You never know WHAT you might find in an old shoebox!

Hi there!

A little bit about me and my shop......
Ever since I can remember, I have always enjoyed making and creating things whether it be drawing and sketching or making something out of found objects. My first real job allowed me the luxury of taking pottery classes and my interests and skills have grown since then. The name 'Shoebox Dreams' originates from the practice I had way back, when I stored my jewelry and other creations in old shoeboxes....hence the name of my shop and the tagline 'you never know 'what' you might find in an old shoebox!'. In the beginning I found I created so many artifacts that I used to give my creations to family and friends as gifts. Today, I am lucky enough to have a small circle of supportive local clientele and with their encouragement I thought I'd try to promote my wares through Etsy. When I first began creating I would work wherever I could carve out space in my home but nowadays I make and create in a recently converted double garage which serves as my studio space (photos will be posted at some point). Since then, I have also expanded my interests and skills to include photography, handcrafting cards of flora I grow in our yard, working with metal, glass, and mixed media, and searching for vintage treasures to share with those who show a similar interest in discovering the secrets and stories that old artifacts tell. In visits to my shop you may find that odd vintage treasure from time to time as a result of it revealing itself to me in my travels. I hope you enjoyed my little story and that you find a little something that speaks to you in my shop. Cheers!!!!!!!!
