About

The little things that make you happy.

Hello beautiful people!

My name is Dana and I like to make people happy. :)

There is always comfort to be found in something you find enriching and cathartic-- something that makes you feel like you are home. Art is one of those things, it's liberating yet hard work and when you finally finish a project, you made something new!

I created trinkets during my freshman year of college to maintain a balance between my academic and personal life. I took art electives throughout all of grade school and felt so withdrawn from creativity during college. I set sail on this etsy adventure and loved viewing and making handmade finds. I couldn't stop and I eventually started seeing trinkets as a small business rather than just a happy past time.

"trinkets" came from two ideas. At first, I wanted to make absolutely everything. I was making greeting cards one day and earrings the next. I couldn't peg myself down to one craft and quite frankly, didn't want to. So I thought... hey... trinkets! That's perfect. A little bit of this and that!

My life philosophy is that it's the little things that make you happy. Little things in life can be anything from the daily things we tend to overlook to little knick knacks that bring us joy like cards or dainty accessories. And that's when I realized that the word "trinkets" meant a lot to me and my shop's philosophy.

I love collaborating with customers and other shops in building a supportive artistic community online. It's wonderful! Thank you to everyone who has supported me along the way and continues to today. I have met so many genuine people through etsy and it has helped me grow tremendously as a business woman, artist, and person. <3

Cheers,
Dana
