Hello! My name is Saija Salminiitty (well, for now!) but here on etsy I am known by "Shadow Empress". Art and crafts have been hobbies of mine since childhood, and that passion has evolved with me through the years to where I am today! I love what I do, and I work darn hard at it. Some of my favorite hobbies include creating new products and art, but I get out of the house too; reading books and magazines, watching movies, going on exploratory visits of different cities, getting outdoors, wandering through art galleries, and going on vintage hunts are just a few of the many things I love to do in life.
I come from a diverse background; my mother is from here in California, while my dad (or "Isi") is from Finland. Due to my dad's work, I ended up growing up all over the globe. In addition to West Coast California and Finland, I have grown up in Tanzania, Japan, and the D.C...
