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, but also I just love collecting all sorts of fun, cute, and pretty trims ^^

I've recently started making charm bracelets. I use vintage and antique charms, beads, and buttons. If you have any to spare, I'd love any embellishments and findings, esp jump rings (any size, especially bigger ones), chains, and clasps.

I'm also currently iso vintage or modern children's book/fairy tales book pages (preferably ones with pictures, as opposed to only text). I'm using them in a glue book I've made.

Comment: Thank you for sharing. I love the vintage vibe of your decor. I too looked for those deer but never found them so I am jealous. Merry Christmas!
Response: Thank you for the rating and heart! I hope you can find those deer soon. If I come across any for sale again, I can definitely let you know. Another Instagrammer I follow had some of the pink ones for sale just a few days ago. But she sold out. Merry Christmas to you and your family!
