Hi there, and welcome to The Handmade Hollow- I’m so glad you’re here! My name is Mercedes (no car jokes PLEASE) but I go by Sades, Sadie and Mama. I am so proud to call Canada home and live in a small town with my partner, our daughter and our mischievous cat, Bean.
I have always had a passion for making (often messes) and cannot wait to finally share my creations, tips and tricks with you as I go along. I refer to myself as a “niche-less” maker- I like to do it all! Sewing, quilting, paper craft, vinyl, SVG making, polymer clay… if you can name it, I’ve probably done it. I have started and stopped a blog so many times before, but finally feel confident enough to put this out in the world… kinda, so please be gentle.
There is something magical about creating items for others and yourself. Whenever you see them, you’re filled with a sense of pride and accomplishment- they become not just things but artefacts.
I hope to make a mess so you won’t have to and bring you the best tips for hot projects and DIYS. I will take on commissions here and there and have an Etsy shop you can check out!
Words to live by. “Let all that you do be done in love”. My goal is to create a space of love and security for anyone who happens to come along. Let’s create some everyday magic.
I am SO glad you are here,
