Welcome to Designed to a Tee.
But who is Tee?
My real name is Robyn Fraser and I live in Belfast with my Northern Irish husband and son. I am actually an American who moved to the UK in 2003 after meeting my husband on the internet.
Our son was born in 2009 and I started Designed To A Tee as a graphic arts company. In 2015 I launched the Etsy shop and now split my time between graphics, knitting, sewing, writing, housewifing (It is too a word. I just wrote it didn't I?), mothering and learning to crochet. The blog has been up since I moved to Belfast, more or less, and I write about all sorts of stuff.
But why Tee?
A very long time ago (2000) my sister in law had a baby. When that baby was learning to talk she kept asking for Tee. No one could figure who she meant. Until she called me Tee directly. Figuring Aunt Robyn or Auntie Robyn was too hard for her, I just shrugged and said, okay, I'm Tee.
That baby is going to be 16 in a just a few months. She's taller than me. She is brilliant. She is an amazing ballet dancer. She talks me into buying clothes for myself. And she loves that she named me Tee so long ago and now everything I do is under Tee.
For the record, her little sister is also brilliant. Is an amazing actor and is nearly taller than me. That one talks me into jewlery and socks with elephants on them.
Actually, both of them are probably taller than me now. I'll let you know for sure in about a year when we are back in California.
In any case (I do go on, don't I?), Tee she named me and Tee I am.
