A modest intro

Hi, I'm Alex and I, as per usual have been over thinking.

I know this is just another blog in a sea of a trillion but I've rough drafted more than several "First Posts" as if my very life and credibility depended on it and in the end...it's just another blog in a sea of a trillion. And so like many "firsts" in life I'm just going to get it over with. :)

This is my family.

My husband, Ben, who brings home the bacon and our two beautiful offspring/partners in crime/comedy duo, Zoe, 5, and Jaida, 4, who keep me laughing and who ground me to what is really important in this world.

Everything I do is for these three humans. The loves of my life.

This month marks my one year anniversary as a seller on Etsy and even though my time is always constrained, I figured I could at the very least use blogging as a way to let my sweet customers get a sneak preview of products before shop updates! Also, I really wanted to have a place to go and just talk about non-work-related stuff, vent about things, talk about my kids, post about current favorite Etsy offerings, movies, books, so here it is...my official outlet.


  1. yeah, there's a sea of trillions, but i only keep track of a few at a time and i'm so happy to add yours to it. i look forward to seeing previews of your "maked goodies"... how cute is that. ;)

  2. Awww, thanks so much Michelle! I really don't have any blogs that I go to on a regular basis (only because of time issues) so I'm not even sure how to "blog", so let me apologize in advance for future bad grammar and witless posts. I wondered if anyone would visit so thanks so much for stopping by! :D

  3. Welcome to blogging:) It is indeed a wonderful world of making friends too:):)

  4. You're so pretty :) Your little dolls too!

  5. Kala thanks so much for the warm welcome! I've made some of the greatest friends from etsy and Flickr and would love to make more through blogging!

    Adeline, thank-you so much for your sweet comment from me and my dolls! You made someone blush! :)

  6. I love your shop and I adore your light pull. Too cute! Thank you for introducing yourself and your blog on my thread in the forums. It's so nice to meet you.

    warm wishes...

  7. Hi,
    So delighted to have found your blog today!!! This IS a "wunder"!!! I just wrote a post on you and Erica Daley. (thus finding your blog) I first met Erica and She linked me to you...way last December. I love your work, I can hardly stand it! They are so adorable. Those petit knit/crocheted hats!!! I love it all and wish you continued success!

    With Kindness,

  8. Hi Mary! Erica is a sweetheart isn't she? Thanks you so much on your kind words about my work, I really try hard to make special things that people (and their little ones) can enjoy! Thank-you so much for your encouraging words!
