So began my lifetime love for crafts, gifting and my eternal adoration for plush.

As an adult I rediscovered my love for crafting during a long series of handmade gift giving, the culmination of my efforts producing the Mini Car for my first Christmas with my boyfriend, Alex. I wanted to make something incredibly cool, special and unique to show my love for him so I modeled the car after his beloved 1971 Mini Cooper. For the guy who has everything (just like my brother and most men I know) the personalized Mini Car was the perfect answer. merrily yours caters to those with the more difficult giftees, those who want to find personal and unique gifts and those who just want to have fun.
