Letting my quirkiness show

For years I have been considering starting a home business, creating something that I could sell while staying home with my children. I start projects all the time, but things never seemed to come together to put any of them in a shop. But in 2014 I suddenly found myself in the midst of four craft projects at once, all of which shared an aesthetic and were something I thought people would like. I decided that if I waited until I was “ready” I would never get started, so I took the plunge and opened the HousePunkery shop.

HousePunkery showcases a wide variety of looks that appeal to me, from steampunk to geek chic. I am always making diy crafts at home and seem to find a way to apply my offbeat nature to anything. I have channeled this creative energy into a shop filled with eclectic items. I hope you enjoy!

I LOVE to make this stuff and I thrive on helping people, if you would like something custom made just let me know.

The littles help with various tasks. These jobs include pulling things from the printer and running off with them, grabbing the super fine glitter tube and hiding somewhere with it, and applying glitter liberally to small items.


Linda is a member of the family and helps to make many of the creations featured here. She contributes when designing new items, helps with tasks such as painting frames, and is the main assistant at craft fairs.
