I like to get my craft on… if that wasn’t clear already.
Here’s a quick history of the shops that I currently have up and open.
2012 was an important year for me because I decided to start an Etsy shop. Up until that point, I was just crafting and crafting, but with no purpose. Starting a shop gave me a purpose and made me motivated during downtime in between college assignments and breaks.
A lot of my shop featured one of a kind clothes and accessories that I originally made for myself but never wore. Eventually it developed into a one of a kind clothing and accessory shop that featured items without the intention of making for myself. Of course I do still have my style in mind when sewing up a storm.
Fast forward to 2014 – I was majoring in illustration and started craving more illustrative work and other crafts that involved less sewing and more painting. I felt that these items didn’t fit into what I was selling on Etsy. I was all for the idea of opening a new shop, which I did on Storenvy.
When 2015 began, I felt encouraged to design more illustrations and patterns using the website Redbubble. I enjoyed having more freedom and less pressure to design without having to create the finished products themselves.
The end of 2015 into 2016 brought my mind a little elsewhere when I tried to find what to do with scraps of fabric which I really seemed to be collecting. I took interest in rag weaving and have been spending my time creating fun and one of a kind rag weave bags using these scraps and fun embellishments.
Feel free to take a browse and even make a purchase if anything tickles your fancy! It gives me an excuse to keep making.
Thanks for your support!
