Welcome!   I’m Michelle.   First and foremost, I am a wife and mother of three amazing children.   I happily became a full-time-stay-at-home-Mom-homemaker over 12 years ago and it’s been a wonderful journey and a role I take very seriously.  I find so much pleasure in making our home a happy, silly, warm, comfortable and inviting place for my family.   Stitch a Wish Designs evolved through my passion for creating which primarily started with knitting and sewing.  Over the years, it has transformed into much more through my love for all things handmade including up-cycling projects, home decor, mixed media, DIY projects and just about anything that requires me to work with my hands.   My blog is a place for me to share what inspires me with the hopes of inspiring others to do what moves them.

Thank you for visiting!
