Susan Platt's Profile

About

Growing up in a hot, sunny climate, my mother and I were surrounded by colour, patterns, beadwork, woodwork and a lot of dramatic beauty in nature and tribal art. Etsy is the perfect platform for the realization of a dream of owning our own gift boutique and using a wide range of creativity in different mediums like apparel, jewelry, knitting, finding vintage items and creating paper goods.

Owning our own cutter and heat press equipment has been a fantastic learning curve for creating our own original vinyl designs for our t-shirts , totes and aprons. It's great to see our ideas out there and having this new aspect to our store!

I travel a fair amount, so sourcing items, materials and supplies and finding vintage treasures all over the world and then photographing and describing them for customers, is a very satisfying process for me…

Our store is slowly evolving and we are moving away from paper favours and transitioning more into original design apparel, vintage finds and jewelry.

I've enjoyed taking courses on jewelry making and I aspire to create pieces that are functional, one-of-a-kind and unforgettable. I like using a wide range of mediums ie paints, paper, textures, collages and layering. Experimenting and doing what I enjoy is key when I create any kind of art.

I've been drawing, sketching and painting since I was very young (particularly birds and wildlife) and have always enjoyed making cards and creating artistic objects from recycled bits and pieces around the home.

My mom Jean has been knitting, crocheting and creating beautiful items for over 60 years and has created countless items for both young and old to enjoy. Her unusual knitting and crocheting techniques create cozy items that are comfortable and delightful in colour, texture and pattern. She enjoys creating hybrids of patterns and has her own unique way of coming up with one-of-a kind ideas.

Reading, designing websites , sketching, creating unique jewelry pieces and accessories, traveling, cooking, working out, dancing, singing, long walks, cozy cafes and spending time with family and friends are also hobbies of mine.

I hope you enjoy our items as much as we love making them and finding them! Thanks for stopping by our gift boutique!
