Stay-at-home-mom that loves to create in my spare time

My shop was born from a failed craft fair. I participated in my first craft fair with a friend & sold basically nothing. So, I put everything that I'd made into my Etsy shop, & sold practically nothing. The only thing that really sold was some paper garland that I'd forgotten to even take to the fair. I had a few custom orders for yards of garland, & that eventually evolved into certain shop staples. I love trying out new color combinations & patterns for holidays. I still get quite a few custom requests, & many of those turn into popular go-to items in my shop. I love how my shop has evolved & focused on something that I really love to make.

I've always been a bit of a self teacher. When I see something that I love, I think to myself, "I could probably make that!" And then I go home & teach myself how to do it.

When my mother got married, my great-grandmother gave her a set of crocheted snowflakes for her Christmas tree. When I got married, my mom gave me one of those snowflakes. I thought that was so neat, but I wanted an entire tree of those snowflakes. So, I found a book & taught myself how to do thread crochet so that I could have that tree full of snowflakes.

When I had children, it became too much of a chore to keep up with my scrapbooking. That's when I discovered digital scrapbooking. I taught myself how to edit photos, create digital papers & embellishments, & now I'm pretty much up to date on scrapbooking all of my photos.

When we moved to a new place for my husband's job, I noticed a lot of prickly pear fruit on the local cacti. I'd heard about prickly pear jelly & decided to give it a try. I picked the fruit, put on two layers of gloves, peeled & cooked the fruit & strained the juice. Now, I make blue-ribbon-winning prickly pear jelly.

I love to try new things & my crafts tend to reflect that. My interests range from making wooden baby rattles, to paper bunting, sewing dresses for my daughters, to making tasty caramel.

I'm a mother, a crafter, an adventurer & a self-teacher. Welcome to my shop!
