Jane Austen, journaling, art, scrapbooking supplies, literary adventures and vintage beauty - all in one place? (What could be better?)
...a delightful shop full of whimsy and literature. I positively cannot get over how much I adore the style of the items - just the right mixture of shabby chic and romantic elegance.
- How did you get started with your crafting/artwork/shop?
"I have been making things for a very long time. I was a theatre major in college and loved making period costumes. I think some of my millinery work with flowers led me to love anything pink and pretty. I made band boxes and ribbon rose pins many years ago for craft shows. I also made collages from paper and ephemera but switched to digital when I discovered Photoshop."
- What is your favorite Jane Austen book? (and why?)
- What inspires the items in your shop?
"I am a reader. I also write a little and have had some stories published. I do a little bit of everything ... knitting, gardening, baking. Right now, my Etsy shop is taking all of my free time, but I love it!"
Lovely little tags!
Mm. I have to say that my favorite items in the shop are always the journals....
Art journals - all you'd need for an instant gorgeous memory/scrapbook
would be a few good photos, and a few handwritten notes....
I can just see several of these being a perfect way to keep memories of reenactments and dances!
