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. 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. Our pins are all based off of found objects of ones I’ve made out of clay or laser cut acrylic.
Our maps are ‘functional art’. They look nice on the wall but can also tell the story of where you’ve been, or would like to go. Printed on fabric so it won't tear like paper, you can mark your travels or where you'd like to go.
We do offer prints of some of our maps, and any design is available as a print or digital download.
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
