About

In Pursuit Of My Own Happiness

As a kid, I was known for 2 things; making stuff and being over the top, all the time!

Growing up was interesting because I never fit into the stereotypical, box that surrounded me. I lived in a place where I didn't belong and I was totally accepting of that, but it wasn't an easy task. As an escape, I surrounded myself with texture, color, and random things. I can't remember how many things I made, unmade to remake.

As I grew older I was faced with the "realization" that it might not be possible to "earn a living" doing what I love. So I suppressed the creative urge, went "mainstream", and at the young age of 15, I got a real job!

I woke up one day and realized that I had been beating the same perpetual drum for over 15 years. I was an adult, and I was somebodies mother. I also realized that if I wasn't happy in my own right, then I couldn't provide a happy atmosphere for my children. For over 15 years, I worked for companies that could care less about missed milestones, recitals, goals and tears shed because mom had to work.

My oldest was nearly a teenager and for the bulk of her life I worked day in and day out, while she attended school and daycare. My youngest was 2 and the situation was the same.

I set out to make some major changes. My AMAZING friend Brandy told me about Etsy. She said that my talent and skill set, paired with the faith that I have in myself, could only be recipe for success.

Fast forward ..
I starting making a few things each day, opened my shop and here I am.
I'm so grateful for a platform, that highlights handmade.

I would love to see my handmade flourish into a "real job" that provides an income which will allow me to spend more time with my family.

I love what I do, and I want to share my love of making with the world : )
