Tawny's Profile

About

Hello! My name is Tawny and I own and operate the Owlyouneediscrafts Etsy shop! I am a one woman show and everything in my shop is 100% handmade! No outsourcing here! I currently live in Aichtal, Germany with my wonderful husband, Teague and two fur children Hazel and Farrah (both cats). My husband is a US Navy Deep Sea Diver. I am a US Navy veteran. I served for six years and I worked in logistics. I now work at a wonderful Arts and Crafts center located here in Germany on the local US Army base. I love my job and everyone I work with! I absolutely love all kinds of Arts and Crafts! I love up cycling and giving unique handmade gifts! I enjoy simple swing projects but I have tried my hand at quilting. I enjoy most needle arts but i still has not learned how to knit. I know a lot of people think they are one in the same but to me they are two different animals. I recently started candle making and I am really enjoying it!…

We will be moving back to America next year where my ETSY shop and home business can truly blossom! I also have a blog by the same name owlyouneediscrafts.com. I hope you have a wonderful day! I hope you had fun learning about me!

My shops process:
Everything you see in my shop is 100% handmade by me! I have purchased several original patterns by other Etsy sellers and have been given permission to sell the finished product in my Etsy shop and craft shows.

When I get an order I try to start working n the item right away. Because of the time difference I usually wake up to the notification that I have received a new order. I work on my orders at my house so there is usually a lot of other things to do while I am working on the item. Whether it is stoping to change the laundry or feeding the cats because they are starting to attack my yarn to get my attention, I am always doing something else while trying to finish my order! I rarely get to just sit for hours on end and work on my items but I wouldn't have it any other way!

Once the item is completed, due to allergies, I wash, dry, and seal the item in ziplock bag. Then I get everything ready to ship out! I always include a thank you note, washing/drying instructions, and a small gift with the order. Working with the German Post office so interesting but I am getting use to it! Once I ship the item it's just the waiting game! Well that is about it. Not too long of a process!

Well, thanks for reading about me and my shop! Have an awesome day!
