About

I am 23 years old until March 18th 2009(lol) then I will be 24...

I live with my wonderful husband who paints, with watercolors mostly in chinese brush style. He also scrapbooks and knitts with me when we fancy. I also live with the two most adoreable dogs in the world. Athena(named after the Greeek Goddess because she bit us like no other when she was a puppy and puppies have THE SHARPEST TEETH) is my half shitzu/half chihaua who only weighs 6 pounds. She looks bigger because of her shitzu hair but- get her in a bath and she is magically turned into a drowned rat! Barbosa is my mini chocolate dachshund who is really small even for a mini- he is like a mini mini! He only weighs about 8.5 pounds but if someone were to ever attack me, my one true defense is that he would protect me by licking their face off. Lol. Inspite of both of them being full grown- I call them puppies…

Inspite of both of them being full grown- I call them puppies. I call horses- ponies and full grown cats-kittens. All in all, I love all things of cuteness and I think that's why I change names of things around me like that.

I grew up in a family with an abusive mother and a gentle yet stern father. When he wasn't home, I kept to myself to be able to keep busy and stay out of my mother's way. Being intrigued by Highlights magazines for kids, I would often try all sorts of things out of the craft pages to incredible success for a child my age. I did come from a very creative family and so I have always thought that it was just instilled in me at an early age. When I got into elementary school, I was known to make and sell my crafts. I guess you could say that I was an adolescent entrepeneur. I started by making stickers from a sticker machine that my parents had purchased for me for christmas one year. Then when Pogs were popular, I started making my own and selling those. In middle school I began making seedbead hippie flowered necklaces and sold those. I remember always having extra cash at 12 years old which at that age, was rare at my school. Needless to say, I had a lot of friends because I gave discounts to friends then. My fascination of crafting led me to buying many jewelry magazines and books to further discover technique. I loved making jewelry but soon found that it is a hard business to make work in the crafting world mainly for the reason that it is one of the most popular crafts and the market for it is overwhelmed by sellers. So, when I recieved an antique (circa 1906-1910) heirloom singer treadle sewing machine I began to learn about sewing. Since then, I have been on a journey while designing and making my own kawaii hats and plushies.

Just wanted to let everyone know that I am having an awesome giveaway soon!

~~~*PROMTIONAL GIVEAWAY*~~~
I have 6 sales right now and am looking to take plenty more! So, in anticipation, I am doing a little promotional giveaway. I want to reach 100 sales by March. It may be reaching for the stars but atleast it is a goal!

Free gift to:
25th sale- atleast a $5 value
50th sale- atleast a $5 value
100th sale- atleast a $10 value

All customers between now and the 100th sale, will all go into a drawing for each item they purchase. The drawing will be for a free hat out of my shop of a $30 value or less.

http://www.whimsywingsandthings.etsy.com

Rules:
1) If more than one item is purchased in any sale, it is considered as only one sale and will qualify towards the free gifts only if it is the 25th, 50th, or 100th sale.
2) Each item bought within a sale, contributes one entry into the drawing for a free hat. (i.e. if you buy three items within one sale, you get three entries into the drawing)
3) The drawing will not be held until the 100th sale has been reached (so promote this thread and bump it a lot so that if you buy, you can get to the drawing even more quickly!)
4) There is no price limitation on your item purchases, meaning that you can buy a $4.00 item or a $40.00 item and still get entered into the drawing.
