About My Shop:
My husband and I sell an eclectic mix of handmade and vintage goods from fine art photography to recycled paper jewelry. I have a passion for turning trash to treasures. I have a line of "JunkMail Jewels" made from folded paper - ads, brochures, used gift wrap, etc. I also use fabric scraps, hickory nuts and caps from medicine vials to create unique jewelry items. My best selling item is my VooDoo doll pincushion, created from clean used thermal underwear!
Behind the Scenes at the Shop:
My hubby and I were born busy. Neither of us can sit still without a project in our hands or on our minds. His camera and my sewing machine are faithful companions that are always close at hand. But every day brings with it the desire to create something new or try a new medium. The collection of materials, the need for work space, and our love of the outdoors has prompted us to make the move from Dallas to the piney woods of East Texas. We've spent the past year building a new home. If we ever finish laying floors, painting, welding, and unpacking boxes, we plan to ramp up the production in our studio. We'll have room for stained glass, metal work, woodwork, ceramics - who knows what else?
Tips and Tricks
- Think like a 5 year old:
- Don't be afraid to get your hands dirty
- Believe that you can do it
- Use the colors you love (not what someone tells you is "right")
- Create with the objects around you
- Look at the small stuff - the grass, the rocks, the trees, bugs! - you'll be surprised what you've been missing
