About Me

Hi everyone, I'm in my mid 30s, and stay at home mom to three girls. These days I don't craft as much as I used to. Though I do love to make witchy/nature based items in the Fall and Winter. Sometimes I do ATCs, deco books, visual journals, altered matchboxes, and stamp carving. In the past, I used to sew, knit, and crochet. I'm currently learning how to sew clothing, especially vintage styles.

I love vintage! I have an Etsy shop wear I sell vintage clothing and accessories. Currently I'm iso any vintage sewing notions like buttons, zippers, hooks and eyes, elastic, etc. Also vintage ribbon and lace (any colors). I destashed a ton of old lace, and now that I've found a use for them, I'm needing a variety and lots of it.

Comment: Thank you for sharing your collection with me! The mermaids are very cool but I find the crystals more fascinating. Maybe that's because I collect them too! (; You have some very cool pieces in your collection and I'm glad you were paired with me because I really loved seeing them and knowing someone else on here has a thing for them too. Thanks again! <3
Response: Oh cool! I'm happy to know another collector ๐Ÿ˜ƒ I'm glad you enjoyed the swap. Thank you for rating and the heart!

Comment: WOW!!! I love the idea of the test tube Maypole! The whole thing is just gorgeous! How do you come up with these ideas? Fabulous!!
Response: Thank you! I once purchased some bath salts and the seller had them sent in a test tube, so I started using that idea when I made mine. I toyed with the idea of making a maypole, but I had never made one before, and I worried how I was going to assemble it and package it to mail. Then I just thought, the test tube is pole-like in shape. Why no wrap some ribbons around it โ˜บ

OMGoodness! You are the sweetest! The RAK Halloween goodie bag you sent me is the cutest. I love the kawaii stickers soooo much. The washi is very pretty. I'm super excited about the needle book, too. I'm always losing them. I like to use them when I'm traveling with a project. It was so nice of you to think of me. I never expected you to send me anything for angeling. It was mighty awesome of you though. Thanks a million! <3
