About

A Transformation of the Life of betsyDesign

My shop was not always called betsyDesign.

I started my shop after college back in 2008 and I named it Lizardous. I sold hand-made items, home decor, and vintage -- as I do today. I chose this name because I felt it encompassed the scatter-brained collections that I love (and because my adult name is Liz and my love of lizards). I love vintage and I love "making" things. I love how at the end of the day I can look at my creation and tell myself "I made that." I love how I am capable and passionate about hand-made items and supporting everything they stand for.

A year or so ago I needed a change -- I wanted to go back to my roots of my original name as a child (Betsy) and decided to re-name my shop as betsyDesign. I learned to create things when I was younger -- I grew up on a dairy farm in Northeastern Wisconsin and my mom taught me how to sew, knit, and crochet. Moving to the suburb of Chicago I no longer had those late-night teaching-lessons of learning a new skill, but wanted to forever show my gratitude of those days.

Today -- I make things. I make things that I love and want to share with you. I want you to see something in my shop and know it was made with care and love. I want you to have that connection with something that I've made that you might have with a scent you haven't smelled in a long time, but when you do it puts a smile on your face. I want you to know I put great care into making my items and describing them the best to my abilities and try to use recyclable materials for shipping.

I want you to experience betsyDesign.
