My name is Diana and thank you for stopping by :) :)
Life to me is about creating. I love to make stuff, always have!
Life to me is also art. Everything I see, touch, and smell. Inspired by my senses, I make..You see it in my handmade clothing, I LOVE making clothes, specifically, hippie clothes.
My mind creates 24/7!!
Wish I could keep up!!! LOL :)
I started selling my hippie style clothes and hats in parking lots and consignment shops in the early 1990's. I made my first website to sell my clothes online in 1997. HippieClothes.com launched in 1999.
I love to sew and craft and have always made and sold/given away items for friends, family, and strangers. I started sewing in the early 1970's when I was about six years old, taught by my grandmother. Below is a picture of the first sewing machine I learned on. It is a strawberry milkshake Pink Atlas!!!
Some of my clothing I sell is also fair traded from respected, responsible people. This helps womens co-ops in India, Nepal, Guatamala, to make money to help their own families.
Much peace, ...Diana
