About Vintagemomcreations

travis-and-bella-small.jpgI have always been a “maker”. I love to create and do it daily.

 In the eighties it was dried flowers.. I mean dried flowers EVERYWHERE. In wreaths.. in vases, Well, you get the idea.

Then came the candles. I poured candles into every available glass or metal container. I created my own molds. I burned my fingers and gave everyone candles.

And today, here I am. I have worked with woods and beads and gems and glass. I’m having a wonderful time.

Vintagemomcreations came to be out of love.

You see, June of 2006, my daughter Isabel was born with Down’s Syndrome. Leaving me no choice as to whether I could go back to the workforce. In my mind, I need her to be able to communicate with me before I could possibly leave her and go off to make money. Therefore, I decided to do something I love.. CREATE. Vintagemomcreations and my shop http://vintagemomcreations.etsy.com  is allowing me to be home to mold and shape and love my children.. and still mold and shape and create beauty that I can offer to you. Soo.. In a nutshell.. That’s my story.

Pictured are my son Travis age 19 and Isabel

    I have fallen in love with your creations in your Etsy shop. I have a couple of questions before I order. I noticed that several pieces have been named from the language of the Cherokees. Are you of Cherokee heritage? I teach special children on the Qualla Boundary of the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians; that’s why I’m curious. The second question is this? Do you make any of your bracelets for larger women? My wrist is enough larger than “normal” that the standard size fits tightly if at all. I would love to have one of your bracelets, but it would have to be longer. Please let me know if you can help me with this.

    It sounds like you have two children to be proud of!

    My best to you and your family,
    Kathleen

    Hi
    I stumbled into your blog today. WOW your daughter is beautiful. Well so is the solider and the older daughter, but it was Isabel that drew me in. My son Riley just turned two and has Down syndrome as well.

    I love your creations that you have pictured. I’ll be sure to check back to see when you update your Esty site.

    Happy Holidays
    Mary
