Hello Everyone!

The love I feel for “handmade” must have been woven into my fabric from when I was a child. When I was younger, living in Puerto Rico, I didn't have elaborate toys or was part of any sports, or clubs, so I had to become pretty creative to entertain myself. Nothing wrong with that. I used to create different things with anything I could find. I would create random cards, boxes, dioramas from things you could find around the house (thank you Abuelita!!). Anytime it was someone’s birthday, or just because, I would seek basic paper, glue, leaves, dried flowers, plastics canvas or old magazines and create something personalized for that special person.

Hello Everyone!

The love I feel for “handmade” must have been woven into my fabric from when I was a child. When I was younger, living in Puerto Rico, I didn't have elaborate toys or was part of any sports, or clubs, so I had to become pretty creative to entertain myself. Nothing wrong with that. I used to create different things with anything I could find. I would create random cards, boxes, dioramas from things you could find around the house (thank you Abuelita!!). Anytime it was someone’s birthday, or just because, I would seek basic paper, glue, leaves, dried flowers, plastics canvas or old magazines and create something personalized for that special person.

Somewhere along the way of being a child and pursuing my goals, my creative side was put on hold. However, I quickly realized that I needed that outlet as the life of a grad student, lab tech, wife, and mother of a beautiful energetic daughter needed a retrieve. Thus, I started making simple things here and there for friends and family, and eventually started posting "stuff" on Etsy after the encouragement I was receiving. So long story short, this is where the name of my Etsy shop came about.

In these past few years, after finishing my Master’s degree in [Experimental Psychology/Behavioral Neuroscience], and moving across the nation, while transitioning into the "real world", starting a PhD program, and taking a long term break from it to focus more on my daughter and family, and now working as a Clinical Research Coordinator, I have decided to work on my creativity and let new ideas flow. Therefore, letting this creativity transition from a hobby to a small local business that can serve any one in need of one of a kind everyday wear accessories and paper goods. If you have any questions, need additional information, or want something personalized, just contact me and I can craft something special for you. 
 I would love to help out in any way I can.

Have a lovely day! (Que tengas un bonito dia!)

Thanks,

Marianne <3
