A Treat And A Prize's Profile
Welcome to my Etsy shop, XOgen!
The shop name means "a kiss, a hug, from gen" (that's me!). And "A Treat And A Prize" comes from what I hope you'll find here!
I've been creating things, both awake and asleep, for (as Carl Sandburg would say in his black turtleneck shirt) "Billions and billions and billions of years". I'm pretty much a self-taught artist and crafter, learning sewing from my mom who was a seamstress. And one of my sons just graduated from the Fashion Institute of Technology. (Needed to do "a proud mom plug"-- sorry!)
In 3rd grade, I designed my first wraparound skirt and decided that I would be a famous fashion designer one day. Well, we're still working on that, only we've replaced "fashion designer" with "eclectic creator"…
