Working hard on snowmen, while watching a design show, for inspiration!
Received this sweet photo from a client of the Snow Wishin' snowman she bought from me last year, on display in her home. Love It!!! So much fun seeing people enjoy my work.
Winter is finally here in Charlotte, North Carolina. It is supposed to go down to 19 degrees overnight. Brrrr! Maybe we'll get to build a real snowman like these this year!

About

It started at a young age....

I've been painting, drawing, gluing, cutting, sewing and generally making "stuff" ever since I can remember. My parents have always wondered where I get my creativity from because they are not artistic at all. My husband lovingly calls me "Elf".

I've been crafting a selling my wares off an on for over 25 years, although always part time. I've mostly sold through local shows, friends, family, and co-workers, and have now opened up to the online world. I had another website for a few years, and in January of 2012, decided to move to Etsy!

While I always like to try new things, I always gravitate towards snowmen, my favorite Christmas/Holiday related character. Everything here is entirely handcrafted and brought to life by my hands. You should be a fly on the wall of my craft room sometime. I giggle and laugh out loud, a lot, as I put the finishing touches on my creations.

I've recently discovered the world of felting, and I think I'm in love! While I have hand-knit, and felted handbags for several years, my recent introduction was to nuno, wet, and needle felting. I see a serious addiction problem in the not too distant future. Hopefully my fans will benefit! There's just not enough time in the day to do everything I'd like to do!

After years of making "other's" designs, I am finally spreading my wings and creating some my own original designs. Just you wait and see.....they're gonna be FUN!

Frequently asked questions

Why doesn't my item look exactly the same as the item in the photo?

Every item in my shop is handmade, and no two are exactly alike. While I do attempt to photograph every individual item I make, please allow for slight variances from the item pictured. Also, colors may vary slightly as every computer monitor or cell phone screen may vary in color.

Gift wrapping and packaging

Every item is packaged with great care. I try, whenever possible, to use recycled packing materials, including but not limited to boxes and packing paper.
