Welcome to a world of dragons and faeries and fantasy. Stepping into the shop of Things'nStuff , you will find all kinds of magical creatures, pixie hoodies, and even OOAK artwork . This is a whole family of crafters. And how many of us can say this- "All items are original designs that are ecologically sustainable. The materials that we use are salvaged, reclaimed, or obtained at the thrift stores to be recycled. Our goal is to leave little impact and recycle and reuse goods to make enjoyable things 'n' stuff." What a great attitude to have toward our Mother Earth. I just had to find out more about this amazing family. Read on:

What is your favorite item in your shop? I don't have a favorite item...And so once again, I have spent hours trying to decide which item I liked the best. I picked "Pegasus" as I have always been fascinated with them.
What inspires you to create? Nature, and my boys inspire me to create. I could be washing dishes, or going to the bathroom(lol) and ideas come to me. Sometimes its hard for me to turn off the ideas.

And do you have any inspirational advice for other artists? I think by being open to the Universe, they ideas will come. Its hard sometimes to choose the right one to pluck out and create. Keep on trying, thats what I do.

Do you create in more than 1 medium? Its hard to stick to just one Medium. I love to sew, create with wool (needle and wet felting), Clay is very satisfying. I also paint and carve gourds, I haven't put any of them on etsy yet. My Husband and Partner Brandon, works with wood. He also is very talented in electronics and uses them to make unique toys.

If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you choose? And why? Thats a hard Question, I love Oregon its such an unique place. I've longed to go to south America. I could see my Family and I living in a mud house(earth ship) with a Big Garden being sustainable, Crafting. Oregon, South America, maybe I could have a home in both. Winter in South America, and back to Oregon in the Summer and Fall.

What is your favorite food? I love Mexican and Chinese food and Sushi Rolls.

Favorite animals? mountain lions, unicorns.

Favorite colors? are Blue, Green, and Purple

Do you have a favorite quote you'd like to share? Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new....Albert Einstein AND this one: Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony....Mahatma Gandhi

Thank you so much thingsinstuff for taking time to do this interview. Be sure to visit their fantasy filled shop where you may find a treasure waiting just for you.
