Welcome to my shop. This is my story :-)
As a kid I loved spending hours and hours in my aunt's studio. Seamstress by occupation. At the age of 12 I remember sewing a simple skirt on her sewing machine (under her supervision of course). I also have memories of my mother making theatre costumes in the house for a short period of time and most of the times she was making clothes for me and my sister. As far as I remember I was also creative. Always had my hands on making a bracelet with beads and threads, drawing or trying to make my own beads.
Unfortunately, all this creative part of me faded away along the school years. I became an IT engineer and worked in this field for almost 15 years. Moved to Manchester, UK with my husband and did a master in geographical information science. While doing my master I bought felt and started experimenting on christmas ornaments and stockings. Soon I realised that my creative time was my only joy in my daily routine. I then bought a sewing machine, read the manual and started sewing. Never had to make lessons, everything was there in my mind. It all came natural. I had it and didn't know it :-)
In 2011 moved back to Greece and opened my etsy shop. It gives me such a great pleasure to know that my items are travelling around the world and give smiles to the people receiving them.
In 2013 I gave birth to my daughter, Myrto and ever since I am a stay-at-home mom and a crafter. We now live in Cyprus having many long breaks to Greece, having workspaces in both countries.
I like to make different things and put my hands on different projects each time. If I like a design I probably experiment with different fabrics. That is why you will notice a variety of things in my shop. I have a special love on making bags since it is my favorite accessory.
It never stops, each time something different :-)
