Returning customer to this Lovely Shoppe. Recently I was browsing through ETSY looking for SEA TURTLE handcrafted card creations and I came across this Lovely Shoppe. I placed an order for the Sea Turtle card and JUST LOVED IT! The creativity and design is so REALISTIC to NATURE. I asked the Shoppe Owner Heather if she would do a Custom Order for me. She was so WONDERFUL to work with and the turnaround time was just FANTASTIC even though I placed a NO RUSH on my order. Each and everyone turned out BEAUTIFUL. I'll be sharing some and hoarding the others, thinking of framing a few as gifts. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS SHOPPE FOR HIGH CRAFTSMANSHIP, QUALITY, CREATIVITY, DESIGNING + TIME INVESTED on each and every card. I personally want to Thank the Shoppe Owner HEATHER for handling this order for me.Another GREAT SHOPPING EXPERIENCE!

I was surfing through ETSY looking for cards with Sea Turtles. I came across this LOVELY SHOPPE and I knew I HAD to have this handcrafted card creation. When I received this BEAUTY, I immediately knew I wanted more. So I placed a Custom order with this Shoppe. I just LOVE the color combinations that were hand water colored on the Sea Turtle. The creativity of the design is so very peaceful and very natural in appearance. I'm extremely HAPPY that I found this Shoppe. The creativity is AWESOME.

This hand crafted card creation is ABSOLUTELY ADORABLE! I just love the baby deer with the soft rustic yarn bow. Nice color combinations used in creating this card including watercoloring, stamping. Recommended Shoppe! TU Heather. First time shopping experience was a wonderful experience.

Lots of things start with "P" but for me it's all about PAPER!

I have a real passion for paper. I've always been crafty, starting with drawing and creating greeting cards for family members at a very young age. But my love of paper arts really began in 1996 when I went along with my mom and some friends to my first rubber stamping class and I've been hooked on working with paper ever since.
I'm mostly self taught, I enjoy just picking up something new and giving it a try.
I love giving new life to old, discarded objects, especially vintage books that are unloved and falling apart so at least a part of them can once again be treasured and adored.
I've taught stamping, scrapbooking and altered arts classes for over 15 years and even owned a rubber stamp store for a few years. My work has been published in several magazines including Somerset Studio, Stamper's Sampler, Take Ten, Altered Arts, FOLK and Vamp Stamp News.

I get lots of questions about how my pendants are made so here's a little bit about soldering...The process I use to make my soldered pendants takes several steps. First my favorite part is finding just the right image in a vintage book or cutting out and piecing together a tiny collage, then I sandwich the papers between two pieces of glass. Next I wrap the edges of the glass with copper tape and using a soldering gun I melt solder over the tape. (here's where I have to admit how clumsy I am and how I very often burn myself during this part of the process:)) Then the pieces are cleaned, buffed and polished, I use solder that is lead free so it's safe wear against skin and also contains silver so they come out bright and shiny. Or for an aged look I might add a patina over the solder instead.

**SUPPORT HANDMADE** All items in my shop are hand made by me from start to finish (with the exception of vintage ephemera and ball chains)

Care of soldered pendants:
Pendants are not water proof and should be removed prior to showering or swimming. Since they are made of glass they should be treated with care. I use solder that contains silver, so if you wish your piece to patina leave it exposed to air, if not seal it in an air tight bag (such as a zip top bag). Silver jewelry polish can be used to bring back any lost shine. Clean with a little glass cleaner on a paper towel. Do not immerse in water.
