About

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.

It is my goal to make beautiful, fun, and interesting things. I like to find creative ways to incorporate unexpected materials, and to respect the environment through up-cycling whenever possible. I never sell anything that I wouldn't be proud to wear, and I never list anything at a price that I would not be willing to pay. I think that art is wonderful and fun, and that wearing it should enliven and enlighten. Not too much to strive for, I think.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
I accept payment through PayPal or electronic check. If paying through electronic check, I will wait for the check to clear before shipping the item.

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.
Shipping
****Special Note***** All items ordered between 8/18 and 8/24 will be shipped on 8/25. If you have any questions, please contact the shop owner.

Items shipping within the continental US will be shipped USPS First Class Mail with delivery confirmation. I provide the confirmation number when I verify your item as shipped. Ready to purchase items ship within 1-2 business days, and generally arrive in 2-3 business days.

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
I do not accept returns.

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
Custom orders are encouraged.

I am always open to new and exciting wholesale and consignment opportunities, particularly in (but not limited to) the Chicagoland area.
