what customers are saying...

Jess | Salt Lake City, UT

"I received a set of coasters and a matching tray as a house warming gift for my first solo apartment. What a good gift!!!! I never knew how bad I needed/ wanted them until I had them- I seriously use them every day. They look and work great on my ottoman and add that extra color I needed in my living room. 10/10 for functionality, looks, and quality!"

Simone | Wisconsin Dells, WI

"Just would like to give a shoutout to Kennedy for the amazing job that she does with all of her pieces! I recently had her make necklaces with school colors as well as a 2018 plate to go on the necklace as graduation gifts. They turned out better than I ever could have hoped for. Thank you so so much Kennedy! I look forward to doing this again next year ☺️☺️"

Kaitlyn | Elk River, MN

"I ordered custom shot glasses and they turned out AMAZING! I love them for all of my friends back at school. They were done fast and in amazing quality. I highly recommend her products! Worth every penny!"
