About

Floss Candy is a sweet concoction of dreams, fiber and glitter.

I've always made things. I remember as a child making up my own Pokemon clone card game, 'I also made a cardboard playground for my cat figures. Printer paper was for drawing. We learnt sewing skills in the brownies. I wrote stories about time traveling Furbies. I remember getting my first sewing machine and making a felt bag based on one from The Legend of Zelda.

Eight years ago I completed a two year course on Art and Design, specialising in Fashion. I was burnt out, college had not been a great experience and the structured design process had killed my desire to create.

It would be many years later until I started making again, I decided to open my first shop - Why Is A Raven. I proclaimed I would make a living selling things I would make! But I had no idea what to make, and was out of practice. I tried to sell rings, sequined brooches and body scrub. I was very naive.

Then, I discovered Cross Stitch. I had previously stitched as a child, and was told that I had natural talent. The process of creating an image from thousands of x's is incredibly therapeutic, you are always completing small goals and watching your project grow.

Cross Stitch gave me focus and Floss Candy was created.

I also have a second shop here; https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/MayContainUnicorn
