Grab a cup of tea, pull up a chair and sit a spell with me, won't you?
My Name is Tonya and I've been designing and creating unique home decor for as long as I can remember. I enjoy crafting, floral arrangements, painting and woodworking and have enjoyed these hobbies all my life. Nothing thrills me more than to take something someone wants to throw away and make it a family treasure that will last for generations to come.
As I said in my profile I'm a country girl, born and raised to use your God given talents and you will find happiness in your heart. I've found many years of happiness creating.
My mother was an extremely creative, crafty woman. She could turn anything into a work of art, from creating all our clothing and toys to designing things to give our home a warm welcome inviting feel. I found that I too was blessed with my mothers creative talents and I found myself following in her footsteps, creating my own designs working both with the new and the old. Thus came the name "My Creations by Tonya" followed by "My Primitive Creations by Tonya.
As a kid I remember I couldn't wait to get my chores and my homework done so I could create something. Many of the beginning thoughts for creations you'll find in my store came from something I'd created for myself or my family. Such as Holiday decor, Wall and door decor and now Primitive gatherings.
I think my favorite is creating all my christmas gifts and creating things for friends and family to enjoy. There is nothing more heart warming than when someone says "That is so beautiful! Can you create one for me?" and then watching them open there special creation as a gift.
About 10 years ago I branched out beyond family and friends, and started creating and selling My Creations to the public through craft shows, local home decor specialty shops and eBay.
Today, I design and create a variety of unique creations for my customer homes and offices. But my true creating love right now is Primitive Inspired Decor.
How did I get started creating prim decor you ask?
Let me tell you the tale.
A few years ago now, my daughter Carmen decided to redecorate her home in a Primitive country theme. She was purchasing items at Antique Malls, Auctions and Flea Markets and turning the items into the most beautiful home decor accessories you have ever laid eyes on. (Fortunately for my daughter, she got my crafting genes just as I got my mothers. LOL!)
She started sharing all her new creations with me and I caught her primitive bug. She taught me how to distress and prim, and I taught her how to stain and grubby. We were a great team! Before we knew it we had her whole house decorated beautifully and I was hooked! There was no stopping me!
So I decided to share my primitive creations with everyone through eBay.
Today, my ebay store is a wonderful little primitive nook filled with a plethora of primitive goodies. From keeping shelves, Gatherings, Early Lighting and Yummy Hand Dipped spice rolled candles to ornies, bowl fillers and ragballs.
You will find everything you need to decorate your Primitive, Colonial, Farmhouse or County farmhouse home in my store.
So enjoy your tea and go take a strole threw my store.
~ Many prim blessings from my home to yours. ~
