Welcome to Swing Station Studio!

Hello! My name is Heather, and I am the hands and mind behind Swing Station Studio. I am new to blogging, so here it goes. I guess I'll start with the basics: I make and sew little crafts and sell them on Etsy. There's a bit more to it of course but as I'm new to talking about myself, and you're new to reading about my silly life stories, I'll keep it short for now.

I hope to use this blog to discuss new designs, funny things that I just have to share with someone (lucky you!), and whatever else I come across. I might offer some specials for my store, or do giveaways... who knows! I could just go crazy.

I recently had my first real sale (exciting!!) from someone I DON'T EVEN KNOW! That's the best part... not from someone who bought something because they know me and want to support me, but a complete stranger who found my items on Etsy and wanted one. That is amazing and I'm really not done feeling giddy yet. I did have to buy a new printer to print out the invoice, which by the way is not really that fun. Too many choices, brands, too many details that seem to have no importance. Thankfully my husband is technologically inclined, and set it all up for me while I watched and ate all the sour candies my thoughtful mother sent me (us) for Valentine's Day.

Speaking of which, does anyone else feel a sense of being jaded this year when it comes to this holiday? I guess I'm actually relieved; no pressure to have a great gift or the perfect dinner reservation. Maybe some blueberry pancakes for breakfast and homemade fish tacos for dinner. Fancy? No. Delicious? Absolutely. Being somewhat of a newlywed still (last September for us), I find myself being sappy pretty much daily, so this holiday is nothing new for us. Just an excuse to eat little foil heart chocolates, really. Not that I'm complaining about that, either.

I also love cooking and reading cookbooks, so there might be random recipes on here, as well. You've been warned.


  1. Love your stuff! I typed "Fort Collins" into etsy and your store popped up!
    Glad to see some cool stuff is coming out of Fort Collins. Also, Swing Station is my favorite bar in LaPorte.

  2. Great! I'm so glad you found me! The Swing Station is a great bar! Maybe I'll see ya around!
