About Me

Hi everyone, I'm in my mid 30s, a homemaker, 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'm currently learning how to sew clothing, especially vintage styles.

I love vintage! I have an Etsy shop where I sell vintage clothing (specifically sleepwear/lingerie), and some accessories/decor. Currently I'm iso any vintage sewing notions like buttons, zippers, hooks and eyes, elastic, etc. Also vintage ribbon and lace (any colors). I use these to package my Etsy orders.

Comment: I'm embarrassed to say that I only just found this swap while rearranging furniture (it had fallen behind a cabinet). I had completely lost track of it somehow, and I feel absolutely terrible about that! Thank you so much again for the beautiful things you sent me. I love the sweet little tin with puzzle, the beautiful vintage papers and photo, and the lovely embroidered and lace hankies. Everything is loved and will be cherished. Thank you for being so wonderful!

Comment: This was probably the best swap I have received in like 2 years! It was so much fun to open and had such fun items! I love the stamps and fabric and goodies. I plan to use the fabric to make my baby a cute pocket :) Thank you!!! I really love your carved image too! Maybe we can private swap sometime :)
Response: I'm so glad you liked the items! I really try to send quality swaps that I would like to receive myself :) Sure! I'd love to swap sometime in the future. Atm I'm trying to be conservative with my swaps. But I'll definitely message when I'm ready. Have good weekend, and thank you for the quick rating and heart!
