Hello my name is Christine Lam, I am the maker behind the Little Lam Crafts @thelittlelamcrafts. I am a small home base biz. I specialize in many hand sewn items.

Bright Soul Designs
Passion lies at the heart of the creative process at Bright Soul Designs, and is what fuels owner-maker Jenna Xec. Specializing in polymer clay earrings.
What sets her work apart is the intention that each piece is created with. At Bright Soul the design philosophy is about more than the the end product – it’s about the process. Working in her home studio, Jenna takes care to ensure each piece is crafted with love, compassion, and positive energy. Once a design is complete, it is named for one of the many strong women Jenna surrounds herself with and is inspired by. By setting these intentions and choosing to remain mindful of her own energy throughout the process, Jenna hopes to cultivate an experience of empowerment for the future wearer.
“My ultimate goal is for every client to feel cared for and special, because they truly are! I craft with these principles to infuse joy and positivity into the end product, and it’s my hope that my clients feel the warmth of that energy when they wear it.”

Get Stuffed WPG
This is the face behind GetStuffedWpg!
Our story is kind of an accidental one..
I had some family over for a movie night and had all these leftover snacks, and I didn’t know what to do with them! I’ve always been an avid baker, so I decided to experiment. Within a month my friends could not get enough and were placing order weekly! It just made sense to become a business and share these huge cookies with the world. Major perk of a commercial kitchen= double convection ovens! So I can put out large batches in just a couple of hours!
Super thankful for businesses like GoodLocal helping little businesses like mine connect with a much larger audience, and even accomadating same day orders! Stay tuned for the GoodLocal x Torque Market as we have some extra special products launching for it!
