I bought 2 bracelets. One for my niece Kayanna, and one for me. They are just beautiful! It's hard to find Nightmare before Christmas items with Sally included.

The Story of HandiCrafted By Sarah

Hello, my name is Sarah and I'm 35.

I reside in Metropolis, Illinois, the "Official Home of Superman".

I was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis in 2003, but continued to work outside of the home until the middle of 2004.

I quickly got bored of sitting around doing nothing all day. It was in the Spring of 2005, that I decided to try my hand at selling vintage postcards on eBay. This allowed me to learn how to sell online while also learning about vintage postcards.

After a while, I realized that selling the postcards was really just giving me something to do, as I wasn't making any money doing this. I sold my remaining inventory and went back to being bored.

So, here I was back at "square one" and being bored. I've always loved to read, so that helped occupy my time, but I was now looking for something else to do. I love being creative and doing crafts, but couldn't ever find something that looked like fun and would be something that I could do independently. That was about to change, though.

One day in 2009, my fiance, Brett, and I were looking around Wal-Mart, and I spied a loom for making potholders for only $5. I told Brett that I was interested in trying to make some potholders and he agreed that it would be a good choice for me and would also be good therapy for my arms and hands. That first loom was plastic, and lasted for quite a while, but after making so many potholders, it broke. I was able to find a metal one at a local craft/hobby store as well as many different colored loops. I also found it necessary to get a small tote to carry my supplies in.

Shortly after this, I was admitted into the hospital and would then spend the next 18 months in a local nursing home for rehabilitation to hopefully grow stronger. I took my potholder supplies with me, and made quite a few during my stay there. For the most part, I gave them away to the activities director to use as Bingo prizes for the residents. These potholders were just nylon.
Also during my stay at the nursing home, I underwent surgery to have total knee replacements on both of my knees, but at separate times. You guessed it, my potholder supplies went with me on those trips.

I was finally able to come home in May of 2011, but by then, I had kind of grown tired of making potholders. Sure, I would make a few here and there, but that was about it.

One day, while we were just looking around in the local hobby/craft store, I noticed that they carried cotton loops. I was excited, because now I could make potholders that were a little bigger and more durable than the nylon ones that I was making up until this point. I was hooked (pardon the pun!) once again.

I haven't stopped making potholders since! I have sold a few here and there and given quite a few as gifts. Everyone seems to love them.

    I love doing crafty things and making potholders is a great hobby because my supplies are very portable. I don't go anywhere without my loom and loops!
