Who am I?

Who's behind the "Happy Lemon"? What does Shoestrings & Lemonade do?


Isn't that the ultimate question; who am I, or why are we here? Well while I have a few theories, I cannot answer those questions. However, since your here, how about I tell you a little bit about me and how I got here.

Hi, my name is Michelle, and I am the human behind the “Happy Lemon”. I create a variety of handmade gifts and home décor items. Some of my favorite things to make include costumes, table settings, knitted hats, and accessories. I do my best to source my materials from small businesses (local when possible), and materials that are made in the USA.  


When I am not crafting up a storm, I love to create delicious treats! My baked goods and sweets are made from scratch. I provide delicious and wholesome specialties, with a focus on whole grains and natural ingredients. I make options for those with gluten intolerance and other dietary restrictions. I even make my own fondant and create all my fondant decorations by hand.


I am home based, located in Edgecomb Maine, and while I do maintain a small inventory based upon current works, most of my creations are custom orders, and all of my baking is made to order. Custom or stock, everything I create is made for your ultimate comfort and enjoyment.  I want to meet and fit into the lifestyle choices you enjoy making. If you have any questions fill out my contact form HERE.  Thanks for taking a few moments to learn a little bit about me, I look forward to creating for you soon!
