☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ WELCOME to Splendid Little Stars! ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆

CLOTHING: All of the clothing you see in my Etsy store has been designed by me. I do the whole process from designing to dyeing and painting to packaging.
I have been designing and dyeing as a professional artist for a long time—about 19 years! Besides selling at art and craft shows, I have also produced commissioned work, teams shirts, and supplied fundraisers. (Local Cincinnati commissions have included Kast-A-Way Swimwear & Cincinnati Conservatory of Music.)
[For information about the dyeing process, see the end of this page.]
I teach the art of tie dyeing to youth groups in the central to eastern Cincinnati area.--Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, church youth groups, birthday parties (high school age & under). Convo me if interested.

JEWELRY: I have been making jewelry for many years. I love working with beads and sterling silver. All designs and the execution thereof, are mine. My jewelry company is MEF Designs.

☆ ☆ ☆ Come see shirts I made on Adrienne's blog: http://adrienneinohio.blogspot.com/2010/01/more-from-fort-desoto.html
See pink snowman socks on Joey and Aleethea's blog: http://joeyandaleethea.typepad.com/blog/2009/12/ok-so-whats-cuter.html

☆ ☆ ☆ I've been spotted on INDIE SPOTTING several times!

☆ I hope you love your Splendid Little Stars purchase! ☆

A note about HAND~DYED FABRICS: Due to the nature of hand-dyeing, there may be some slight variation in the color. And due to the nature of a hand~made item, there may be slight variations in design. This makes your item unique!

GIFTS: I would be happy to ship your gift purchase directly to the recipient. I can gift wrap it, too, at no extra charge. Be sure to let me know if you would like me to include a handwritten message from you to the recipient.
