On The Move
I was born in South Africa, am a British citizen and live in the United States. My home in the States is in Charlotte, North Carolina, but I am seldom there. My name should probably have been Wanderlust. My husband does contract work and we have chosen to stay together as a family. So we get to move. A lot.
I opened my first Etsy shop in 2008 while living in Denver, Colorado. Since then I have crafted, sold and shipped goodies from Frisco, Texas (2008-2009) Jacksonville Beach, Florida (2009) Charlotte, North Carolina (2010, 2011) Montreal, Canada (2010), twice more from Denver (2010-2011 and 2012-2013) and now from Weston, Florida (2013-2014).
My shop was born out of the need to be creative and contribute something more than just being a Hausfrau, while living a lifestyle that requires a move at least once a year - frequently more often - which makes traditional employment rather tricky.
Currently my work space is a tiny corner of a tiny rental condo in Weston, Florida. I believe my reward for living through the summer in South Florida is staying long enough to experience the winter here.
I love flowers, felt and embroidery and combine these elements most often in the items I create. My personal style is rather simple and uncluttered - I love the Scandinavian look of lots of old wood, sometimes painted white, chunky vintage utensils and splashes of color in floral prints and fresh flowers. I enjoy listening to audiobooks while I work. It is like having someone read to you who never gets tired. It helps me to stay focused on a project and get it done.
My dream for the future would be to live in an old house on a quiet beach surrounded by comfortable and cozy things, including my husband and daughter, making a living by crafting, painting and writing...
If I am not crafting, reading, swimming, or checking my shop, e-mail or Facebook, I am probably packing for the next move.
Around the web
Owner, Maker, Designer
I studied Graphic Design and have a degree in Business Information Systems, but apart from reading, love creating pretty things most of all.
Production Time: My current production time is 1 to 2 business days. Custom orders may take a little longer and depend largely on how quickly you are able to communicate your choices, respond to queries and approve designs and colors.
Custom Orders: When making a custom order I will communicate with you via a series of messages with photos to ensure that you are included in the process, can make any changes as required and know what the end result will look like before it is shipped.
Communication: The best way to contact me is via Etsy message. I check my shop several times every day and should be able to answer any queries within a few hours. If I am away from my store for any significant amount of time I'll post an update in my Shop Announcement.
