Christy Platt's Profile

About

I'm a stay at home mom to our fun-loving 6 year old daughter, sweet-hearted 10 year old step-daughter, and our youngest little blessing....our happy-spirited 3 year old baby girl!! Yes, all girls! My husband would love a male dog! ;)

My charming husband and I met playing in a pool league that we still enjoy together today. We became great friends and eventually found we couldn't live without each other. Without the enthusiasm we share for pool, we never would have found each other and the blessings we share today.

I found Etsy when a friend sent me an adorable invitation to her twin daughter's birthday party, and it's all uphill from there! Etsy has paved a path that enables me to do something that I love from home, while still enjoying the greatest joy on earth that my husband and I have ever known....our daughters…

Etsy has allowed me to focus on something exciting and new and all my own. I love designing and being creative, and after a long and difficult year or so, I needed a new focus. In October of 2009, my family and I endured so much sadness and pain at the loss of my Father. My Dad was diagnosed with brain cancer only months before. He underwent surgery to remove two tumors and the ringing of the bad news the doctor relayed still rings in my ears. He was given only a year to live. My Dad passed away only two short months later and just eight days before our wedding day....not from the cancer, but from Tens Syndrome, something we had never heard of before he was diagnosed. The engrained images I have, of how Tens destroyed my father's body, are memories I wish I could somehow forget.

However, with the memory of our wedding day, I am especially reminded of all that I lost on one hand and the gratefulness I feel for all that God has given me on the other. My Dad and I didn't get to walk arm in arm down the aisle on our special day, but I can't help but smile at everything that bittersweet day did bring for me.

I opened my shop on my father's birthday...always one of our life's special events! I couldn't think of a better day to become a small part of your life's special events!

I LOVE Etsy and all of the new, wonderful people I meet along the way!

You never know what you're going to find...where you're going to find it...and whether or not what you found will change you forever. Enjoy every bit of this amazing journey we're on, and always....Live Life Brightly. . .

xoxo, Christy
