About Me

Hi everyone, I'm in my late 30s, a housewife, and mom to three girls. These days I don't craft as much as I used to. Though I do love to make magical/nature based crafty 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 love vintage! I have an Etsy shop where I sell vintage clothing (specifically sleepwear/lingerie), and some accessories and decor. If you or anyone you know, is looking to pass on/sell vintage clothing, pls feel free to message me!
I'm iso vintage ribbon and lace (any colors). I use these to package my Etsy orders, but also I just love collecting all sorts of fun, cute, and pretty trims ^^

Comment: Thanks for the spooky goodies. I especially like the little polaroid looking things. And, where did you get that bird washi you used on the envelope? I need it!

Comment: Creepy doll lol, thank you for the letter, I enjoyed reading about your personal experience and also learning of other dolls. After child’s play I stopped asking my parents for dolls, and gave mine to my cousins 😂 didn’t want to risk one moving, I’m pretty glad my kids like plush dolls, I just can’t handle realistic eyes lol

Comment: My neighborhood walls are also great sources for supplies? I had never heard of Moon Box, thanks!
Response: Oh sorry for the misunderstanding! I wrote "walks" not walls. I find lots of stuff in nature when I go out walking, even though its pretty urban where I live. Some yards have magnolia, pine, juniper, and willow trees, Whatever falls on the sidewalk I just pick up.
