About

Built by a sewing machine, some found objects and a dream.

It all started in childhood, when my then stay-at-home mom started crafting at in-home Boutiques in our local East Bay area, CA. Toll painting, sewing, jewelry and accessories, even dolls! This woman still is my idol, and everything I do I attribute to having watched her while growing up.

I am now a stay-at-home mom, and find myself needing a creative outlet since I left my retail buying job. I keep a pretty diverse portfolio these days, learning to knit, learning to sew, recycling jewelry, making stationery and creating l’objet are a part of what you see in the shop currently. I love paper as a medium, though any fabric or object at any time can strike my fancy!

Everything is hand made, and made with extreme care and responsibility. Responsibility to the environment by reusing or repurposing, responsibility to you by keeping prices affordable, and responsibility to me by keeping my items fun and full of whimsy.

    a sewing machine, some found objects and a dream. I love vintage and repurposing items that may not deem to be 'useful' or ‘in style’ anymore. I also love playing with textures and colors!
