Our Merry Christmas plaque from 8th and Ellsmere was exactly as I had pictured. It arrived on time for our Holidays even with the late order request I placed. I am a happy return customer and I look forward to my next purchase.

Absolutely beautiful! Lauren is responsive, patient, and does quality work. My order was processed and received quickly - I definitely recommend her shop!
Using my God-given gifts, strengths and passions to create personal and memorable items for others.
Before I got my first salary-paying big-girl job, people would ask me, “What do you want to be when you grow up?” My answer was the same every time… “Either a Full-Time Student, Racecar Driver, or Artist.” Then I would laugh and say, “No, but really… I’m not sure…” and then try to say something professional-sounding.
The reality was, art was a passion of mine, but when I pictured life as an artist, I pictured a starving French painter in a béret making just enough for Ramen noodles. I didn’t see “artist” as a viable job, let alone career. It wasn’t the responsible or practical route to take, according to popular belief… and so I shelved that dream.
I dabbled in painting, photography, and other forms of artistic creation on the side, but I never really had the time to focus on it like I wanted. So I would dream, and yearn for time that I didn’t have to really feed my craving to create.
Through many prolonged and consistent promptings from the Lord, God showed me that I was given certain gifts for a reason, and that it was time to take that dream off the shelf.
And so I quickly veered left, quit my job, and hopped off the main road and onto some unmarked, bumpy road with plenty of twists and turns. I re-opened my Etsy shop and vowed to make it a place marked by honesty, creativity, passion, positivity and quality.
So here I am, pursuing my passions, reprioritizing my life, and creating beautiful things. I hope you enjoy these beautiful things as much as I enjoy the journey it takes to get there.
With a background in advertising, graphic design and website optimization, Lauren left her day job to pursue sole proprietorship and a career in art.
