About

Crafting to help babies, push research forward, and help cope with anxiety.

I started crafting as a girl. I don't remember exactly when. It just happened. I've always been very visual and creative-minded. And completing crafts gives me a sense of pride when it turns out amazing.
Elephant in this shop represents our first baby. We lost him/her to miscarriage a few months after we were married. I was devastated and it was something it took me around a year to come back from, emotionally. In that time I started doing more projects and it, along with good counseling, helped me to heal.
Bear represents our second baby. Two and a half years after our miscarriage we were, finally, expecting again. We'd had those years of unexplained infertility and it, too, had taken it's toll. At our 20 week scan we received bad news - Bear had failed to develop kidneys and would like die within a few hours of life. Thankfully we were able to get some experimental treatment, far from home, and sweet Bear lived for six months. During this time I kept myself calm by making things for Bear but still ended up with anxiety, depression, and PTSD.
Fox represents our third baby. He isn't born quite yet but we're in the home stretch and he is looking completely healthy. Crafting, while pregnant with him, has become my best coping mechanism. I have to keep my hands and my mind busy or my anxiety creeps back up on me.
Supporting my shop means you're supporting not only the way I cope but also babies with Bear's condition (Potter's Sequence) and premature birth. Every month, 5% of my sales will be donated to Cincinnati Children's Hospital who is one of the few hospitals still researching a way to treat and save Potter's babies. And every August, in honor of Bear's birthday, I will use 100% of my sales to purchase items for care packages to be given to babies and their families fighting in the NICU at Texas Children's Hospital to hopefully bring them a little bit of light in the midst of a very hard journey.
Thank you for all your support and even just for reading the story behind this little shop. I hope you have a great time looking around and find something that can brighten your life just a little more.

    I'm the mama to three beautiful babies for whom this shop is named, Jack, Judah, and Arthur. I also suffer from anxiety, depression and PTSD and making these beautiful, unique items for you helps me to cope with it.
