Sonya's Profile

About

Welcome To My Shop. My name is Sonya. I am the Mother of 3 beautiful girls who have kept me busy for the last 17 years. But now they are geting older it's now time for me to start preparing for the empty nest and start on the next chapter in my life.

I am married to the most wonderful man that has been my strong arm. When I am scared and feeling doubtful about myself, He is always there to inspire me and fill me with hope again. He always supports me in everything I want to try. Our life is filled with a lot of laughter. ( He thinks he's a wise guy.) If you know what I mean?

My Husband and I use to go to storage auctions ( like the ones you see on T.V. now) and purchase the units that we liked the most (and some we didn't) and would resale our winings online and at the Flea Market. But the best part was my flea market…

Welcome To My Shop. My name is Sonya. I am the Mother of 3 beautiful girls who have kept me busy for the last 17 years. But now they are geting older it's now time for me to start preparing for the empty nest and start on the next chapter in my life.

My Husband and I use to go to storage auctions ( like the ones you see on T.V. now) and purchase the units that we liked the most (and some we didn't) and would resale our winings online and at the Flea Market. But the best part was my flea market.

Getting ready for the big weekend sale was so exciting. People coming to see what goodies you had for them.. My shop looked differnt every time they came. So it was exciting for them also. I enjoyed the flea Market, but other opportunities came along and we decided to give them a try.

After trying other opportunities, I realized that I still had to find some way of getting back to creating again. It would hurt to see something that someone had casted away as junk and not be able to turn it into what I was envisioning it could be. So that's when I began to search places where I could express myself and my share my creations. That's when I stumbled upon Etsy.

My objective when creating something or looking for vintage items, is to first find a purpose for it, Can it be worn? Can it be drawn upon? Can it be used as a prop? Is it supplies that other crafters could use?And If I am going to create with it, make sure that its beauty and finish are well pleasing to the customer.

I have always had a deep passion for taken something old, used, damaged, and repurposing it for a new life. I love embellishments and fabric. I love to take something that was boring and make into something pretty and fuctional. My Lord is my inspiration. He is a Master at taking unwanted,broken, things and turning them into Master Pieces

Hope you enjoy looking around and exploring my shop If you have any questions please feel free to contact me anytime and I will respond ASAP. Be blessed remember to follow your passions with all your heart. Your gifts and talents are yours for a reason. Sincerely
Sonya
