About

Hi, welcome to my shop! My name is Jessie and am a stay at home mother to 5 children. I love being a mother and I love children which is why I stray towards creating things for children, although you will find things for adults in my shop as well!

In my home I would much rather use handmade than store bought commercial items. Which is why most of my days are spent "creating". I was born to make stuff. I started at about 5 years old by tying twigs and pinecones together with pretty ribbons and selling to my neighbors to earn enough money to go down to the candy store! lol
Then I began making a mess with paint and drawing....earning the title "Messy Jessy" from loved ones.
My teachers and family friends would be blown away by pictures that such a young girl was painting and in time, my teachers would begin entering my paintings in art shows and they…

My teachers and family friends would be blown away by pictures that such a young girl was painting and in time, my teachers would begin entering my paintings in art shows and they would come back with blue ribbons! One day in high school art class, I was immersed in a painting, and my teacher came up to me with one of my paintings with a blue ribbon hanging from it. She managed to tear my attention away from what I was doing and I exclaimed.."oh, i was wondering where that painting went to...it's promised to someone!" My teacher looked at me and said, "Jessie, you are the most oblivious, and the most messiest artist I've ever known." I, of course, would be oblivious to it all, because I just loved to create, and didn't think that I was any better at it than anyone else was! And yes, I know I am messy!!

So once I became a mother, I hated the idea of letting a daycare center raise my children. So I decided to try and use my so-called talent to earn a little extra income so that I could stay home and raise them! Then my obsessions drifted to crochet. I am self-taught, and once I picked up a crochet hook the first time, I just couldn't put it down!

I make a little bit of everything, so you will always find a bit of this and that mixed in my shop. I make goatsmilk soaps and lotions for my family to use because they are so much better than store bought, so every once in a while I may throw some bath and body things in my shop as well. I love to paint pictures for childrens rooms and crochet baby hats and granny square blankets. I love to do custom orders if you need something in particular...just convo me!
