About Me

Smart Sassery is the shop formally known as QtsyLife. Don't worry I won't take on a symbol so you can always say my name. I will still be offering the same beautiful printables, and even more. This change gives me the opportunity to allow my personality and style to truly shine through everything I do. That has always been the dream. 

Smart Sassery is a small girl-powered shop that specializes in printables for planners of all kinds. I also carry a small collection of handmade fashion accessories. On the fashion side of our shop, you will find everything from hair accessories, to jewelry, and plenty of crocheted items to wear and use. Our hair pretties include hand-crafted items from hair bows, to headbands, as well as some carefully crafted ribbon sculptures, hair flowers, and feathers. On the planning side of our shop, you can find all kinds of printable planner stickers, page markers or bookmarks, planner charms, and soon to be a full selection of party printables. We also have a shop on Etsy as well. All of our accessories are designed, handmade, and created by myself.

As a single mother displaced due to domestic violence and suffering from
chronic illness, I had lost both my home and job. This shop was started out of
necessity and ended up teaching my daughter that anything can be done with
a little hard work. It's pretty amazing when something you have to do, like
work, ends up being a great lesson for those little eyes watching everything
you do. This reasoning made me pay very close attention to the things I was
doing with my business. I create quality hand-crafted items that are
affordable for everyone, using quality materials. I also work really hard to
leave a very small footprint in the world I share with you all, by reusing
everything I can and recycling the rest creating very little waste. I also
give back to the community by sending my creations to those in need. Every purchase made helps in that endeavor as well, so you too are giving back just by shopping. How cool is that?! I love what I do, and I love the time it allows me to spend with my daughter.

Small business supporters like you provide the magic in the world to make
other’s dreams come true. I enjoy crafting and creating things very much,
watching materials come to life in my hands is amazing. I have been a creator
in some form or another all of my life. That love for creation has blossomed to
produce a shop full of beautiful things for you, all created with love, care and a bit of sass. What I truly love creating the most is laughter and smiles, it warms my hearts to see others happy, and I really enjoy creating that happiness. My daughter often asks, "Do you notice we leave a trail of smiles everywhere we go?" I do notice, and I love teaching her that's what you leave in your path. This world needs more people and businesses that care, so I lead by example.

Please, take a look around, I hope you enjoy our creations.
