After purchasing on Decemeber 31st, order did not ship for weeks. Seller was very responsive when I message her, and offered to resend the package that seemed to have gotten lost in translation. It was sent again, only never to recieve it. Was just messaged and offered a refund. Much of this seems to have been due to the post office, but none the less very frustrating.

Very cute pattern. Easy to follow. :)
From the Hospital To Horizontal Designs to Studio Create...
Horizontal Designs was created after I started selling custom crochet and jewelry pieces I had been making for friends from home (in bed) while recovering from my long hospital stay (almost 9 months!). Before Horizontal Designs, I owned a successful floral design business that was featured in national magazines and was very active in the wedding/event industry. We had to shut down when I suddenly was hospitalized during the pregnancy of my second child. We both made it outr safely, thank God, and while recovering I delved in to a ton of new crafts!
Prior to my floral design business, I was a published research scientist studying marine biology. I love the ocean, science, and nature, so many of my designs carry these themes. I also love funky whimsical stuff, steampunk Victorian style, fairies, geeky things, vintage, bohemian and rockabilly fashion. Pirates and ninjas are the coolest.
My business was named Horizontal Designs in honor of my condition, Dysautonomia, which causes people to faint and end up horizontal. We found out recently that mine is caused by long time, undiagnosed Lyme Disease. I luckily am doing a bit better, but this name honors those that are still struggling with being vertical on a daily basis, it can be a very debilitating condition.
In 2016, Studio Create was born, and we have a resale space/studio inside a local art gallery. I'm not there much, but you can find craft supplies, handmade items, and lots of fun unique stuff during the gallery hours. It is located at 1314 Kempsville Rd, Virginia Beach, VA, inside Utopia Feni Creative Studios.
My kids are my models, along with a few Styrofoam heads that creep me out, but wear my items well, and I could not do this without my family due to my health.
I hope you enjoy my shop, designs, and message me with any questions or comments! Have a wonderful (and vertical) day!
