This Wine is Mine!™ | modern wine glass markers

I’d like to introduce my new company, “This Wine is Mine!™.
Show off your love of wine & design with these modern wine glass markers!
Available now at my *new* Etsy shop!

The official site is coming soon.

Ever since I can remember I have MADE things. All sorts of things. I love the idea of taking something like fabric or paper and creating something out of “nothing”.

I love sewing, drawing, writing, good wine, cooking, reading and eating good food. I love to travel. I love spending time my husband and my son. My family and friends are THE most important thing in the world to me. Without them nothing would be as sweet.

“This WIne is Mine” was born from the combination of my love for wine and design. I love mixing colors and patterns and making beautiful things. I hope you enjoy them too!

{Available for wholesale too – just email me to inquire about the terms}
