Day 5 sale!
Hair accessories and holiday ornaments!
Day 1 of my seven days of sales has started! Plant Markers! Embroidered on vinyl.
Another best seller! This one is something I put together myself using a purchased design of Skeletor.
This bag is definitely a new favorite, and the two that I made sold quickly at the Flea Market last weekend!
Tell me you smoke without telling me smoke … wink wink.
Adorn your lobes with the Devil’s Lettuce!
These are machine embroidered lace pot leaves, with various bead styles to choose from.
We’ve got right-side-up marijuana leaves, and we’ve got upside-down cannabis leaves. Or you can choose from right-side-up cannabis leaves or upside-down marijuana leaves.

I love creating things on my embroidery machine. I also love the files that other people create for me to use on my embroidery machine. I have design software that I know how to use, but I love finding and using all the unique designs for purchase. I figure, if I took the time to design something from scratch, I wouldn’t be able to make as many things as I do. There’s always new designs coming out that I just would not be able to keep up with if I were designing AND stitching. I also enjoy being able to help out another small business by purchasing their design files then turning it into my own creation on my machine. I have several favorite places that I find my designs, and I have collected so many that I haven’t even sewed them all out – it would probably take me at least a year to try to do that! This is everything I’ve made in the past few months.
I haven’t even gotten to all the different breeds of dogs available for these! They are SO. FUN. And I don’t even have a dog!
These are absolutely adorable and fun to make. They help use up small bits of extra vinyl, too!
These are a little smaller than 6 x 10″ and fully lined inside.
Little Black Book
I have a few different files for these mini composition books and I just adore them. These covers make me WANT to take notes and make lists!
I love these so much. It’s just the perfect amount of attitude.
Last but not least, the latest holiday tree ornaments. The best seller for 2021 was the “Ho.” ornament! I made some explicit gingerbread people and was surprised those didn’t do as well as I thought in my quirky little bubble of people! The 2021 syringe ornament was a good one, too that I didn’t sell a ton of. But, I was also contacted by someone through my etsy that was looking for a customization. She had just had a hysterectomy and wanted to commemorate with a uterus snowflake with the year added to it. I felt so honored being able to help her create an ornament! -AN
I haven’t been very active on my own website lately. I’ve spent the last year thinking something wonderful was happening only to find out that it was, indeed, just a dream. It was a heartbreak I didn’t ask for. And so now begins yet another year of working on trust and self-worth and asking questions in my own head that probably don’t even matter, but have caused so much pain and confusion that they need to be answered. But what can ya do? You always have to be willing to take a risk, otherwise nothing good (or bad) would ever happen.
So that’s what I did with this year’s mask. I took a risk and pushed myself with it. Over the years I haven’t noticed anyone else do any kind of carving into the bisqueware although, I could be totally wrong about that of course. I think my heart was already breaking when I began my piece. If the mask itself would have broken, I wouldn’t have been surprised.
This one is entitled “Memento Mori“. Everything that I included is fragile, and it dies. The web and the spider, the red rose and the love it represents. Even our own mortality. They all eventually crumble.
This will be on display at the Fort Collins Museum of Art for the whole month of April 2022 as part of the silent auction fundraiser they hold each year.
