HI! My name is Michelle Dally Cunningham. I have 3 kids (17yo daughter and twin boys, 12yo). I started my business in 2002, with my sister, Laura Dally Wells. I "retired" from being a Registered Dietitian, to stay home and have fun! My sister, retired from teaching PE, with 2 children.
Actually, I convinced her to stay at home so I had someone to talk to throughout the day!! My sister and I are creative and consider ourselves "DIY-ERS". WE would talk on the phone about new things we could create.
It all started 17 yrs ago, I had 10 friends having babies about the same time, and knew I could not afford nice monogrammed gifts. Soooooo, I convinced my husband to buy me an embroidery machine so I could make the gifts myself. HAHA (of course the gifts would have been cheaper than the machine). I then started selling personalized burp cloths and baby gifts on ebay (when ebay first started up). I eventually went to Market in Atlanta and opened a website to expand my product line.
After embroidery came Vinyl Stickers!!! I had the urge to monogram EVERYTHING! So I invested in a vinyl cutter. Since then, I have made stickers for company logos, car decals, cell phone stickers and much more!
As a female, we have a love for jewelry! One of my friends asked me to make some really neat bracelets for her with vintage medals. After some research, I got hooked into the antique world of medals and charms! I got hooked up with some dealers in Belgium and started a wholesale division of Dallysisters. I have a line of jewelry that incorporated vintage pieces. As times have changed throughout the years, I have dabbled in other things to keep my juices flowing and stay ahead of the curve. I started working with concrete in my jewelry, creating my own molds and finishing the pieces off with brass bezels. Once I incorporated concrete into my jewelry, I realized my pieces would be cool "ART". So, next I found a manufacturer to make my sought after acrylic frames. That is how/why I have Jewelry and Art in the same spot. I feel like my jewelry is art!
You can find us on Facebook, Instagram, Etsy and our website.
My website is definately a mix of all my passions. I am creative, yet not so organized all the time. So I hope you enjoy my website and please forgive me if you see anything that needs attention let me know! Ill fix it after I finish doing homework or cleaning up the pasta off the floor.
I would love to hear from you!
Thank you for visiting Dallysisters
