So here I am with new original designs and creations for sale on Etsy. I had my first public showing at my girls' elementary school's Spring fair. While there was a lot of interest and I got a lot of praise for my pieces, I did not sell many pieces. But undetered I wil enter actual craft shows starting in June.
