The items never arrived. The payment was never refunded.(I paid her on Feb 28 and eventually made the deadline of May 26 to receive the item or the refund)In fairness, she did explain sh'e been ill, but promised a different,earlier, deadline that she did not meet.

About

I love seeing people smile when they get something handmade! Being creative & creating things is therapeutic for me & it helps others ~ Great Combo!

I have been crafting and selling my creations since I was about 6 years old. I started with friendship bracelets and simple beaded necklaces. My Mom is an artist and crafter, I grew up watching her create wonderful works of art and did projects with her often. I went with my mom to craft shows and artists showcases as she sold her work and sometimes I to got to sell mine. It was always lot's of fun.
So as I got older it was only natural that I would continue to be creative, make things and sell them. I've done several different things over the years....I had a gift basket business for a little while in high school and college. I also tied and sold fly fishing flies for a while.
Fast forward....a few years ago I decided I wanted to try my hand at crafting and selling my creations more regularly....you know make a business at it. So I opened a store here on ETSY. Since I traveled for work a couple of times a month sporadically, I thought it would be good extra income and relaxing when I was home.
I struggled for 9 months to get things off the ground, it was going ok. Then my husband and I had to move for his work, he got laied off and I had to close my store here for a while because I had to get J.O.B.
Fast forward again....I have since started my own business again as a massage specialist, have spent the last 6 years growing and expanding. I now own and run a Vitality, Healing & Movement Center, am a certified Art of Feminine Presence Teacher and do private coaching with Women & Men. Some months are tight, it's not always easy owning your own business.
So last year (2015) in November I decided to get back to doing creative things, I had been missing it and I needed something to help me de-stress. While I was at it I thought why not try and earn some extra money for the holidays, so I opened my shop up again. A few months later my father's health started going down hill, we have since moved him in to live with us so we can help him.
I have spent this year (2016) getting my father settled in, trying to grow my business and take better care of myself.
I have decided that 2017 is going to be an awesome year! So I have made some changes, taken steps to make business successful and in the process have had some wonderful opportunities presented to me.
One of my commitments is to do more crafting and creation this year since it so therapeutic for me. So I have opened my shop again to help me raise money for one of the wonderful opportunities I have....it's going to be a once in a lifetime experience. A writing retreat with a Nationally known writing coach and author in Hawaii in May 2017. I only need to raise $4,000 for this and I know I can do it.
I hope you will support me in this effort by sharing, commenting and liking items. And if you really like something treating yourself to it. :)
I hope you enjoy my creations and if there is something you would like but don't see it send me a note and I'll see if I can make it for you.
Thanks in advance for your support!

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalized orders

*Custom Orders are available, please contact me with your request. If you see something in my shop that you like but would like it in a different color please indicate which item and the color you would like it in. I will do my best to accommodate all requests.
*Please allow 1-4 weeks for most custom orders.

* All custom orders with a personalized name/word/saying on them or special material used must be paid for in advance.

Care instructions

For all crocheted items I recommend:
* Machine wash on gentle/hand wash cycle with similar colors, tumble dry on low or lay flat to dry.
* I recommend washing all items in a lingerie/delicates bag so other items in the wash don't get caught on the yarn.

You can have a lingerie/delicate bag added to your order for only $1.50. Please make sure to indicate that you would like one in the "notes to seller" during check out. I will then send you a revised invoice for the correct amount.

Pricing varies depending on the item.

Wholesale availability

I would love to provide you with some of my items for use with other items or for resale in another location.
Send me a convo letting me know what you are looking for or the exact item already in my shop (don't forget to check out my sold items for things that may not be currently listed). I will need to know how many you would like and any color or size preferences.
I will then work with you to come up with a price that works good for both of us.
All orders are always open to negotiations, hopefully we can come up with what works best for both.
Please do not purchase my items to resell here on etsy, unless we have made special arrangements for the items to be used along with some of your own items.
