I founded Dismount Creative after moving to Houston from Chicago in 2010. In an effort to make new friends and do something more creative I started teaching DIY craft classes over cocktails in area bars and restaurants. Dismount Creative is now as a place for people to step out of their day-to-day routine and get together to make cool, modern crafts. When I’m not teaching I post my fashion and style DIY projects, inspirations and other musings twice a day to the Dismount Creative blog.
My name is Beverly from Flamingo Toes and I am a SoCal girl who loves to create! I spend my spare time (and some of my not-spare time) in sewing, embroidery, home décor, jewelry making, and blogging about my creations and adventures.
