About

I grew up in a fairly crafty household with a mother who taught art and a sister who graduated as a graphic designer & illustrator. Could never quite decide what I wanted to do in life as I do get bored quite easily.

One day my sis decided to open a craft shop which I have been a part of, off and on since 2003. Left the family business to pursue my own path which led me to my love of theater where I started as a box office salesperson and got promoted to being a publicist.

However, before I could carve a path with my new found skills, I find myself pulled back into the family business of craft. The love of making things was still there. However there was nothing that I liked about running the business itself since being in management meant no time to create or experiment. That was in 2008.

It has been many years since. I now have a beautiful family of my own. Learnt, grown and matured through it all. I have since taken over the ground operations of the craft store, and since I am 100% management, this shop my friends, will be my outlet for creativity.

I am really excited to begin on this path of mine, and I thank all of you in advance for the support <3
