I first started making upcycled goods a number of years ago because I simply wanted to create. I had always wished I grew-up in one of those families that made their own clothes… or spent my summer days at my grandmother’s heels as she taught me the wise old ways of the handmade world. I was in awe of people who could make things. Then it dawned on me… why can’t I do it too? I decided to buy myself a sewing machine (used of course) and simply have a go. Next, a friend showed me the basics of knitting, I checked-out crochet books from the library, watched “how-to” videos online and I was on my way! Eventually I started to build up quite an inventory of my finished projects that I didn’t know what to do with; thus became the birth of this website.
I make these products from mostly upcycled, recycled, and repurposed materials. Ideally I would like to use 100% upcycled materials, but sometimes that is just not feasible. My primary source of materials comes from thrift stores, followed by donations, scraps leftover from previous projects and items that I already have in my possession. While the raw materials may come second hand, they are laundered (when applicable) and come from a smoke and pet free environment… so have no fear! Second-hand goods are just as nice (if not better) than newly purchased ones!!
I love experimenting and trying new projects, and I strive to offer as wide a variety of items on my website as possible. Please check back with me frequently, as I plan to update my inventory as fast as my little fingers can work. All of my items are made with enthusiasm and joy, and I hope you will love them as much as I do. I am honored that you have stopped by my lounge. Feel free to stop by anytime.
