It was my daughter’s future that inspired me to join the marketplace. As a single mother, I needed to be able to earn enough money to send her to college one day. I was introduced to Etsy several years ago and immediately fell in love with the idea of turning my love for crafting into a small-business of my own.
It took a full year before I was able to create a single pair of tiny baby booties that I felt were truly perfect. While there were so many frustrations along the way, I couldn’t bring myself to give up. I knew that the items I offered were going to be incredibly special to so many families and it was important to me that I pushed myself to make sure our personalized baby items became a reality.
My daughter is now a Junior in college and I consider her being where she is today a direct result of my passion for both her success and my own here at Etsy. It wasn’t easy but I’m so proud of how far we’ve come!…
