After many years of wondering how I was going to put all my artistic talent and love for handmade items into one collective state a dear friend told me about Etsy. After two years of researching opening a shop and what I would end up creating I landed on wreaths. I thought to myself, you can put anything on a wreath. That meant I could use my love for painting, sewing, hand stitching, color, and the obscure into one spot. I have loved every minute since opening my shop in 2009. I have met so many wonderful people, found kindred spirits, and opened a world of crafting I had never before discovered. I am ever amazed at the beautiful art everyone around the world brings to Etsy. As far as the future goes I am excited to expand my shop. I am looking for other ways to bring beauty to the front door and am slowly but surely adding new items to my shop each season. I am inspired by every day life. I am peaceful, restless, happy, and charismatic. I want to do everything I love and do it beautifully. Happiness is meant to be shared and I hope that is what I send with every piece of art.
