A little bit about me . . . Though I now live in Bloomsburg, PA, I was born and raised in Emmaus, raised both of my daughters in Center Valley, and have lived in the Lehigh Valley area of PA most of my life. I will always consider it "home". But, my husband and our dog are in Bloom . . . . so here I am.
As I'm sure is the case with many, I was introduced to crafting as a Girl Scout. I can still remember presenting my mother with the ugliest necklace to ever exist, having been created from a cork, a bunch of sequins, and a piece of ribbon. Then there was my never-ending hit parade of sad little popsicle stick bowls -- suitable only for holding more popsicle sticks to be used in making the next bowl. And, who can forget all those potholders I made using those hideous stretch jersey "rubberband" things. I finally stopped making those when my Dad had enough to re-shingle the roof.
Many years later, I began "crafting" again, having taught myself how to make my "pinecone ornaments" all of which were given away to family and friends (silly me). After moving to Bloomsburg, I began participating in craft shows with my daughters, selling a variety of crafts and several years later, I found Etsy.
I have recently retired from my "real job" giving me a lot more time to make "stuff". My daughters aren't able to accompany me to craft shows anymore as they are busy with their own families, jobs, and especially our 3 grandchildren, so my husband, Tony, has stepped in. I absolutely love having him along (he does all the loading and lugging containers in and out of venues) and he makes a gallant effort to help me set up my display. However, in addition to displaying things facing the wrong way or in several cases - upside down, he usually manages to destroy several items at every show. (He calls it "random inventory reduction".)
If you're still reading, you're either really bored or a glutton for punishment. Either way, I'm impressed! If your only alternative at the moment is to scrub the bathtub or shave the pills off your sofa, you might want to delay a bit, and check out my other Etsy shops:
"Touched by Twilight" which features handcrafted, affordable, and fun jewelry for men and women fashioned from chains, suede, chains, leather, beach stones, pewter, and chains. Just click below:
Did I mention chains?
"Confetti Already" offers unique and fun confetti (bet you hadn't guessed that), confetti-filled balloons, cupcake toppers, and more:
And, my newest shop: "SimpliSarcastic" featuring sarcastic mugs and t-shirts. (We say what you're thinking . . . ):

Frequently asked questions
When shipping to an EU country, is VAT included in your selling price?
No. We are not registered nor authorized to collect VAT. You will be responsible for any associated VAT and handling charges that are levied by your government or postal service with one exception: digital file purchases. Please also be aware that I cannot mark your shipment as a "gift" in an effort for you to avoid these fees. This is illegal and carries significant punishments and fines.
Can you include a message from me in the shipment?
Absolutely! If you are shipping directly to your gift recipient, first be sure to change the shipping address to their address. In the "notes to seller" area, let me know that this is a gift so I do not include any business cards, etc. This is also the place to include the text of your message to the recipient.
