The Star Box is named after an actual box that has been in my family for many years. When I was a child my mother drew a large star on the lid of a plain square cardboard box with a black marker. Over the years The Star Box was home to many varied things such as buttons, paperclips, batteries, thread, old photos, and whatever else needed a temporary storage until it could be of use to someone.

I have always enjoyed papercrafts and altered art and that was the inspiration for creating my own hand carved rubber stamps. I also knit and spin and so I have developed a love of natural fibers and am branching out into hand dyeing my own fiber, hand making felt sheets, spinning embroidery threads of wool, silk, linen, and cotton. I am always on the look out for new materials and new ideas. I have opened 2 new Etsy shoppes at www.michiganspinning.etsy.com where I sell handspun yarns, fibers, and carded batts, and also www.sewsimplyvintage.etsy.com where I will not only sell sewn items with a vintage flair but also vintage glass items, hand embroidered linens, and various vintage trinkets and treasures.
