Michelle R's Profile

About

Like many artists on Etsy, I have been creating things all of my life. I have worn many hats in my life including wife, mother, student, sailor of Oceans, water colorist, waitress, cook, author, gardener, general hellion, horsewoman, Registered Nurse, and very ill. It is that last thing that drove me into crafting for a living. I was stricken with Guillian Barre Syndrome 6-6-09 and was hospitalized for a month in ICU. I learned to walk again over the next 8 months but the effects have been devastating to my nursing career (I was an ICU RN for 20 years). One day, 2.5 years after my diagnosis, I just decided to be happy again and damn the symptoms! Enter Etsy...I now create a large array of hand made and vintage, re-purposed or up-cycled items that are unique or uniquely prepared for display. I also take special orders on some things so your item can match your home decor and no extra charge! Just convo me. Happy Day!
