About

So the lover must struggle for words. -T.S. Eliot

I'm a writer. I've always wanted to be a writer. I grew up as a hearing child in the Deaf community and found that books and words, even when made with my hands, were how to express myself.

I was diagnosed with an illness that caused me to have a profound hearing loss and I found myself lost. While I knew sign, I felt trapped in the middle by being able to speak fully but not being able to hear fully. I turned to writing, but it was painful. Writing about myself and my diagnoses turned out to be harder than I imagined.

I turned to crafting with my hands and trying to discover other forms of expression. My husband was nothing but supportive of my random new hobbies, and the extra push I needed when one didn't pan out. Stamping and making jewelry or accessories with my hands felt like I was able to communicate on more than one level. I didn't feel trapped anymore, I felt revived.

When I stamp, in particular, I try to focus on words that someone might not say out loud, or they don't want to admit. I try to focus on words that can be shouted from rooftops or whispered in bed at night. Words that can't be said. Words that can't be heard. Words that just make you stop, if only for a moment.

    The hands behind the items. A ginger coffee drinker who likes dill pickle anything. Also gets a little nervous when she goes to say Worcestershire sauce.

    The support system. Great at organization and problem-solving. Will help with packaging for food. Has a wry sense of humor but will dust you in Mario Kart.

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

Of course! Just use the "Request Custom Order" on the listing you'd like to change! Or contact me directly and we can figure out exactly what you would like.

Sizing details

All measurements of our products are in each listing.

Care instructions

If an item requires certain care it will be posted on the listing itself, and special care instructions will be shipped with your item as well.

Can I have a phrase stamped on the back of my item?

Some can! Items that can be stamped on the back will be noted on the item page. Unfortunately, due to the nature of some items stamping can only be added on one side. When stamped from the front side, the stamp causes a rise in the back and cause any stamping on the back side to be distorted.

Do you offer discounts?

Yes! With each order, we add a discount code for your next purchase. Or if you leave a review of your item, I send along a code. We also have discount offers through our Facebook and Instagram accounts--so look there too!
