Working Hard on What You Love is Never Really Hard Work
I suppose I've always been a crafter. I crafted for years, thinking I could never actually sell what I made, even though I got profuse compliments, and branched out successfully into more and more crafting media.
Then at a certain point, it was too much to keep, and not enough people to give away to, and maybe other people would like it, and hey why not, and I'll give it a try, and I'll set up a booth at this local show, and then the next thing I knew I was in neck deep...and I liked it!
Maintaining a shop is way more work than I expected, but it's the kind of work that I really like to do. I may be a masochist, but I can't abide by idle hands, so the opportunity to fill my free time (I do have a day job) with such rewarding work is incredibly valuable to me.
As I've mentioned, I've made a huge variety of crafts. I've chosen to sell embroidery because of its diversity. Embroidery allows me to design something very specific and unique, and it gives me unbounded opportunities for creativity.
I can be inspired by almost anything. I try to keep an eye on trends, but I'm pretty picky about what I like. I certainly never make something just because it's trendy. If it's in my shop, it's something that I would be proud to own, display, or give as a gift myself.
As may be apparent, I'm particularly inspired by small furry animals. I can't resist a good squee-worthy creature. That said, I try to keep some diversity in my shop. When I'm trying to think of new ideas, I think of all the gift-giving opportunities I have throughout the year. I love giving gifts, and I love them even more when they're personalized. My products are designed to make people happy and appeal to them personally. Since I don't know the recipients, I both provide a wide variety of products and accept custom orders, so I can help you personalize a gift for someone special.
In the future, I'll be expanding into more and more areas with embroidery. This medium has no limits to me, and I'm excited for the future.
Stop on by my shop and take a look, I'm happy to present my wares to the whole world!

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders
For custom orders, there will be a design approval process. We will conduct the approval process through Etsy conversations. Each draft of the design will be sent to you within 2 business days. Once you approve a design, I will provide you with a specific shipping estimate for the finished product.
Please allow additional time for custom items. In addition, custom items cannot be returned and will incur a slightly higher shipping price as they will include shipping insurance.
Display embroidery hoops in dry indoor spaces. If your item gathers dust, simply use a lint roller to remove the dust. Keep the hoop away from splashes or areas where it could get dirty. If your item should attract a splash or spot, blot the spot with a damp towel and mild soap to remove.
