About

Hi, I'm so glad you found me in the midst of all the talent that goes on at Etsy. I hope you enjoy browsing through my 300 plus seaside inspired coastal creations.

I grew up in Georgia where I owned a gift shop on the court square (next door to my father's barber shop) for 20 years. Having a childhood in a small town atmosphere was incredible. It was so natural for me to open a gift shop when I graduated. Married, didn't last so I threw all my energy into working my shop and raising my daughter alongside me. I think her first sentence was ...y'all come back to see us. It was all too perfect.

When the malls started moving into our small town it was time to figure out how my shop would survive soooooooooo I started making everything I could figure out how to make and personalizing everything one way or another. You wouldn't believe…

When the malls started moving into our small town it was time to figure out how my shop would survive soooooooooo I started making everything I could figure out how to make and personalizing everything one way or another. You wouldn't believe what some customers would ask for. But I got it done complete with over the top wrapping at that time. I tried to make every customer family and I think 95% of them felt that way. Every vacation I can remember in my life other than a couple of mountain trips was to the beach. It's no wonder I ended up living by the sea. After loosing both parents I closed my shop and moved to Florida. I've lived at this most beautiful stretch of shore now for over 12 years and receive beautiful gifts from nature every day. I am truly blessed.

Someone once said to me you create your own reality. It's true! Make your life a happy one, seize the moment and follow your dreams.
