I always felt that I had no artistic talents but Etsy has given me a twinkle of encouragement. My background is the automotive aftermarket industry(everything you don't really need for your car) and I manufactured air fresheners for the automotive industry. My hobbies are British sports cars ( 57 MGA), Harleys and making cool things with my hands. I'm very much a New Yorker who spent a major part of my life in Brooklyn and then I graduated to Long Island. I would love to move back so I could see my 2 grandson's, family and friends but I have to be satisfied with just visiting. It costs way to much to live there.
