About

I turned the lights on in my little Etsy shop in September of 2011, and my glow is getting brighter each day! I love how my Cre8ive Spirit has been energized by the eye candy here at Etsy...When I first set my eyes on Etsy I was like a kid in a candy shop! Etsy is like a total sugar rush high for my creativity!

Shopping (even if it is just window shopping) is therapy for me and before Etsy I would find myself frivoling away my precious moments and moolah on Wal-Mart drivel. My money would virtually vanish as I seemed squander it on impulse buys like lolli~pops & Kit~kats for my kids while I would oogle check out counter publications just for the eye candy... my mind and spirit needed so much more... I have come a long way since those early days...

Now both the consumer and the merchant in me are satisfied with the simplicity and simpatico I find here at Etsy…

Now both the consumer and the merchant in me are satisfied with the simplicity and simpatico I find here at Etsy. Burning gas to gain my goods is so 2011! Online shopping in my jammies and bunny slippers with a mug of hot coffee close at hand is a much better experience for me then fighting a crowd or driving around looking for a parking space...wastin' time. These days Etsy is where I get my haul, my loot, the bountiful booty of spoils to spice up my swag! Whether it be materials for my own projects or something I see that I just can not live without, Etsy is my "go to" one stop shop (well except for gas and groceries I would never have to shop anywhere else!!!). I send my LOVE and special blessings to all my fellow Etsy artisans, Thank you for working hard to provide me with the great tools & tutes, and unique supplies that make my business such a pleasure and certainly one day soon... a success.

I have been inspired by so many great shops, but especially Kat from Katwise. Her creativity is conagious in the most viral awesome way! Her creativity not only knocked me up visually a few notches, but her sweater coats....awww man, all I can say is, "Mmmmm, delicious... taste the rainbow!" Seeing them has made me tell my sewing skillls to take a G-I-A-N-T scissor~step forward~~~<3 Hahaha...If you have not seen her shop yet, check her out, and feel the love yo'! Visiting her site is like being kissed by the color fairy...love, love, love it!

In the past year I have had some major life changes, my marriage, my children, my job... everything changed. I just did a free fall and went with it, trusting the process of change and believing that my life belongs to GOD, and there is nothing that can happen to me that HE and I can not handle together.

God has truly blessed me & my family. HE knows how to clean things up, buff things out, and make them sparklie again! He is my true Cre8ive Spirit, my health food, my vine, and staying connected to Him through my daily prayer is what really keeps me growing... He is my source, my hook up, my breath, my life.

Sparks are flyin' here @ Cre8ive Spirit*~*~~~*~~*~~*~~* with all the knitting, sewing, stringing beads, bangin' metal and twisting wires these sparks are sure to turn into a major conflagration...a fi-yah that NEVER burns out!

I realize that spending my time doing what I love will enable my spirit to be at peace with myself and with others, which will echo throughout every corridor of my mind and effect my life and other's lives in so many positive ways.

I saw a quote on a marquis the other day that read "Speak kind words, hear kind echoes". I thought that out a lil' further..."T~H~I~N~K kind words, hear kind echoes." I have decided to take captive every thought, and surrender it to GOD asking Him, "...Is this o'kay...am I doin' allright?" Sometimes I am not on the right path, and I'll see that pretty clearly when I ask, that is when I just take a few steps in a different direction and do something new & creative.

I believe that my life's journey is like traveling on a circular path that is going forward and then backward, eventually and ultimately moving forward again. This journey is a cycle, and I have seen that cycle so many times I have learned the dance routine by heart! I came pre-packaged for success. (& so did you!) As long as we work hard, stay teachable, humble and respond in love I believe that we will continue to win at the game of life. I am in training for a win~win situation. Sometimes its a "do" thing, sometimes its just a "be" thing, but its always a love thang! (I tend to ramble ~~~ with a reason ~~~ & that reason is to share the love yo'!!!)

I sincerely want to thank Holy Spirit who truly is the Cre8iveSpirit within my heart & mind, He is my thought coach, my Truth.

I am adding more items to my shop weekly...so please come back often and check out what I am up to. I hope to spark your imagination...& I hope the sparks in my shop add to ~YOUR~ glow!

My Daddy often asks me, "Shawnie, does your train of thought have a caboose?" Well, yes, Dad... it does, but of course there's a little story behind everything and if you are interested... my journals about what inspires my art pieces are found on My Blog @

Come on over and be inspired. ....~~~~<3
