Professional Ice Show Skater Turns Skating Passion into Creative Craft Boutique

All of my life I have been passionate about two things: figure skating and art. Until recently, my art has always been my hobby and ice skating was my job. I am a recently retired professional ice show skater who has reversed the roles of my two passions and have made my art into my job.

Anything with figure skating on it, especially with a vintage style, is incredibly hard to find. I was so fed up trying to find anything with skating on it, so I decided to make it myself. After being in dire need of a new wallet and not being able to find one I liked, I decided I would design my own and finally have something with skating on it. The wallet turned out better than I could have imagined and I absolutely loved making it. Like the ice was a year ago, the wallet was an empty canvas waiting to be filled with expression. A friend of mine who saw my creation introduced me to and encouraged me to share my handmade fabrications on Etsy.

My shop is located in my house in De Pere Wisconsin. My workspace started as a small little table and has expanded, thanks to my husband, into “mega-desk” It has overtaken our entire downstairs. My products all have a similar vintage collage look to them. I am always looking for new materials and trying to combine as much mixed media as I can. Lace, pearls, rhinestones, and bows always make their way into my designs. Through my travels with Holiday on Ice, I have spent a lot of time in France which is where most of my inspiration comes from. There is something that is just captivating and inspiring to me about the French style.

My etsy shop is run entirely by me and all products and all of the designs and creations are my own. Life Definition is unique because although some of our pieces look very similar, there are no two exactly alike. If requested, I can make two of the same, but I have never had any requests for that. Every design like every person is different. I work with customers and try to get to know them and their style to make sure that any custom orders shows exactly who they are. Our customer service is special because I am willing to work with the customers to make each order unique to them and work with them if it is a gift or if they need it by a certain date. The customer tells me what they want, and I do everything I can to make that happen.
