A little about the shop. This business began as a fun little crafting hobby for my oldest son and I a few years back. He has Asperger's Syndrome--high-functioning Autism--and he wasn't into the rough and tough play that most little boys savor. He gravitated towards quieter activities like reading or playing independent computer or video games.

One day I got the unforgiving urge to make a necklace, so I purchased the materials and brought them home. My son…

A little about the shop. This business began as a fun little crafting hobby for my oldest son and I a few years back. He has Asperger's Syndrome--high-functioning Autism--and he wasn't into the rough and tough play that most little boys savor. He gravitated towards quieter activities like reading or playing independent computer or video games.

One day I got the unforgiving urge to make a necklace, so I purchased the materials and brought them home. My son showed immediate interest so I called him over and we both went to work creating two necklaces, the first, which isn't featured in my shop as it has become a keepsake for me, and the second is my Green Meadow Cameo necklace.

We started making all sorts of jewelry after that, and while, sadly, his interest in making jewelry no longer exists--it lasted a few years and now, at 12 years old it's just not "cool" anymore--mine is on fire and I've turned those flames into a business here on Etsy. Calisty is the merging of our two names: Caleb and Christy :).

I was blessed with my second bundle of baby boy joy in March and absolutely cannot stop staring at him in all of his perfection <3

A little about me. I've been known to quote famous movie lines at random, stare at the sky for hours, and complete my ATM transactions in Spanish although I'm only fluent in English. On my last birthday, I wished on my candles (29 of them, again) that the delicious Etsy community was a neighborhood where I could physically live. I am a pathological Googler and a coupon whore. I have a strong desire to become a Gilmore Girl and a strange tendency to sit in my car with a hair dryer pointing out of the window just to see how many people slow down. Since seeing the film Ghost, I have always wanted to dabble in pottery, of course the appeal could really be that I just want to play in clay with Patrick Swayze, God rest his beautiful soul. I struggle with the impulse to dance through a store instead of walk and out of sheer instinct I will break out into the Carlton dance whenever Tom Jones' "It's Not Unusual" comes across the airwaves, no matter where I am. I hope it never becomes a church hymn, though I'm not above dancing with a pulpit.

More simply put, I love to live.
