Thank you! It's super cute and very convenient since I can carry it when I don't feel like lugging my purse around. Thanks again! It's super durable and well made.

I can't say enough about working with Danielle. She was very helpful to work with! She helped me to customize a Journal Planner with different colors and patterns that were not shown. She was prompt at E mailing different colors and patterns that went together, to help give me ideas. I will be ordering from Danielle again in the near future!!! Thanks Danielle! 😆

What is a Sunshine Nellie?

The first name I had for my shop was Spunky Child Design. Basically named after an Art Car I owned for a couple years- "he" was named Spunker and was zebra striped with multi colored spray paint. I had bought him from a guy already painted up and LOVED that car. So, I wanted a shop name that would be a part of something I had already loved before hand. So "Spunky" began my shops name. I decided to rename my shop to make it more ME and less about the past i've enjoyed. I love sunlight and work best in the early mornings therefore-sunshine- and a few years back an old boyfriends mother started calling me "Nellie" and it has just stuck with me. So therefore- I am- Sunshine Nellie - I hadn't thought of the idea to start an Etsy shop myself, I actually (sad to admit) didn't know Etsy was a handmade outlet for other folks! One of my best girlfriends said "you should start up an Etsy shop " and took me a few months but, I did it. My first items were my handmade recipe boxes and then from then on..its blossomed. I love to sew and make things and my Etsy shop it supports my hobby because; my theory- If im going to make things as much as I do, I may as well share them with the rest of the world so I don't end up with a stockpile of things I cant use at once! Etsy shop is a hobby, not a full time job or a source of income its my hobby that feeds my desire to buy more fabric and create more things to show to the world. I hope you enjoyed my little shop story.
