About

New purpose in creativity

I originally started my shop in 2011 to sell my macrame bracelets that I had been making at the farmer's market stand during my downtime. Once I began Graduate School full time, my activities on here slowed down so I could focus on my schoolwork, which included learning how to drape and make patterns, masks, dye and paint fabric, and other skills useful for working in theatrical costume shops. This summer I fell on some harder times, as I found out I have Asperger's and have been working to overcome the difficulties it has presented in my life. However, in taking the time to work on myself, I've also been able to take extra jobs in my spare time and come back to creating things for my shop. Now that my skill base has greatly expanded, I've been able to create a greater variety of items for my shop, including bow ties, bags, macrame, and scarves. I am also hoping to add clothes and more custom cosplay items very soon, and have found a new purpose in making things that others can enjoy!
