There is a new name for my growing shop :) Too Cute custom crafts has changed it's name to Izy and Oly. I have just expanded the business to include Home Decor... and along with that is a new name to tie it all together.

To visit my shop ---------->

I love to create, craft, make, stitch, tape, glue, put, list, organize... DO! I always have. I remember paper dolls and mud pies, Barbie Townhouse and back yard forts, big imagination and lots of stuff! Now it is napkins, placemats, quilts and fabric - fabric - fabric. So much has changed for me, but I still like to make and play :)

I earned my art degree in Ceramics and Sculpture and had hoped to one day teach, but took a funny turn somewhere and ended up in the Tech world for a bunch of years in my early…

I earned my art degree in Ceramics and Sculpture and had hoped to one day teach, but took a funny turn somewhere and ended up in the Tech world for a bunch of years in my early career. When my kids came into my life (I now have 3), the ability to hide away in my clay studio became next to impossible. So... I learned (really finally learned) how to sew. It was so wonderful to be making things again, even a new 'thing' for me. Quilting came first, and is still an ever evolving process for me (I have such grande quilt plans in my head I can't wait to get made some day!). Learning to make other things has been a new creative expression for me. Selecting fabrics that work together is the most fun, and honestly the hardest part!

I am so happy to still be at home with my littlest one needing me here. But to now have this shop... I have a new career path that is ever evolving and so incredibly exciting to be on. I love everything about Etsy and am so happy to be a part of this family.

I hope the things in my shop - catch your eye, make you smile, and you can't help yourself to look again and again.
