Twas my very favorite aunt who made me into a cat person, decades ago, with her contagious adoration for these magnificent creatures! And my earliest baby memory is of Molly and John Luke hiding under the piano despite my endless coaxing for them to come out and let me cuddle them! I never thought I could crochet a cute-enough cat, but with a little divine intervention, and a lot of inspiration from the muse, suddenly our world contains a kitty! I can barely remember my life before kitty showed up!

Do you enjoy Christmas?
Dumb question, of course you do. Whether you celebrate Christmas or just enjoy the cooler weather and friendly atmosphere there’s no denying this is an awesome season. If you’re like me you’ve watched the movie “A Christmas Story.”
One of my favorite scenes is when the dad receives his “Major Award”… The Leg Lamp! While Ralph and the rest of the neighborhood couldn’t stop staring at this lamp, mom had another idea.
We’ve added a Leg Lamp image to the mug, and added the word Fragile over the leg silhouette.

Inspired by the Harry Potter book/film series. Taken from the colors of the Slytherin House. For geekery or fashion. Fabric print comes from Spoonflower, and this version contains a satin sheen. Each piece comes in a nice box for nice packaging/easy gifting.
Growing up, I was enamored by the appearance of the well dressed man. Later on, I fell in love with rock music, art, and embracing my inner geek. Working in fashion gave me the chance to learn of different ways to express all the things that I love, and form my own ideas.
Working near the Garment District gives me easy access to materials, and help support business from the area. If the fabric is not purchased from any of the stores from the Garment District, they are purchased on Spoonflower, or on occasion, ordered on Etsy. These pieces were were meticulously selected to be a bit avant-garde, a bit classic, a bit fun, and totally unique.

Born Again Phoenix is a Veteran Owned Business stemmed from a vision that many things have more than one purpose. We chose the name Born Again Phoenix because it has meaning to our relationship, that we survived our past and are born again to see a new light. Similar to our candles that we have decided after the contents are gone should not be tossed away but born again, with a new light. The light of a candle.

Here’s a great way to keep your phone and watch organized while they charge.
If you already own an Apple watch, you know the magnetic charging dock is simple, clean, and kind of boring. We’ve added a little flair and personalization by creating this dock from 100% solid wood. We then add your stain of preference and offer free personalization (a letter, initial, etc.) by wood-burning your initial unto the piece.

Bachelor Inspired Rose Wine Glass
My one guilty pleasure is spending my Monday, watching the Bachelor, Bachelorette, or even dare I say it – Bachelor in Paradise, with a nice glass of wine by my side. And I know Bachelor-nation is out there with me, wine parties alike.
I’m an inspired closet artist who found my medium in painting wine, martini, and margarita glasses. I’ve been doing crafts since I was a kid as my mom found making crafts together was a fun activity we could share. What started with sewing and painting wooden ornaments, evolved over the years when I experimented my creativity through other materials.

Eye (yes, eye did that purposely- it means eye am speaking from a third eye frequency as opposed to “I” bc it is ego based) grew up Catholic. A few years ago eye was searching for God to help me with the depression that eye was battling. Eye began meditating and had my spiritual awakening. Eye gave up everything eye knew to give myself fully to this mission of healing others. Eye now am a reiki master (spiritual healer), meditation guide, crystal healer and more.
