About

I love seeing people smile when they get something handmade! Being creative & creating things is therapeutic for me & it helps others ~ Great Combo!

I have been crafting and selling my creations since I was about 6 years old. I started with friendship bracelets and simple beaded necklaces. My Mom is an artist and crafter, I grew up watching her create wonderful works of art and did projects with her often. I went with my mom to craft shows and artists showcases as she sold her work and sometimes I to got to sell mine. It was always lot's of fun.
So as I got older it was only natural that I would continue to be creative, make things and sell them. I've done several different things over the years...I had a gift basket business for a little while in high school and college. I also tied and sold fly fishing flies for a while.
Fast forward....a few years ago I decided I wanted to try my hand at crafting and selling my creations more regularly....you know make a business at it. So I opened a store here on ETSY. Since I traveled for work a couple of times a month sporadically, I thought it would be good extra income and relaxing when I was home.
I struggled for 9 months to get things off the ground, it was going ok. Then my husband and I had to move for his work, he got laid off and I had to close my store here for a while because I had to get a J.O.B.
Fast forward again...I have since started, run and closed my own business as a massage specialist, I spent the last 7 years growing and expanding it into a Vitality, Healing & Movement Center and getting certified in other things. I am now a certified Art of Feminine Presence Teacher and do private coaching with Women & Men. Some months are tight, it's not always easy owning your own business.
So in November 2015, I decided to get back to doing creative things, I had been missing it and I needed something to help me de-stress. While I was at it I thought why not try and earn some extra money for the holidays, so I opened my shop up again. A few months later my father's health started going downhill, we have since moved him in to live with us so we can help him.
I spent 2016 getting my father settled in, trying to grow my business and stay above water. I spent most of last year (2017) taking care of family issues, getting my dad help and keeping my business going.
I have decided that 2018 is going to be an awesome year! I making changes and taking steps to grow my coaching business and have decided to dive into the world of social media marketing by offering Social Media Assistant packages specifically for shop owners.
One of my commitments is to do more crafting and creation this year since it's so therapeutic for me. I am going to focus more on growing my shop to help bring in extra income to make ends meet and pay off debt.
I hope you will support me in this effort by sharing, commenting and liking items. And if you really like something treating yourself to it. ☺
I hope you enjoy my creations and if there is something you would like but don't see it send me a note and I'll see if I can make it for you.
Thanks in advance for your support!

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

*Custom Orders are available, please contact me with your request. If you see something in my shop that you like but would like it in a different color please indicate which item and the color you would like it in. I will do my best to accommodate all requests.
*Please allow 1-4 weeks for most custom orders.
*Once the order is finished it will be listed with a special title just for you. You will then be contacted with the listing information.
If I do not hear back from you or the item is not purchased within 3 days of the listing date the item will be up for purchase to anyone.
* All custom orders with a personalized name/word/saying on them or special material used must be paid for in advance.

Care instructions

For all crocheted items I recommend:
* Machine wash on gentle/hand wash cycle with similar colors, tumble dry on low or lay flat to dry.
* I recommend washing all items in a lingerie/delicates bag so other items in the wash don't get caught on the yarn.

You can have a lingerie/delicate bag added to your order for only $1.50. Please make sure to indicate that you would like one in the "notes to seller" during check out. I will then send you a revised invoice for the correct amount.

Gift wrapping and packaging

Gift wrapping and shipping is available for most items.
Please see the listing description for details and pricing.
Pricing varies depending on the item.

When requesting gift wrapping please allow an additional 1-2 days for shipping.

Wholesale availability

I would love to provide you with some of my items for use with other items or for resale in another location.
Send me a convo letting me know what you are looking for or the exact item already in my shop (don't forget to check out my sold items for things that may not be currently listed). I will need to know how many you would like and any color or size preferences.
I will then work with you to come up with a price that works good for both of us.
All orders are always open to negotiations, hopefully we can come up with what works best for both.
Please do not purchase my items to resell here on etsy, unless we have made special arrangements for the items to be used along with some of your own items.
