One day I made stockings for my husband for Christmas

My Etsy journey began when my husband I couldn't afford to buy stockings for our first Christmas together, Using leftover decorator fabric given to me by my Grandma, I made us a set, which I still adore. Over the next few years I sold sets to neighbors who saw them. I had also upcycled some notebooks, which were highly admired. At that time, I decided to try selling online. Thus Artpixie was born.

Meanwhile, I took a summer drawing class, which ended up being an advanced methods exploration. I was reminded that painting and drawing bring me peace. I have realized that this may be the path in life that I am to take. I also enjoy the paper arts: stamping, die cutting, collage. quilling and other other mixed media methods, which you will also see in this store.

In the past few months, I have realized that I have two separate stores residing under the Artpixie umbrella. I have therefore begun to migrate my stockings and other holiday and decor items to a second store: www.artpixiechristmas.etsy.com. Please stop by that store to see these items.

We have a dog, a hamster and a fireplace. Hamster fur is unlikely, but a stay dog hair may escape me, and since the fireplace is in the same room where I sew, the stockings may have a faint smoke smell (which I try to avoid). Please let me know if you have any special concerns.

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

Can you embroider names?
I do not currently have the means to machine embroider names to stockings. However, you will find several options for wooden initials and name tags in my store. I also offer hand embroidered names. Contact me for more details.

Care instructions

Hanging towels can be machine washed. However, cold water and a gentle cycle are recommended to extend the life of your towel.

If your stocking needs cleaning, even spot cleaning, I highly recommend consulting with a professional. I use many different types of materials and they may require special cleaning techniques.

Why is my item a slightly different color than online?

This is one of the challenges of selling online. I check my images on my laptop and iPad, and again on my work computer to try and ensure accuracy of item coloring. However, your screen settings may vary from mine and therefore the color may be different. If the item you receive from me will not work, contact me within the required timeframe (14 days) and we will work together to find a solution.
