A great purchase and great communication with seller! Highly recommend purchasing from this shop! Not only did she answer all my questions but she went far and beyond in customer service to make sure I was receiving the best materials for my little projects! Thank you again for your time and communication! Such a pleasure working with you!!

I managed to kill the first batch I was sent, and Cyndi sent me more with tips on how to care for it. Very pleased over all.

How we evolved our "ByLightOfMoon" Handmade items and Supplies Shoppe!

We offer "ByLightOfMoon" as our Handmade and Supplies Items Shoppe for my Mother and me.

My Mom (Rosemary) loves to sew, quilt, cook and read. She has done “Handmade” all my life as I grew up. She handmade our Christmas front door every year from oilcloth and felt embellishments I remember and throughout the year dabbled in this and that crafting. She has always knitted and crocheted and sewed my clothes as a child along with garage sale attending. She started antiquing and tole painting in the 1960's on all our furniture, moved to intensive china painting in the 1970's thru 1990's, took up quilting, and enjoys quilting with appliqué work now in her 80's. She has always loved to read. She has made "Rosemary's Handbags" here. My Mom is not much on the computer so we share this site as a collective Shoppe.

I am Mixed Media Altered Art artist. I am always collecting items (really, I am a pack-rat) and use Recycled, Vintage, Reuse, Redo, and may incorporate some new materials now and then as a finishing edge for quality in my items. I like to Recycle, Up-cycle, and shop Charity Thrift stores. I now spend most of my time in the forest since I can now walk right out my front door to where we used to drive hours to vacation too. I love country living and the Nantahala Forest surrounds me in North Carolina. I am a lover of my imagination along with dragonflies, fairies, elves, hobbits, gnomes, sprites, mermaids, a magical world of fairy tales.

My husband retired and we moved to the mountains in North Carolina where I fell more in love with the forest than ever before. We live in the Nantahala Forest in a small cabin and I spend much time in the woods lurking, collecting, and photographing nature items.

I just started offering my Photograph! I love taking photos of country settings!I offer photographs of: Nature, Country, Forest, Rusty Crusty ,Flowers, Barns, Wishing Wells, Tire Swings, Farm Equipment, Insects, Dragonflies, Vintage Logging, Street Signs, Mushrooms, Spider Webs, Unusual, Deer, Butterflies, Collage, Collection, Take a Look!
And, Keep watching for more additions.

I now offer Live and Dried Forest Nature Natural Items; moss, dried mushrooms, tree knots, lichen, specialty North Carolina stones. and a variety of nature samplers for Curiosity boxes, Shadow Boxes or your own mossy gardens where you make your own magic, etc. for sale in my Supplies section. Make a Fairy, Hobbit or Gnome Garden, Terrarium, Zen area, Bonasi, etc.

I have collected many Vintage items since around 2003 from auctions, estate sales, thinking I could resell and pay medical bills when I started living with chronic pain from Neuropathy and later for reuse in my art or for sale at my sister site on Etsy's " frstyfrolk's DragonflyzDreams" Vintage Shoppe. here on Etsy

My Mother, "Rosemary" has always loved to sew, paint, knit, crochet, read, and/or cook while I was the lazy one. She also was re-arranging our home as I grew up so when my Father came home from a work trip he had to watch where he stepped as she would shop garage sale's and refinish furniture the shabby chic way folks call it today. She loved green and black as I remember. She moved from Tole Painting to an Excellent China Painter and Sewing to Quilting and Applique today. She has offered here handbags, like she has made for me over the years.
