Inside A Fluttered Collection!

My name is Lindsey, but my friends call me Laser Girl. I am a machinist and laser designer with A Fluttered Collection. 

Growing up in my fathers machine shop, I was in awe of the precision cuts, mathematical detail and raw smells that these machines were able to create. With my love for linear design and symmetrical detail, I took my knowledge for machining and my love for functional, natural design to create my own niche of wood cuts, specialized wedding decor/gifts and unique accessories. 

Each and every piece in my shop is created in the top floor of my historic home in downtown Cincinnati, OH with help from my two dogs, my very supportive fiance and a part time artist, Laura, who is the queen at swooping in with a coffee and exploding my world with good vibes and ideas when I am most stressed. All designs and materials are created or sourced by me, but Laura allows my mind to keep the creative juices flowing by helping with task-management and the nitty gritty detailed cleaning of all the cut wood. Long hours are spent between the two of us designing, perfecting, packaging, cleaning, shipping and taking quick cat naps with the dogs on the floor :) 
My inspiration? My father. Hands down my father. Or should I say my family. My father raised me on the power of entrepreneurship, precision design and love for the constant search of knowledge and expansion. He taught me to never ignore my instinct or deny an idea/design no matter how simple or obscure or difficult.

The best part about Etsy for myself is learning time management and discipline through my creative process. Allowing myself the time to complete orders, keep a tidy studio and create new ideas and packaging as well as allowing time to just lay on the couch or go for a hike with the dogs has been quite an adventure and a challenge. A very rewarding challenge. To know I am what keeps my business afloat. And to know every package is designed, packed, shipped and kissed by myself allows clarity and a deep sense of self-fulfillment.
