About the Owner/Small Business Ninja/Creativity Guru
I'm a right-brained mom, wife, middle school architecture/engineering teacher, and a web-based entrepreneur with a not-so-hidden crafty side :) I love to be creative in my "free" time when I'm not busy taking care of my family, grading, or running my shops here and on Etsy.
My husband jokes that I have a hobby addiction, and he might be right! I have been creating and crafting for as long as I can remember. My mother encouraged my creativity from the start, even going so far as to volunteer to help start an art program in my tiny elementary school. With her help and a few sewing lessons from my grandmother, my skills and my projects have gradually grown from macaroni necklaces and friendship bracelets, to Halloween costumes and prom dresses, to high quality bags, wire wrapped jewelry, paper crafts, digital designs, and other unique handmade gifts. Making beautiful things with my own two hands allows me to really appreciate the materials and the medium I'm using. It lets me step out of my "mommy shoes" and leave my incredibly over-planned teacher side at school so that I can relax and focus on my remarkably less organized (and far more fun) creative side.
I used to think that my homemade gifts were just a fun excuse for me to be creative and crafty until my friends and family started coming to me asking me to make gifts for their friends. Strangers were complementing them on the gifts they gave and the jewelry I made and asking what store it was from! Soon enough, my friends began to encourage me to open a shop so they could tell people where they could buy my handmade creations and designs. My fun little hobby is blooming into a small, but growing business, and I couldn't be more excited!
