Hi from my handmade world
The things HANDMADE that you do need should be simple, elegant, functional, lovely ,durable and beautiful.
There is a story behind every piece that I make.

My handmade work is like a painting - an experience in color, images, composition and text. It is a personal narrative, to be complied with by individuals! My hope is, that it could make a difference - that it may affect your enjoyment of life.

My dreams is started with etsy at 50 m2 small flat , every time I said our living space is small but my dreams , my hard is bigger than this space ,
As a little girl, I was drawing, painting and making doll clothes. I like to take photographs, cook and draw,travel,read,dance and write.
What started as a mere hobby (the embroidery, wood and glass painting works) moved to a new level after the year 2000. After the birth of my second son, I began to spend more time at home and had more opportunities to develop new artistic insights. The positive feedback I received from my friends and the discovery of Etsy motivated me to move on to a professional level. Purchasing a Pfaff sewing machine -now i have 7 sewing machine for different kind of sewing method -enabled me to make embroidered linen coasters and bags. In time, this has turned into the production of more versatile, sporty, colorful and eco-friendly bags.
If you could go back in time, what advice would you give yourself or someone considering a similar route?
Nothing is too late in life, but I wish I would have set up my Etsy business sooner, because my creative ideas do not fit into a 24-hour day. I advise others not to be afraid to leave a day job, because everyone has creative ideas to sell. The most important thing is to be yourself and discover what you can do.
