About

I discovered Etsy back in 2005 and I’m thrilled to be here now as the owner and creator of my own shop.

I absolutely love creating things! I grew up digging through my mom’s craft closet, seeing what was there, and making something out of it. Imagine popsicle stick and hot glue log cabins, tiny painted picture frames, little critters with pompoms and googly eyes. I couldn’t get enough. My version of a kid in a candy store was making a special trip to Joanne’s and wandering through isles of colorful yarn and shiny beads.

Once I get an idea in my head to make something, I can’t let go, I have to follow through and see how it turns out. I’ll be the first to admit, my projects don’t all turn out very well. I can’t sew a garment that actually fits me to save my life and I have a knack for burning soup. Yes, soup can burn! But I love working with my hands. I feel just as comfortable roasting a chicken as I do working a rotary saw. And sometimes, after a lot of planning, a lot of focus, and some really good luck, something I make surprises me and comes out even better than I had hoped. My first painted bottle was one of these special moments.

All of the glass I use has been saved from local landfills in Austin, Texas. Everything I make, in my shop and in my personal life, is special to me and I love sharing the experience and results with people around me.
