I love this shoppe! I exclusively use these "blank inside" cards for all my special occasion greeting cards. No more store-bought cards for me! This shoppe uses recycled paper, vintage images, and eco ink. And I save money, too! The cards are large, with plenty of space to write your own, personal message. Have you ever saved a greeting card that contained NO personal message? I haven't, either! Get out your fountain pen or calligraphy pen and discover the joy of writing your own sincere message inside these lovely cards! Your greeting card will stand out, above all the others! These brown, recycled Kraft paper cards & envelopes, with my black calligraphy ink pen, represent my unique and personal style. The shoppe is always prompt in delivery.

Lost & Found: Girl Loses Job, Finds Homeless Vintage Singer, Starts New Life!

My father was an upholsterer and my mother made all of my clothes until I earned my own babysitting money to buy trendier fashions-none made as well or with love. I love to sew and photograph beautiful things - combining those is icing on the cake! When I found my 1960 Singer 500 "Rocketeer" sewing machine, I was in heaven. I hadn't sewn anything since eighth grade Home Ec class so why was I so compelled to sew? I think it was in my blood all along but I hadn't thought I could measure up to my parents' expertise.
I've always had a passion for textiles, especially linen, hemp and vintage fabrics. Loving handmade things and always finding it hard to find affordable quality, I set about learning to sew once again. I found several graphic designers on Etsy whose images I adored so I started off with heat transfers on burlap and linen pillows.
I am currently learning screenprinting so that I can take those same graphics as well as some of my own photographs and attempt a new translation of these images - different colors and tactility.
My other passion is film & photography. When I discovered I could combine them both, I jumped right in. My photographs are printed onto the fabric - amazing!
I'm loving my new life as a business owner and crafter and I take great pride in creating something personal, unique and handmade and then selling it to someone who shares in my appreciation of that item. I had no idea this could be my life one day so how do I thank being laid off?

    I came into sewing later in my life. Like many of you, I was nudged quite forcefully into crafting for a living after my previous working life took a tumble in the failing economy. I'm loving it and I'm not looking back -happiest when I'm creating!
