My New Creative Outlet

I have recently become obsessed with Etsy, an website specializing in all things handmade and vintage.  You can buy and sell things and I love it!  For our 3 year anniversary in May I gently recommended a few items to Jeremy that I liked.  I now own 3 jewelry items from different sellers and I love them!  I also have a custom ring being made using an opal I bought in Australia.  It is on the way and I can't wait to get it! Here is the shop I ordered it from. 

With my shopping history now on our blog, I will get to my point. 

I have opened my own shop on Etsy!  anmd is my new creative outlet.  At the moment I am focusing on embellished jackets using 2nd hand jackets, scrap fabrics from the many sewing shops here, and a few extra appliques.  I had a favorite jacket that was similar to these that I wore holes into and I thought I could possibly make someone their favorite jacket.  So that is what I am trying.  My skills are growing and so is my collection.  I can also make a custom jacket for you if you would like different colors or styles.  I plan to expand it to other items for the home but I have not gotten there yet.  So check me out and place an order through my shop if anything suits your fancy!  Any feed back would be great too!

Happy Shopping!
