Tell us about yourself and your shop I am a mother of three boys, who learn at home, and in the world around them. I have always had a huge passion for protecting the environment, as well as a disappointment in the lack of fun clothing available for boys. This combination has lead to the creation of fun, comfortable, stylish, Upcycled clothing. I mainly use thrifted t-shirts in the creation of each garment, and love combining colours and patterns, making each piece unique.  My focus goes back and forth between more feminine clothing ie ruffles ( with three boys, I need my girly fix from time to time) and a more casual look, tees, and hoodies. I also make baby booties from recycled leather, and quilts from re-purposed fabric. All in all there is a strong focus on saving the landfill from un-necessary waste, as well as creating one of a kind clothing to express individuality.

Tell us about yourself and your shop I opened in 2008 right between the births of my first and second child.
I love the personal aspect of hand stamped jewelry and the uniqueness of it being hand made.
I make hand stamped jewelry as well as pet id tags, items for men and fine silver pieces.

What made you decide to open an online shop? I wanted to do something creative with my free time at home, and the extra income wasn't half bad also.

What is your current favorite item in your shop? cuff bracelets
What is your favorite quote? In any storm, I refuse to Sink.
