About

I love to work with my hands.

I started my shop to help pay for my addiction to paper and fabric. Possibly to supplement my retirement income in 10 years. My first goal has been successful. Even if I meet my second goal I still have a incentive to keep doing what I love. As a side benefit I have met some of the most wonderful Etsians, Buyers and Sellers alike.

I have been crafting since I tried to make doll clothes for my naked troll dolls when I was around 6-7. Of course I did crafts in preschool but I really remember thinking they must be cold, so I cut a piece of pink felt in a rectangle and stitched a couple of strips to go over her shoulders and added a snap to make a wool jumper. (Here in the states a jumper is not a sweater). After that I learned to sew by helping a friend piece together a quilt using 5" squares. I used a sewing machine and everything! I was hooked. I did all kinds of stuff after that. I took a classes in sewing every chance I got and for club I took the crafting classes. When younger and poorer my little family had many a homemade Christmas.
I made a darling baby doll out of pink cotton socks and bunny slippers and taught myself how to crochet and made farm animals and of course ties and shirts. That was when fabric cost less per yard than an whole shirt.

I truly believe we have a great community of artisans and patrons who give validity to someone like me who isn't considered an artist because I haven't been formally trained. I have to Create it is an innate part of me and Etsy is my gallery. Thanks to all of you!

    I love to work with my hands. Etsy is a great outlet for me. I get to create things that I can sell and share with others. It gives me satisfaction as an artist.

Welcome to Highland Inspirations! I am excited to be starting this Etsy Shop. I can't wait to get things listed to see how Inspiring I can be to others. I have a broad range of handcrafted items, supplies and vintage finds I am happy to make available to you. I make cards, scrapbooks, paper and fabric embellishments for the DIY scapbook artist and card maker. I sew and quilt, so check my shop for aprons, dolls, and children's clothing and costumes. You never know what you may find. I hope we have a long and mutually rewarding relationship. I will take some special requests. I am not a full time crafter so if you can be patient or only need one or two items I can probably accomodate your request. Contact me anytime and we can work together to make you something beautiful and unique. Thank you for visiting! Hope to hear from you soon.

Shipping
Shipping charges include shipping and handling. I do not ship to PO Boxes.

If you need an item by a certain date, please contact me before you make your purchase to let me know the date you need it. I don't do next day shipping, but if you need something sent Priority Mail we can work something out via Convo.
