About

Otaku mom selling her crafts

As a homeschooling mom/stepmom of 4, I needed a way to keep my sanity while not spending a lot of money. So I found crafting. I love to make things and to show my love for all things nerdy, but we have a small house and can't fit all the things I make! So to make room for more crafts and make some extra money, I sell some of my crafts. This allows me to have an outlet for my creativity, as well as buy things like food, video games, and more yarn :)

I make everything by hand myself in the USA (to be more specific, in Griffith Indiana, which is close to the border to Chicago). I don't get any "assistance" from "manufacturers". I package and ship everything myself, I clip coupons to buy materials myself, I respond to emails myself; I do EVERYTHING myself. I hope that someday the kids can help with at least some of that, lol, but I will never send my ideas to a sweatshop overseas and call it handmade. I want stuff made with love and care, something that is going to last; not something mass produced that will fall apart just as quickly as it was made. I assume you want the same.

My house is smoke free and perfume free. I do have two dogs and lots of wool yarn in my house. If you have allergies to dogs or sheep, give me a heads up and I can take extra care with your item.

If you are a crafter, I sell yarn, patterns, safety eyes etc. over at yarncast.etsy.com
