This is a custom cake box made for my son's first year photos. I sent photos of cakes that I liked along with the colors I wanted and in less than two weeks this gorgeous cake box arrived at my door step!! It was exactly what I had envisioned and matched my son's outfit for his photos perfectly!! I couldn't be more happy with the excellent customer service and accuracy of the custom cake box!! I would highly recommend using this company!!
And there are those times that I have an idea, I'm excited, I'm running with it and... it just falls flat. My original idea just runs out of gas. Then, in that case, I might let my materials take over the direction. Hmmmm, this piece of jewlery might work here...Hey, this button is better...And if I use this button, then this scrap of fabric would work too... There I go, being carried on the stream of supplies and colors and fabrics that somehow find their way together, with me along for the ride.
OK, enough of that hi-falutin artsty talk. Back down to business. What do I actually USE to make my items? They're created using a mix of new materials as well as vintage treasures I find while I'm nosing around my favorite local second-hand shop, or browsing my usual on-line haunts. The glues that hold everything together--literally--are a few favorite adhesives that never let me down. I get those in bulk whenever I can, on sale on rare occasions. They're just too essential to hold off waiting for the "right" price. So, even though it might hurt, I pay whatever is necessary for these stalwart craft companions. (Maybe one day it won't matter so much what they cost, but that day is not today.)
And that brings me to my Etsy shop. I thought this site was the best vehicle to bring my items to you, those who appreciate handmade goods. You are those who know how important handcrafted items are to the business of America, to our culture and to the person who acutally puts hands to materials, bringing ideas to reality. Thank you for your interest...now you can get back to browsing!
