GlindaBunny's Shop Announcement

I make stuff... lots of stuff. Usually I make things to fill a need or to vent creative urges. Art, however, needs no reason.

I stay home with our three young autistic children, one of whom has a hypoplastic right heart. My husband is a busy front end web developer. I'm a believer in neurodiversity and autistic self advocacy. Many of my projects address my kids' sensory needs. If you want to talk about your experiences with children on the autism spectrum, feel free to send me a message. I can help you brainstorm solutions to their unique needs. I know how families of special needs kids can be strapped for cash, energy, and time. We are too (yay never ending medical bills and insurance that doesn't cover everything), but I still have resources I'd be happy to share with other families in need. Even if it's some squares of various tactile fabrics so you can make a sensory book or lap blanket for your child but have no spare money, let me know and I'll try to help. We're all connected.

I post some of my projects with pictures and instructions on Instructables.com. I'm a featured author there with the user name SuperSoftDrink. I also have a blog at http://rachelfaul.tumblr.com, but my pictures (taken with my phone) are terrible. Even if I did have a camera, my brilliantly naughty kids would likely break it in a day. "Childproof" doesn't really protect against the bright, analytical, and focused minds of kids on the autism spectrum.

I have too many interests to mention. Some of the things I've enjoyed working with are: upcycled cashmere and other types of wool, other varied fabrics, polymer clay, acrylic and watercolor paint, beads, wire, LEDs and simple soldered circuits, exotic woods, embroidery floss, a sewing machine, a blowtorch, scissors, a lathe, shellac, various paper, sugar, crayons, and pencils. I think that should sum up the eclectic mix of things I have posted in my Etsy shop and might post in the future.
