We all go through dark times in our lives and we are constantly tested. How we deal with adversity and how we "keep calm and carry on" shows our personal strength. For this Etsy Shop owner, life took a dark turn and when faced with adversity & injustice she took to her sewing room and Peggy's Prozac began.
"Sewing allows me to let go of the 'stress' by allowing me to focus on being creative, taking my mind off of the problems of the day" says Peggy,
"When I found out about it, I went into a depression-I only had two feelings, complete sadness or rage for months and so I would lose myself in sewing as a way of coping. I did not want to go on medication. When my daughter came home at Christmas, 2010, she saw all these doll clothes hanging up in a bedroom and told me I was obsessive with my sewing and asked how many outfits I had"
Peggy's Tireless efforts Minnesota passed a bill that went into law, August 1, 2013!
Peggy showed incredible strength and courage to over come the adversity she and her family faced and she was empowered to help others not suffer the same fate. Along the way she learned about her own resiliency, how to use creativity as an outlet to heal and how to inspire others. Peggy has some wonderful items in her shop that are on my personal favorite list and with more then 1,000 sales since 2010 Peggy proves she has staying power!
