    About

    Saving up a little at a time, one craft at a time...

    I started my shop a long time ago, but never really sold much that I made. I put it aside at the time because I was too busy working at two fire departments, a rescue squad and volunteering at another department. Then mom got sick and my life got really complicated and scary.
    I'll fast-forward through the scary medical stuff with mom, the abuse at work at the hands of a horrid captain, and the broken relationships that left me a very different person.

    Then I met the man I'd marry. I'd like to say that a fairy tale followed, and it did in our hearts, but our lives got even more complicated. We got married, six weeks later his dad died, then one thing after another pulled us out of a honeymoon period and into a hard life. He got laid off for several weeks, then I got sick with Meniere's Disease (a hearing and balance disorder) and lost my job as a firefighter. Our first wedding anniversary was my last day at a job I loved. I was disabled and told to expect to lose my hearing and mobility over time. We found out a few months later my mom had cancer. I graduated in March 2011 with my masters in Special Education and never found a job in my field. Momma died in June, and eventually found a job at a small city hall as their clerk. I took the job so we'd have insurance, and fell in love with the town, people, and food.

    So to the title... We haven't had it easy, and though we are ready to have kids, nature and finances have made this impossible. So we have decided we will travel, spoil our nieces and nephews (and great nieces and nephews) and learn to embrace the life we have.
    Crafting brings me a lot of joy and I'd like it to help bring in some extra funds for our quest to find peace in the Childless Not By Choice life.
    We live in an adorable little house in sight of the mountains and our five kitties (Artemis, Orion, Ares, Nike and Sirius) keep us amused as we read our beloved history books and play D&D or Minecraft. (what? we are nerdy, nerdy, people).

    That's our story for now. So shop, tell your friends, and let me know how much you love the shop. Oh and if you want something custom, let me know I might be able to make it for you!
    Love always,
    Shelaine
