Hi, and Welcome. I’ll tell you a little bit about myself. I started my business more than 20 years ago, and have loved mostly every minute of it. I was a stay at home Mom and I always did some kind of part time work – Avon, house cleaning, party plan, etc. I have always liked crafts and creating things.
So, I decided to take the plunge, and a scary plunge (to me) it was. I rented a booth at a craft mall. It was on a very small scale at first, and grew slowly into what I think was a pretty good business. I really enjoyed this business, but, don’t get me wrong, it was hard work. Plus, to work out of your home, you have to be very disciplined, which I was, and still am. Liking what you are doing makes that much easier.
I started out as a decorative painter, and branched into other areas. My love for country decorating took over, and I considered myself a “country home decor” business. In October of 2007, after being a tenant for 13 years, my favorite, and most productive craft mall closed. I was devastated, and just did not know what I was going to do. But, I believe that everything happens for a reason. So, I got over it, and decided to move on.
I had admired and was very interested in paper crafting for several years, but, never pursued it. So, I decided that’s the direction I was going to go. So, here I am, enjoying my business once again, but still not being able to give up some areas of the country home decor. So, I am now doing paper crafting, including candy wrapping for all occasions, and also continuing to market several of my home decor items.
Thanks so much for your visit and come back often.
