Such a beautiful hat! I wore it to a Kentucky Derby party and everyone went crazy over it. Thank you so very much! It arrived quickly and safely as well.

About

I make things to make you smile.

I make things that make me happy; hand printed things, candles, occasionally the odd hat and zines - hopefully they will make you happy too!

I was born with hypermobility and in my teens, I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia. At 27, I gave up (normal) work as it was making my health much worse, life slowed down to a crawl and that’s when it happened; creativity swept back into my life. First it was writing, followed by painting and my mum taught me knitting and crocheting. Soon after I went to school to learn millinery. I made 100s of hats and sold them here on my Etsy shop, up until a couple of years ago when my health got worse and making hats became difficult.

In the past year or so I have been learning how to hand print and I now design and print textiles, when I am not doing that I use photoshop to create kitsch votive candles of some of my heroes.
