About

I love to read and a bit of a book worm. I just became a Librarian at my local public Library (Dream come true) so being a book lover and a lover of learning, this suites me.

I also love to crochet and have a yarn addiction. I started crocheting when I was 15. My Grandmother crochet all the time, and at times tried to show me but being left-handed was difficult. So being home-schooled my whole childhood helped me grow and learn for myself so with a (left-handed) book, I taught myself to crochet.

I crochet all through school, and after college I picked it back up. I needed an outlet for all the items I was crocheting, and for all the new ideas I had. So after some research, I opened my Etsy shop. This gave me something else to learn and gave me something to work for.

Merchant 3114 has been on Etsy for over 4 years now and as of last year we officialy started our very own website, merchant3114.com and are always adding new products. We also attend several craft shows throughout the year.


**All shop items were crafted in a smoke-free environment**

My shop name is based off the Bible passage Proverbs 31:14 "She is like a merchant ship...."

"She is like a merchant ship..." (Proverbs 31:14)

This woman is compared to a merchant ship as she makes goods to trade for things her family needs. She runs her own business. What she makes with her her hands she sells and used the profits for good. This is the kind of woman I want to be. I make things by hand because I love doing it and crafts are my hobby. But I would like to be able to sell what I make for other people to enjoy.

So take a look around my shop and enjoy. Check back often as I am always making new things to add.
