About

Living to Create & Share ~ Aspire to Inspire.

Selling supplies on Etsy happened by accident, but it turned out to be one of the most rewarding things we've ever taken on.

Thank you, to all of our Etsy customers & Etsy - we love you!

Our MISSION STATEMENT:

To openly and honestly share our creative knowledge in the hopes of changing the world one life at a time.

We believe:
Always do the best you can.

~Our Story~
We have been self employed since 1994. Artisan products have always been our focus. It was only natural that we would find Etsy at some point. We began designing and selling unique hand knit and handmade sweaters made in South America. We operated kiosks in Malls selling knits during the holiday season in upstate NY and throughout Wisconsin. From there we began wholesaling at trade shows around the country. We were lucky to be picked up by Target Direct and put in numerous mail order catalogs. We were in 100s of retail shops around the country. Our sweater sets and baby blankets were top sellers within the category. We had dozens of sales reps representing us in various categories and markets in all regions of the country. It was an exciting time. Over the years, small business has changed dramatically. The majority of those family boutiques, resort shops and gift shops have since closed their doors, sadly.

As things shifted in the trade, we moved into making crafty trinkets ourselves for the gift industry. It all started after I had breast cancer and and a fellow survivor I knew was selected to be on the Cheerios boxes as an Ambassador. I wanted to help her raise money. It started when I made and gave her craft trinkets for her to give away with every donation she received. The trinkets were so popular that I decided to make a business with them. We developed a line and marketed it through our sales reps to boutique shops for a few years. As business came and went I wanted to teach others how to make the items we were selling and here I am:)

I can tell you this - there is nothing more powerful than hearing from a customer on Etsy who tells me that I changed her/his life with the ideas and know-how that I shared or the inspiration I provided. This is why I do what I do. For me, it used to be all about the feeling of happiness when someone loved a knit they wore or had their child photographed in. Now it is so much bigger than that. When you can play a part in inspiring someone or help someone start a successful business it really doesn't get much better than that.

Thanks so much for reading our story and thanks for stopping by to see us.
~Carol

Frequently asked questions

When will my order ship?

We process orders as they come in and ship daily by USPS. Our pick up is generally around 9am EST. If your order comes in we try our best to get it out as we stay caught up 24 hours a day :) Please check our banner and announcements for updates.

Can I have my order ship FedEx instead of USPS?

By all means. Please add a note in the box at checkout. Our turnaround time may increase by 1 (or 2) days because we will have to drop the parcel off at a FedEx drop off.

Do you ship on Saturdays?

YES!! We ship nearly every Saturday, We try to post an announcement on our banner on our home page if we can't ship due to vacation or illness. Please check to be sure - but 99.9% of the time we do ship on Saturdays.

What countries do you sell to?

If you are having trouble ordering please reach out to us. We only ship orders to the EU by request due to laws which make it a risk for us. If you are trying to place an order but are having trouble please send us a convo and we will research the situation to see if we can ship to you. If you are in the EU then you must agree to our no refund/ exchanges only policy. You will be responsible for the return shipping if you decide you would like to exchange any merchandise. Customs and duty will be your responsibility. Sorry to be so harsh, but the law has encouraged scamming which hurts everyone.

What is your policy regarding Safety and Legal?

Our items are intended for adult purchases and to be used by adults. Small pieces can be a choking hazard to young children. We sell only to adults over 18 years of age. By purchasing you agree to keep items away from children and indemnify seller of any and all liability. Buyer agrees to release Seller from any liability when making the decision to purchase. By making the decision to purchase our items you agree to be responsible for all laws in your state and country applicable to the safety and handling of the products and all other legal issues that may arise. Please ask questions if specific issues are not stated in my listing. We recommend that you request a sample to test. Thank you.

Can you explain the measurements of your craft supplies?

MEASUREMENTS - Craft pieces have descriptive measurements which can vary due to the handmade nature. Some people refer to items in inches and others talk in millimeters. Often times, for example, 1 inch and 25 mm are used interchangeably even though they are not the same exact measurement. We try very hard to offer items that work together and we can not be responsible for slight variations in size descriptions. 16mm trays work with 16mm glass, for example, We welcome your questions and will not be responsible for dissatisfaction resulting from artisan characteristics perceived by the buyer as flaws. Please request a sample to test. Handmade lengths can vary by 5-10%.

Why do you refer to your craft supplies as 'artisan'?

Many of our items are made in China. Items are made in batches and many are handmade. Each batch can vary slightly in color and other features. As artisan crafters ourselves - for over 25 years - we inspect each batch of inventory as it arrives and we try to add comments and updates to the listings. It is hard for us to know which batch each customer has had previously. Please, please ask us if you have any questions. We will try our best to work with you to get what you are searching for :)

Do you offer discounts and coupons?

Absolutely!!! We do set our pricing as everyday low pricing because we understand that many buyers like to order in small quantities. We do have a bulk section for listings 100+ which do often times have better rates so please check out that category and see if those items may work for you. Feel free to shoot over a convo and I can check inventory and see if I can offer a discount on something you may not see in the bulk section. Our goal really is not to run out of things :) without sacrificing on offering great quality craft components at reasonable pricing.
Coupon codes are on our Banner and/or in our announcements under the banner. One coupon per order. Coupons must be inputted by the buyer.
Throughout the year we offer Freebie listing.

Do you offer tracking, Insurance, Shipping Upgrades and Sampler listings?

Yes - you can find tracking located on your receipt in Etsy. There is a link for updates right on your receipt (upper right corner) for your convenience. Your receipt is found under "YOU" "PURCHASES".
We also have a listing on our featured area under the banner for upgrades.

Care instructions

In general, our supplies need no real care with the exception of silver plated items. Silver always tarnishes when exposed to air. It will oxidize over time. In some cases it takes a year if the item is alloy or a few weeks if the item is brass or iron. With care and attention, you can easily offer shiny silver items without worry. First, keep your supplies wrapped up in plastic/tissue paper. If an item does tarnish use a silver polish to shine them up. If you are selling silver items to the public you may want to provide care instructions for silver items. Antique finishes really do not require much care at all :) If you have questions please just ask.
