Introducing....Crayv'n on Etsy!

Well I finally did it!  I post items for sale in my Etsy store.  I started this store 2 years I was not procrastinating....things just happened.

I've been in the fashion industry on and off for the past 6 years.  I worked an internship with Manuel Mendoza during my 3rd year in Fashion Design School, learning bridal couture techniques.  My eventually dream when graduating from University was to open my own bridal design store.  Manuel was a fabulous teacher, and fun person to be around and work for.

We moved back to my home town of Quesnel, BC, where I promptly opened up Crayv'n Designs.  I started small, creating a few pieces for a bridal fashion show and before I knew it, I was up to my ears in commissions.   2 years later I had to close my doors and follow the husband up north to Alberta.

It was a sad day.

Since then I have been dabbling here and there.  There wasn't a whole lot of space available in Fort Mac, so my sewing took a back seat.  It;s a bit to stressful to sew at the kitchen table when I have 8 little paws with chocolate and mud and who knows what else on them.

Now I've moved to place that has ample space and have started up again.....Looking forward to new beginnings and wonderful creations.  Don't forget to check out Crayv'n on a regular basis to find beautiful hand made items.



  1. Yay! I'm so excited for you, and your new beginning. I can't wait to see all of your wonderful creations! It makes me so happy to see you inspired again. Your talent is too beautiful to let it go to waste.

  2. They look lovely, well done for getting it up and running. I really should add new stock to mine.
