Have an idea? Let me know! I love custom orders. It is the greatest way for me to expand my offerings.

I love looking at interesting shops, discovering new ways to promote my shop, and connecting with local Etsy sellers and purchasers.

If you enjoy my items or just want to know a little more about me, please consider finding me on Facebook and becoming a fan.
