Welcome to Found and Made on Etsy

Taking big steps means taking big risks. For the first time, with a good friend’s urging, I’ve decided to release everything as the collection Found and Made on Etsy in my shop.

Everything in the collection either has been hand-made by me, is vintage and/or has a vintage element. I’ve even changed my etsy store address to my own name and closed my other store. it’s super exciting with some really big steps! I’ve spent hours working on things just for you after the kiddos go to bed. it’s such a labor of love I don’t even mind if I’m a little tired in the morning. I may feel a little tired, but I’m also really, really excited to keep working on things.

I wanted to put something out that I was proud of and that was completely me. Something I would wear everyday or have in my home. I loved being able to crochet a beautiful hat or sew clothing someone would love. The top was so fun to mix up the masculine fabric with the softness of the sweater.

It’s kind of scary to put yourself out there, but so rewarding doing it. And it is so much more fulfilling to actually just create with purpose. I hope you love it as much I as I do. It was even more fun to style and create little vignettes with all of the items and create a style for the collection.

  17. Oh my gosh, I love everything! I would seriously have a hard time deciding between several favorites.
    But I really love the key necklace a LOT!

  18. Seriously~ your work is amazing! I headed over to your site earlier today because it was mentioned on another blog and I loved the red plaid shirt that was formerly a ralph lauren long sleeved men’s shirt…it had ruffles….TOO darling!! Something I would wear!
    Wishing you much luck & success with your new creative venture!!

  19. your shop is simply wonderful, jennifer:) love the items, love the photography…congratulations! my favorite item is the sisters canvas – there is nothing like a sister…

    warm regards,

  20. Hello Jennifer! I’m so bummed we didn’t get to meet, and I didn’t get a picture of you! I sorry, I had no idea who you were! You should have spoke up and told me you are a sweet, talented artist, blogger…..you know what I mean! I had never seen your blog before, but now that I have I will be visiting often! Hopefully we will have the opportunity to meet again!

  21. What do I think? I think it is AWESOME and a fabulous idea. I am loving these “collections” because I think it is possible to see the entire style of work a person does. And I am loving yours. Of course, much has been sold since I came a day late to the party (this darn day job!)BUT I am still adoring the santos/cage dolls. Love love love them. And the necklaces made out of watches. And the upcycled sweaters- which may inspire me to get out my serger and redo some of these sweaters that must have shrunken this year πŸ˜› Bien fait, mon amie.

  22. Jen you are so talented I’m glad you are doing this… how awesome!

    And well, since you are offering the giveaway I’m going to play along….

    I like the Iam loved and the ruffles shirt!

    Best to you in your new endeavor! You go, girl.

  25. Okay, so you know I NEVER do this! But your collection is so amazing that I had to anyway. I just love it! Especially the jewelry. Adorable! And I’m a huge fan of vintage keys.

I’m so excited to see how it goes!
