Imagine an Attic with lots of light, little green plants, and gorgeous Scandinavian furniture. Add a computer, my Hands, and me. <3
As with so many Etsy sellers, I loved making things from when I was a kid. My interests varied and included pompoms, paper mâché, sketching, calligraphy, painting, origami, duct tape projects, jewelry, etc. I was always happiest when I had something to do with my hands and I had phases and obsessions that faded in and out. I later progressed to design for a living, and now I spend most of my time designing on my computer (with what else, my hands!).
"Hands in the Attic" was named because an attic usually has lots of things, and my studio is on the top storey of my building. One day I hope to have a lovely attic with lots of light and green plants.

Frequently asked questions
Instant Downloads - How to access
All instant download items can be accessed from your Etsy account page
Make sure that you are:
✓ logged in to your Etsy account, and
✓ downloading from a desktop or laptop computer
I do not encourage you to download your files using a mobile device or a tablet.
For editable templates, they won't work on these devices.
For printable designs such as signs, downloading your files on a mobile device or tablet may reduce the quality and resolution of the files which would result in poor print quality.
Some files are zipped up and must be unzipped to use the PDF inside.
Editable Templates - How to edit
Some of the digital products in my shop are editable templates that you can edit with your own details. The process is simple and requires basic word processing skills.
To do so, make sure you are using a desktop or laptop computer, and have the latest version of Adobe Reader installed.
This is very important, because the editable templates will not work if it’s opened in another software or on a mobile device.
→ Open the file in Adobe Reader.
→ Carefully select the sample text and start typing.
→ Do not cut and paste - that can mess up the fonts.
→ Save and print.
Font size and color can be changed by highlighting the text and pressing Ctrl + E (PC) or Cmd + E (Mac). A toolbar appears to allow you to edit accordingly.
For instant downloads and templates, there is NO need to install any fonts. What you see in the sample images will be what you get.
For digital products customized by me, if you prefer that I use another font, get in touch and I will most likely be able to accommodate.
Digital printable files - No physical prints
At the moment, all products are digital, in either JPG or PDF format.
All our files are high-resolution at 300dpi. Your printing options:
→ Upload to an online printing service such as Fedex Office, or
→ Save on a thumb drive and bring it to a local print shop, or
→ Print at home, if the size is suitable.
I was notified that my item has shipped – Where is it?
As a seller on Etsy, I mark your order as ‘shipped’ when I have completed and emailed your order. You will likely receive an email notification. This can come across as confusing to some because you may expect to receive an item in your home mailbox. As my shop is entirely digital, there is no physical product sent.
Please check the email account associated with your Etsy account. You can search your email using the Etsy Order Number. If you don't find it, let me know and I will send it again.
Can you convert to a Word file or another format?
No. All digital files are in JPG or PDF format and this information is provided in the item description.
