About

I've loved making crafts all my life!

I have enjoyed making all sorts of crafts my whole life. I can remember as a kid making crafts with my brothers, sister and my mom. My mom always loved sewing and also taught me how to sew at a young age.

In my 20's I started oil painting on canvas with my Dad. We shared many hours painting pictures. We even had a friendly competition one day and decided to paint a similar beach theme. There was no winner, both were beautiful in their own way. It's nice to have such fond memories of time spent with him, now that he is gone.

Soon after I got married, I started making all sorts of Christmas angels and candy cane ornaments using many different mediums. I can recall one year the company I worked for sponsored a Christmas bazaar and I was able to set up a table and sell some of my creations to the other employees. I guess it was my first taste of selling my crafts.

About 9 years ago I found a kit in my crafting supplies that I had purchased years before. It was a decoupaging kit that I had never used. I decided to decoupage a light switch cover and liked how it came out. It took a while before I perfected the technique, but soon I had the steps down to make clean, nicely finished, decorative light switch and outlet covers.

I began selling them on Ebay and then a few years later discovered Etsy. I set up shop in January of 2009 and went live February 1st, 2009. I have since expanded my product line to include canvas paintings for nurseries and children's rooms, night lights, decorated wood letters, in addition to the light switch covers and outlet covers. I enjoy making handcrafted items immensely, and am so happy it can also provide extra income to help in raising my family.

Thank you for visiting my shop!!
