Our store is a collective between two best friends who have known each other since middle school. We love music, playing instruments and singing, cooking with friends, TV show marathons, laughing at stupid jokes, and most of all art projects! We created this store as a way to showcase our projects and art. The two of us enjoy getting crafty together and decided it was time we share it with the world.
We both have very different styles but compliment each other in the best of ways. Aj being more organic and detail oriented and Tasha more experimental and eccentric, we have a wide range style for many to connect with. We wanted to be a collective because we believe in a communal way of business, sharing it together to create stronger connections with customers. We want you to feel like you are receiving a gift from a close friend, like it was handcrafted for only you and it’s one of a kind. We bring our heart and soul into each piece of art because we know that kind of care can be felt by the true owner as they enjoy their special find. Every piece in our store is inspired by you, a beauty in each its own special way! A genuine original!
