Our Story

Meet the Maker

 

Hello and welcome, I'm Caitlin and I am so glad you've found my little shop! I am an Earth Warrior, Mama to a wonderful toddler, and Wife to an amazing and supportive husband. We have 3 fur babies who are all rescues, and we all live in a little bungalow in a Northern Ontario town called Sudbury. 

I have always been a creative person, although as a young child my creativity generally manifested itself through taking things apart - much to my parents' chagrin. During my high school years I enrolled in fashion and shop classes which taught me foundational skills that I have used all my life. Throughout university I found a creative outlet in the School of Dramatic Arts’ Costume Department where I assisted in making costumes and sets for plays.

As an adult I have found a passion for creating items and accessories which promote self care and sustainability. I love the endless possibilities that I can create with semiprecious gemstones and a bit of cording, and I especially love the happiness my pieces bring to others. My mother’s old sewing machine always sits on my desk. It’s a great reminder that just because something is old doesn’t mean it isn’t functional and valuable - a sentiment often forgotten. This is the machine I used when I learned to sew in high school, it’s the machine I used when I rediscovered my passion for sewing as an adult, and it’s is the machine I use for most of the sewn items in the shop!
