Bridget McPhillips Entrepreneur owner

Hello and welcome to The Tumbled Stone.  

At The Tumbled Stone, I believe in well-designed, beautiful compliments to life. Your home accents should reflect you; allow me to help you design them! Life is a collection of experiences. My designs draw from my life experience to merge practicality and beauty with your taste in home accents handmade right here in America.

 My name is Bridget.  

I believe you should follow your dreams. I followed mine, to much satisfaction and now after years of study, corporate work, and government service I have succumbed to my inner artist and designer instincts. I spent years studying and then working in private industry.  I worked many hours for the Big 6 firm Deloitte and Touche, an accounting firm, then as a Change Management Consultant with PriceWaterhouse Coopers.  I followed this career path with a life-long dream of becoming a Special Agent of the Federal Bureau of Investigation.  My experiences in each of these stages of my professional development and growth helped shape me into the person I am today.  It was the constant calling from my creative soul that brought me full circle to the entrepreneur and designer I am today.  My training in creative design can be summed up from a lifetime of my experiences.  

Like my mother, the artist within me has always driven me to design and create. A career Registered Nurse and mother of 14 children, my mother also ran a small sewing business from out of our home making various home decor products that she sold to a Larimer Square boutique in downtown Denver.  I shared the one simple Singer sewing machine she used with my six sisters and seven brothers to create all the crazy things we would dream up.  Big outings for us were sporadic visits to a fabric warehouse in the city, an hour drive from our rural home.  Being one of 14 children fostered quite a few things in me, but one of the most treasured traits is the ability to be creative and resourceful.

I did not have a lot of material things growing up.  I learned the value of hard work and ingenuity.  I always remember where I came from and rely on all of my life experiences, which shaped me into the creative person I am today.
