About

Hi there! Thanks for checking in and getting to know us.
We've been here on Etsy since October 2009 and have enjoyed every moment. There are so many wonderful people we have met and new things we've bought from other artists here. We hope you have a great experience just as we have.
Who's we you must be wondering?
Well, I am Christy. I'm the artisan and the crafter. I make each piece by hand, and thoroughly inspect it when I'm done. It is said frequently that an artist loves each piece they make and it is true, if I don't love it I don't put it up for sale. If I make something and it isn't up to standards I remake it until my fingers hurt. Quality and Details are so important to me, because I know they are to you as well. I know all to well how exciting it is to get that package you've been expecting and open it to find something that's even better than it looked online. I want that for you…

Another part of "we" is my husband Ryan. This shop would not still be here if not for him. Not only does he quality check each item I make as well, he answers questions while I'm running errands, purchases supplies, runs to the post office, gets my supplies ready when I'm short on time or very busy, but watches our 3 children, reminds me to eat while offering a steaming plate of food, and is basically my rock. He encouraged me to keep going, because starting on Etsy is a slow build.
Our other "we" are those 3 children I mentioned above. Our eldest is 10, 8, and our youngest is 6. Our youngest two will sit and watch as I twist my wires this way or that way and ask to help, most packages have been prepped by them, putting the order in the envelop closing it, putting on the return label. They love it. Our eldest would much rather sit snuggled up next to me and read to me while I work.
It's a family affair, and we couldn't love it more.

When I'm not on here, or working at my new store Anja's Rock Shop. I'm caring and playing with my children or caring for my grandmother, swimming, baking, experimenting in the kitchen, tidying up the house and after our dog, 4 cats and 2 guinea pigs, or traveling with Ryan.
Our favorite places to visit are www.bullmanbeach.com and www.bluefinbay.com

Thanks for stopping in!

We also had a 2nd shop at www.etsy.com/shop/anjasrockshop
and a 3rd at www.etsy.com/shop/anjaswirecrochet which has now closed- all those pieces can be found here.
