Welcome to mine!
Hey there! Welcome :)
I just wanted to start this blog with a little introduction. My name is Valerie and I'm the owner and creator of Sabal + Rose.
Growing up, I always loved all things creative— whether that meant drawing, writing, or making movies with my sisters. I continued this love of creating into my adult life where I began my career as a character animator. I worked in film for nearly 10 years getting work on features like Hotel Transylvania 2, X-Men: Days of Future Past, Snow White and the Huntsman. In addition to film, I’ve also worked in games and game cinematics, AR/VR platforms, and even a theme park ride.
My husband and I have been married for 4 years now and have a one and a half year old daughter, Hazel, and our dog, Zucchini. When Hazel was a newborn, I decided I wanted to make a mobile for her. I really wanted something that would look nice in her room, but more importantly, would be interesting for her to look at when she was lying in her bed. After some planning, I decided to make this mobile I was envisioning and I loved making it!
From there, I started making more and more felt flower decorations and items. And that’s when the idea clicked. Why not start a business with my creations? That led me to found Sabal + Rose — allowing me to make my flower designs available to you!
I also love yoga, sparkling water, and dogs.
Have a look around. Thanks for stopping by!
