We named our home “Lone Pine” after an old family homestead.

I designed the Snuggle Down in 2009. Until then, my 8 month old son was the only one in our home who did not sleep nestled under the year-round comfort of a down blanket. He slept in a fleece sleep sack, which seemed like an ideal combination of safety, warmth and softness for an active baby. However, the soft fleece began to roughen and pill, and the velcro fasteners began to harden and curl after several washes.

I marveled at the thought of my baby contentedly snuggled in the softness of a goose down sleep sack that would stand the test of time.

After several experiments with sketching and producing an original pattern, I successfully created the Snuggle Down. I made several for family and friends, and progressively improved the product in both aesthetics and function. The unique adjustable feature with snaps (patent pending) highlights the safety and enduring value of the Snuggle Down.

The handcrafting of a Snuggle Down is a several step process in which I give careful attention to quality, durability and detail. My vision is that it will be passed down to subsequent siblings, and even to other families, as it is eventually well-loved and outgrown.

“I will sing of the Lord’s great love forever; with my mouth I will make your faithfulness known through all generations. I will declare that your love stands firm forever, that you established your faithfulness in heaven itself.”  Psalm 89:1-2
