About

I've always loved making things. Baking, cooking, all the crafty little kits I received for Christmas as a kid. Loved those:) I discovered that I'm enthralled by the whole process of starting with a raw product and turning it into something special. My Mom was a baker/cake decorator, my grandmother was a seamstress. She sold her dolls and knitting from her front porch business. Must be in my blood lol. I started making handbags/purses a couple of years ago when invention became necessary. I had not touched a sewing machine since 4H club in grade school. And I have issues with owner manuals :) So I sat down and figured out how to do what I saw in my head. I had all these beautiful sample fabrics that cried out to be something other than scraps in the closet. Then I started taking trips to the fabric store and I was lost! In isle after isle of color and texture. Every item I create is like one of my children, I watch it grow into…

In isle after isle of color and texture. Every item I create is like one of my children, I watch it grow into being and then I pass it along to the life it was meant to have. I evolve a little everyday so just watch as I grow :) I like making costume themed items so just convo me to discuss your visions. My clothing line is all recycled goods. I look for the finest in "used" clothing, but there may be an occaisional "flaw" as it is gently used. I do find alot of brand new clothing still with tags, but for the most part it is gently used. Please know that I will always strive for the best! I make everything in my home which is free of the fumes of nasty habits, but filled with loving furriness :) Check out whats new and join me at Facebook under Its Me Designs.

A few have asked me "Why two names?"
I joined Etsy a while back when my craft was just a hobby. I used Thundersales then here and also on paypal. Then I started to get serious about this and came up with a name that suited my work. Every piece I create comes from a place inside and "Its Me" that comes out in my work. I also do custome work to suit your styleso my designs become your designs. You now have a custome piece that YOU designed :) So your item becomes you, or...........Its Me :) It was after getting business cards, a banner for shows, Facebook business page etc. that I came back to Etsy. Not to confuse everyone, but hoping everyone can find me. Simply put, Thundersales is doing business as......It's Me Designs :)
