ChicadeePress' Profile

About

I am a young mom living in Boston, MA. I have always enjoyed crafting in my spare time (...it runs in my family!). I spent 7 years working in corporate finance before my sweet husband and I welcomed our daughter April -- our own littlest dove.

Now I enjoy introducing April to the world around her, and while she is napping, I make things out of felt. Between motherhood and crafting, my hands are hardly ever idle, and I like it that way.

I try to source my supplies from Etsy sellers whenever possible, and I love using materials that I find around the house.

I purchase materials from both of these stores almost on a weekly basis.

If you have a custom idea in mind and would like me to create it for you, just contact me -- I enjoy a challenge and will do my best to accomodate you!

Happy Etsying!

P.S. Why "ChicadeePress"? Short story: Etsy won't let me change it. Long story: I made this profile awhile ago, when I thought I would one day be selling letterpress creations on Etsy. It is still a goal of mine, but given our tight living quarters and unpredictable busy schedule, I have decided to put that goal on hold and craft instead. Stay tuned, though, and you may see some paper goods for sale here eventually!
