About

Quality Handmade Gifts, But People First!

I’m an approved Etsy Wholesale seller. Ask me for my line sheet!

Orange Blossoms is a strong proponent of the "people before profits" philosophy. I hope you agree that this comes through in my interactions with my customers. My customers' satisfaction with my products is just as important to me as maintaining and growing my business. I also put a small "freebie" in with every order I ship out.

I quit my day job on 10/31/16 to run Orange Blossoms full time. It has been the most work and the most fun I've ever had!

If you need a particular item, I am happy to work with you to create exactly what you've envisioned. Do you see something in my shop that you like but would like it even more in a different color? Want to add personalization? Just message me!

THE BACKSTORY
I've been crafting since I was 11. There was a "variety store" with a craft department near my middle school, and whenever I had a few dollars, I would buy some supplies to make something new. Back then, it was mostly little animals made from pom poms and pipe cleaners. I dabbled in sewing as well, at least until I sewed through my thumb.

I picked up sewing again in high school, and I got really into it at age 20. For several years, I would sew a new garment almost every weekend. Many items in my wardrobe were handmade by me. Unfortunately, sewing causes me back pain, so I cannot sew as much as I'd like.

NOW
I began making hair accessories with ribbon in 2011 after being inspired by online tutorials. I started with a few spools of ribbon and got hooked fast! In 2014, I started doing machine embroidery, particularly "in the hoop" designs. It quickly became my favorite pastime. I love to create things with fabric, choose the colors, and share my work with others. It continues to amaze me how many things can be made with an embroidery machine!

I now have shelves full of felt, a few hundred spools of ribbon, dozens of rolls of vinyl, drawers filled with elastic, thread, and other fabrics and supplies filling my workroom. I find making items for my shop a great way to relax despite it being my full time career.

In addition to Etsy, I am also a budding You Tuber, a wife and mother of 3 kids and 6 cats.

I love social media! I have a channel on You Tube www.youtube.com/channel/UCHTD1d9JZD-guour5NKJ6Gg

Frequently asked questions
Wholesale availability

I'd be delighted to supply your shop with my quality handmade products! Most items in my shop are available for wholesale. Please message me for my linesheet.

Custom and personalized orders

Almost everything in my shop can be customized. Examples include changing thread colors, fabrics, fonts, and sometimes sizes. Please message me so we can discuss what you have in mind!

Gift wrapping and packaging

I keep packaging to a minimum for environmental reasons, but if you'd like gift packaging, I'll gladly fulfill your request. Just choose the gift wrap option at checkout.

Can you make something based on a character?

Sorry, but I cannot sell anything that uses copyrighted or trademarked images or phrases. It is illegal. Honesty is something I value and want to model for my children, so I will not use someone else's intellectual property without their permission.
