Hello and welcome to the Shoppe! My name is Cindy and I'm a happily married Mum of 3, a puppy Mum to the best dog in the universe, and a proud Canadian!
Crafting has always been in my life in some shape or form. I remember sitting in front of a sewing machine during my Grade 7 Home Ec class and I loved watching my tote bag and skirt projects come to life. I proudly wore that skirt to school one day - even though it was an atrocious neon pink nightmare. I didn't care - I loved it!
Fast forward to my University years and into my second year where my "University Mum" dabbled in everything crafty and showed me the ways of cross stitching. I still have some of her cross stitch patterns that she gave to me. At the time though, books, studying and the pub/social life took over so I didn't have too much time to devote to crafting until after I graduated. Over time, I added knitting/crocheting, scrapbooking, and card making into my crafty world.
In 2017, I decided to take the plunge and open an Etsy Shop for handmade greeting cards. This gave me an excuse to craft day in and day out and, the extra funds fuelled my crafting expenses. As business grew, I decided to dust off my sewing machine to expand my product offerings and, to nurture my fabric obsession because why not right?
Most days, you'll find me in my craft bunker, with a snoring dog at my feet and I couldn't be happier :)
