About

Making handmade gifts for your family and friends

This shop started as somewhere to sell my hand knit blankets and sewing projects. Then I designed a custom map for a friend and was on the hunt for pins to use to mark their travels. When I realized even Etsy didn't have anything like what I had in mind, I decided to make my own. As I do. I like to create imaginary items in my mind then unable to find them in the real world, set out to make or have made myself.
Eventually out of tiny airplanes I had a mold made and have improved the way I make the pins. Here they are https://www.etsy.com/ca/listing/218212850/miniature-airplane-map-marker-push-pins.
You can order your own map too. Printed on fabric so it won't tear like paper, you can mark your travels or where you'd like to go.
Handmade gifts are always best, whether made by your own hands or another maker's.

    Growing up we were taught that handmade gifts were best and I still believe it, whether you make it yourself or buy from another crafter. Each of my pieces is handmade and comes with it's own character and story
