Thank you! Good customer service, very fast to respond and ship. The larger one was just a little to tall to hold a picture steady but I would order again! Perfect for the occasion.

Melissa was fabulous to work with and our photo holders, which I used to hold our table name cards at our wedding were just beautiful and provided just the touch I was looking for. I got them so fast - was a great experience! Will order again.

"Just a Mom Staying Sane!"

Okay, I'm really just a creative at heart. I planned my first Halloween Party when I was in the 6th grade (handmade Bat invitations and all) and even decorated the walls of my teen bedroom with the Sunday Comics at one point.

Fast forward 20-something years and I still love planning parties and decorating and NOW, creating things that I think are pretty, useful and affordable.

How did I get started creating and selling my crafts? Well, I have a muse and she is the most wonderful thing that ever happened to my creative brain. My muse owns and operates an amazing little shop in the suburbs of Atlanta and one day she told me that I should make "stuff" and sell it in her shop along with other talented artists and crafters. I was thinking, "REALLY, ME?!?". Her response was one of positive and kind words that gave me the confidence to try. So, I decided to try my hand at making and selling "stuff" and my "stuff" actually sold out and I had to make more "stuff". So, that got me thinking that I might have a talent for creating things that others like enough that they want it for themselves!

Hooray for me!!! Why did it take me 30-something years to accept that I really am C R E A T I V E ?

Lastly, I know the headline of this story talks about being a mom staying sane and the truth is that this little Etsy shop has done that for me! Truth be told, Designing and Creating is my "therapy" and I am truly in love with my therapist!

Thank you, Etsy, for keeping me from going MAD!
