WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO START YOUR BUSINESS?
Arts and crafts has always been a passion of mine since I was a little girl, knitting and crocheting with my Grandmother, sewing and quilting with my mother. Then 22 years ago when I was pregnant with my 2nd child and worked full time, we were struggling with the best option for daycare for our two girls. My husband suggested that I leave my job and stay home with them. I started researching different venues that offer arts and crafts throughout the year instead of just during the holiday season. Well, I left my job and started doing crafts at home while being with our children. We now have 3 wonderful girls, ages 26, 22 and 20 years old.
I have ventured out in many different areas throughout the years, doing craft shows on the weekends, wholesale, gift shows, etc. Then the internet came along and opened a whole new world of networking.
This last September my oldest daughter got married, and while helping her plan her wedding I began designing and making custom Wedding Boards. This has been so much fun creating custom signs for Brides helping to make their Wedding Day unique.
WHAT INSPIRES YOU TO KEEP ON CHUGGING?
I love and enjoy the feedback I get from my customers on how much they enjoy my work and that I offer a high quality product at a price everyone can afford. They tell me that as soon as you categorize and item “Wedding” the price seems to sky rocket. I offer great prices and have made their wedding day personal with a custom sign.
Crafting is my way to escape the world, my stress release. I seem to go to my own little place for peace.
WHAT IS THE BEST PART OF YOUR JOB?
There are so many….
Being able to be home with my children as they were growing up, being able to participate in their school functions, and trying for the Best Mom Award has been the Best Part of my Job.
I also love creating and designing items for people all over the world. Chatting with them in emails, and then when I have the idea of what they are dreaming of, I get busy designing. I send a proof of the design I have worked up, and when they reply with “That is just what I wanted”,it makes my day.
WHAT MAKES YOU SPEECHLESS?
Wow, that one is easy. My beautiful family. I have a wonderful husband of 27 years, who puts up with all of my “crafting” stuff. My 3 wonderful daughters, and sometimes….. ya sometimes they just leave you speechless. I truly have been blessed.
IF YOU WERE A SUPERHERO, WHAT KIND OF SUPERHERO WOULD YOU BE AND WHY?
I have never really thought of myself as a Superhero, but, from time to time my daughters call me Super Woman, because they think I can do anything. Little do they know, there are things I can’t do, but we will keep that a secret.
