About

Thanks dad. I am forever grateful.

I'm an everyday Jane with possibly one exception. That will come a bit later.

As with the majority of shop owners on Etsy I come from a family of crafters, artists, knitters, sewers. My earliest recollection of sewing was when I was five or six....making clothes for my Barbie dolls whom, if I had kept them, I'd have a few dollars more in my bank account today. Furniture for my Barbie Dream House was made from cardboard and jar lids. Barbie’s were my life for longer than I’ll ever tell you. Moving on…..As a lifelong seamstress, much of my wardrobe consisted of clothing I made myself.

Grandmothers...mother....sisters.....we all created things. And even though we all created many different things we each found a specialty at which we excelled. Take a guess with mine...yep, sewing.

Here’s the crazy part: My professional career paths were left brain all the way:
• Quality assurance and inspection of laser systems built for the military
• Quality assurance, technical writing, and document control in the semiconductor industry
• Surgical technologist

Have you ever taken one of those quizzes that show if you are predominantly left-brained or right-brained? What are you? Is your work along that side? I don’t have a predominant side….I straddle that fence man. Every quiz ends up like that. My creative and logic thought processes are pretty much neck and neck. I’m as interested in the circuitry of a semiconductor chip as I am in sewing a passport cover out of felt.

Here’s where it all comes together: Etsy….It’s not only a creative shop….It’s a business of my own. The creative and the logic have a place to live together. What can I make? What colors or fabrics or designs? How can I make a production line? Where can I find the cheapest but well made piece parts? Normal people would call that zippers, thread, and fabric. And so on…

There is a ton of thought and time put into everything I make. It always starts with brainstorming where no idea is out of the question. In the end the detail has to be there. The quality most certainly has to be there.

I also am the daughter of an entrepreneur father. Dad started with his own pest control business, then went on to own franchises in Sonic Drive-Ins, owned a couple of donut shops, and then owned several pizza and sub sandwich shops. He instilled the mindset of business ownership. Making your own way in this world. Make your own money. Hire a CPA, not a bookkeeper. As I write this I have to include that I lost my dad not quite a month ago. He is how I got here. Thanks dad....and thanks for your belief in me and my dream. You rock!!

Shop policies

Last updated on December 4, 2015
Welcome to my shop. To create things people want to buy is a dream come true. Everything is very well made; the design picked at until it meets my quality and usefulness standards. My shop policy is pretty much "keep it simple". I'll get your purchase in the mail pretty dang quick once payment is confirmed.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Returns and exchanges
You gotta be a happy camper. And if you're not I'll make it right whether its a refund or a product exchange. All refunds will be the purchase price minus shipping charges. Email me please! I live for you're satisfaction!
Payment
Payment is due within 48 hours of selection. After that time I'll have to cancel your order. PayPal works for me but of course you can use your own credit card through the instant checkout.

If you have to cancel or...gasp...decide not to buy....no worries. Just shoot me an email. It's all good.
Shipping
Pretty much all options the USPS has to offer....first class, priority, priority express, and international options. If another method suits you better please let me know as I'll accommodate your needs anyway I can.

Buying more than one thing? Nice! I'll sweeten the pot and cut the shipping fee after the first full-rate purchase.
Additional policies and FAQs
Happy customers are the name of my game. I want you to come back to my shop. I want you to spread the word of my fantasticness to everyone you know. Please allow me to earn that privilege from you.

sheislivinoutloud is not going to center around one type of product. My ADD flag is flying at full staff. To that end, when I introduce something new I'd like to send you an email so that you can take a look and say, "Heck yeah, I need that man!"
I promise with all that is important to me that your email address will be kept confidential, will never ever be sold, and your box will not get filled with doo doo. Once I have you hooked, I never want to lose you for any reason.
