OVER THE TOP BY LAURA!
It has been another rewarding year balancing my creative business with my full-time career! While I do make my own visions, I also create custom orders. It is very satisfying to see my customers’ expressions when they see what I have made for them.
All of my creations are one-of-a-kind. While I might make something with a similar idea or theme, no two pieces will be the same. Making my creations unique is very important to me!
How it All Started
For over 18 years, I have been attending the Kentucky Derby and Kentucky Oaks. I started recycling my hats to save money. For years I have been stopped in the crowds and asked about my creations. Photographers have taken pictures of me to display in local newspapers and websites. My friends started asking me to embellish their hats or create something to match their dresses.
After making a new wreath for my front door, my friends convinced me that my talents were being wasted! As a result, OVER THE TOP BY LAURA was born.
