About ThistlewhiteDesigns

Sales 1,131
On Etsy since 2015

I just want to make pretty things.

I’m Annica Anderson, the designer + maker behind Thistlewhite Designs. My husband and I live in Kansas City and LOVE IT. My background is in graphic design, and I’ve worked in the Kansas City area for a few years now. But after being laid off, I found myself with an excess of free time and a shortage of creative outlets. So, as I often do to satisfy my creative itches, I started crafting.

I made myself a felt flower wreath, hung it on my door, and posted a picture on Insta. Before I knew what was happening, I had so many of my friends and family commenting on the post telling me how much they loved it. So I posted again, saying it was available for purchase if anyone wanted one. I thought at best it would give me something to do (which I desperately needed), and maybe bring others joy to have a wreath of their own. After weeks’ worth of orders, and friends of friends reaching out, I thought I might just be on to something.

Thus, Thistlewhite was born. I’ve always loved making beautiful things for people I love, and it’s incredibly humbling to see the response from my community! I never would have made the leap if it weren’t for so many people - friends, family, even strangers - telling me I should just do my own thing. It's changed from this little project I started to keep myself sane into something so much bigger than myself. And even though it's just me, crafting away while I binge New Girl for the umpteenth time, it feels like something that belongs to the community. It feels like something much bigger than me that I get to be a steward of.

Shipping

I ship using USPS, and I package all my products very carefully, in sturdy cardboard boxes and well-padded to prevent any damage during shipment. Some bending may occur during shipment, but this is normal. Don't be afraid to gently bend stems, leaves, or petals back into shape. Your forever flowers will be back to their perky selves in no time.

Please allow 3-5 business days for smaller items, and 5-10 business days for larger items for me to craft your custom felt florals. I'll ship your order as soon as it’s done! After shipment, you can expect it to take about 4 days to reach you.

Additional policies and FAQs

I'm more than happy to create custom pieces for you or your loved ones. Just send me a convo with details about desired size, color, and any specific flower varieties, and I'll reply promptly with pricing and timeline. I'm usually able to have a custom order shipped within 5-7 business days.
