Hello there!

My name is Athena, and I’m so pleased you’ve stopped by. I make cake toppers, hand-embroidered hoops, whimsical illustrations and cards for my shop Athena and Eugenia. Joining me in my creative adventures is my amazing mom, Eugenia. She assists me with delivering orders to the post office when I’m at my day job, and can always be counted on to add that one last flag to the cake topper I’ve been trying to get just right. My sister Amalia also joins in the fun with ideas for illustrations and card designs. We always have a blast working together!

My wish is that each item I create conveys a sense of happiness and individuality, and I love that my work here on Etsy allows me to explore the world through my imagination every day. I put a lot of thought into my color choices to fit a certain theme or inspiration, whether it’s fairy tales, nature, or even faraway travels. Custom orders and helping my customers turn their ideas into real life are my absolute favorite. I like to think that I’m like the sister or friend who’s just as excited about what I’m creating for you as you are!

10 things you should know about me:
1. I was born in sunny South Africa.
2. You could definitely call me an Anglophile.
3. I love theme parties, and I love bringing people together to have a good time.
4. I have a degree in biology. The natural world fascinates me.
5. My current favorite color is orange.
6. I like mint ice cream in the summertime, and also any time.
7. I live by the beach in Atlantic City, New Jersey.
8. I’m a crafter not a fighter.
9. I like flowers. Lots of flowers.
10. I’m a perfectionist, but I really appreciate the imperfections that show something was made by hand.

Additional policies and FAQs
Do you offer custom orders?
Yes, we love custom orders! Please let us know how we can make something special for you.

The wooden dowels are not included with my cake topper. Where can I find them?
The wooden dowels used in the photos are actually 12-inch bamboo skewers, which can be found at most supermarkets, usually in the baking aisle. You can also purchase long lollipop sticks in the candy-making section of your local craft store, or use colored or paper straws.
