Video summary: How my Beach Ruffles Etsy Shop started

I love weddings, beachy things and cats!

I'm a maker, collector, animal lover and generally artsy person. Both of my grandmother's were crafters so being a maker is in my DNA!!! In my esty shop, you will find handcrafted items made from wood or fiber, including face masks, that are great for gift giving

I have a long, on going career as a bridal makeup artist, esthetician and nail technician which has created my love of wedding things! Weddings are full of such exciting positive energy. I love to be part of it. Not only have I beautified brides, I have made many fake flower bouquets, boutonnieres and centerpieces for weddings and sewn veils.

I was introduced to sewing way back in high school by Mrs. Wood who taught Home Ec. My projects didn't always come out the greatest, but I was inspired to keep sewing and creating outfits to express my personal style. Luckily, my sewing skills improved! I've sewn a variety of items (besides clothes for me!) over the years including baby and kids clothes, aprons, bridal veils, small handbags, makeup bags, face masks, pillows, window treatments and chair cushions.

I love the beach and beachy things. I always have. The beach is a place to rest, refresh and be inspired. I have made many ruffled beach sarongs and pretty coverups for my Jamaica vacations made with colorful and sheer fabrics.

Cats are near and dear to my heart. I care for, rescue, and find homes for feral and stray cats. Kitties need to be loved and spoiled and kept safe so I do what I can to help them. Any purchase you make from my shop helps support the care of animals in need.

My husband and I recently started wood crafting personalized beer caddies, wine caddies, small bridesmaid gift caddies and decorative wooden creations. Who knew wood would become one of the mediums I'd be working with!

I developed my love of ceramics in Mrs. Blinder's high school art class. It's so rewarding to take a lump of clay and make something wonderful out of it. I really need to get back to pottery making. You may see some of my work here one day!

The collector in me finds old things that fascinating. I like to think about who may have owned them and what it was like in the time period the things were made. I love old houses, vintage dishes, glassware, pottery and jewelry. You can find me at flea markets hunting for vintage pottery from makers including McCoy, Hull and Roseville along with hunting for vintage jewelry and other interesting old things.

Sometimes, I know who owned the old things and they are very special to me. My grandmothers' King's Crown glassware and Fostoria glassware make my holiday table sparkle. Those beautiful vintage things bring back fond childhood memories of dinners at both of my grandmother's houses.

Together, all of these loves have inspired my continually evolving Beach Ruffle Etsy shop.
