How wonderful to Make.
For as long as I can remember, I have been a maker.
It began with collecting. Bits of lace saved to make troll doll clothes, interesting branches to decorate my room, empty toilet paper rolls to create binoculars - everything has a purpose if you look hard enough. And I was always looking.
It took some time for my skills to catch up to my imagination but, after years of study, both professional and personal, my hands are able to create the things that I dream up. And I am loving every minute of it.
I still draw a lot of inspiration from items I have collected. Sometimes a great button is the perfect focal point for a crocheted hat. Sometimes a neglected, vintage piece can have a new life or a scrap of leather can become something amazing. Whatever the inspiration, my joy comes from taking the item, the raw material, and transforming it. Building something completely new. That, to me, is the definition of creativity.
I love being creative. I love making.

Accepted payment methods
- Accepts Etsy gift cards
If ordering a custom item, I will set up a private listing in the agreed upon dollar amount. Once payment is received, the item will be completed and shipped.
All taxes are included in the purchase price.
Items shipping to addresses outside the continental US will be shipped via USPS First class mail, but cannot include delivery confirmation.
Custom items ship 1-2 business days after final client approval.
If you require insurance, an upgrade in shipping, or require delivery by a certain date, please convo me and we will discuss terms and any additional fees.
Refunds and Exchanges
Exchanges may sometimes be made in the case of items damaged upon arrival. If this is the case, please contact me and we will discuss the best course of action. Claims of damage must be made within one week of delivery date. I am not responsible for items lost during shipping (the delivery confirmation number should prevent that from happening).
While I do not accept exchanges on custom items, I want you to be totally satisfied with the finished product. We will work together to make sure this is the case.
Additional policies and FAQs
I am always open to new and exciting wholesale and consignment opportunities, particularly in (but not limited to) the Chicagoland area.
