Welcome to my shop!
I am single, disabled mother of 1 son and have an awesome St. Bernard who is my therapy dog! I have a genetic disease called Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome and a rare disease, Dercums Disease. Even though both diseases are very debilitating, I find crafting as a form of therapy.
I was an RN prior to becoming too sick to work and had to "retire" in 2004. I went through a period where I lost myself but one day decided to put my crafty hands to work! I had always made jewelry and cross stitch projects for my friends and family. I decided to put those skills to use and created my Etsy shop in 2013. My goal was to make some extra money to help pay my bills, pay for prescriptions and co-pays for Dr. visits. I started to realize that my love for my work developed a new feeling inside me and I realized how therapeutic this was for me. Doing all of this has saved my life! Not only do I get to use my creative skills for my customers but it takes my mind off of my aches and pains! This is a total win-win for me!
I can do most things with jewelry! There are many techniques that I can use. Personalized metal stamping, wire work, polymer clay, gemstone settings and various types of beading.
Cross stitching is very important to me as for what I make, you can treasure for a lifetime! I have 100's of patterns that are available for me to use and I just can't list them all. I can do anything from cards to bookmarks to large projects and special holidays. I do list some cross stitch items but if you are looking for something in particular that I don't have listed, please message me and we can collaborate so I can make the perfect item for you! Cross stitching takes a lot of time and patience but the outcome is truly amazing! Projects can be a bit pricey due to the materials I purchase and the time put in to stitch but well worth it when you see the final piece in person! I do offer a layaway option for items over $100.00.
I donate 15% of every purchase I receive to the EDS Foundation. This foundation is very near and dear to my heart as it helps to further advance research.
I appreciate you stopping by and looking at my products. If you are in need of something to be custom made, please send me a message and I will do my best to find what you are looking for!

I am a single mom to a wonderful son and St. Bernard! I love to make just about anything crafty, but especially jewelry and cross stitching! I am so excited to be turning my hobby into a business. I hope you enjoy everything I have listed!
Accepted payment methods
Returns and exchanges
For items going overseas, it's a good idea to add a tracking number. I know it can get a bit pricey, but I cannot replace items for free if lost in customs. I suggest paying for additional tracking on cross stitch items.
I take pictures of all of my work before being sent. If the item shows up broken or damaged then I would like a picture showing the item.
If items are not reported and pictures not shown within 7 days of receiving your package, a refund will not be given.
I would sure love to try to take care of a situation before it escalates into a case.
Any other questions or issues, please leave me a message!
Additional policies and FAQs
Being disabled, I would love to meet your deadline date but I cannot promise that it will get to you in time. I always work my hardest to make sure your item is done within the time frame you need it. I will contact you via Etsy message and email if an item goes over the shipping deadline. If you have a cross stitch item that you just don't have time to finish or even start, just ask me to stitch it for you! Prices will vary depending on stitch count.
