---------------------------------
My Story
---------------------------------
Once upon a time there was a little girl, as soon as she learned to write her first few words, she was bitten by “The Art Bug”... since then she became crazy about art & crafts. As she grew up, this wonderful craziness never left her side but it got a bit lost somewhere between life’s other endeavors & norms.
But one day everything changed!
...She was finally able to pursue her passion.

I am passionate about Arts and Crafts since I was a little girl, always learning something new or making something creative in my free time. I started with Drawing when I could not even write, then moved to Sketching and Painting and later on took on many types of Crafts like paper, clay, felt, embroidery and so on.

I have been Sewing since I was in School, that is a sewing experience of more than 20 Years! It started with making dresses for my dolls and now I make my own dresses!

Recently I quit my job as a College Professor, and right now I am at a wonderful place trying to turn my “Passion into my Profession” and doing “What I Love to Do”.

Yes, this is my story in a few words. And thanks to Etsy for helping me live my dream.

My mom still can’t believe that after completing my Masters in Literature and holding a PhD I am making itsy-bitsy Crafts and Art.

I love DIYs and Crafting, Decorating, Painting, Cartooning, Sewing, Cooking, Gardening, Designing, Collecting miniatures, Nature Photography & Bird-watching. And I am also a Pet lover!

I love Variety, but I also believe in Quality with Quantity. I have a lot of different things in my shop and so my tagline is “…Something Special for Everyone” , but when I first opened my shop I was a bit scared that this might create confusion or people may think that I am trying to be the Jack of all crafts and so on.

Some called me 'Oh, You are Miss Do it All' 'You and your 99 Crafts' and so on, some with genuine appreciation and some with sheer jealousy,

…But I finally decided to go along with who I am and what I am passionate about, following my dream & letting my art & my work speak for itself.

The Art Bug shop is full of pieces that would enchant everyone... starting from Silly Cuteness to Tasteful Elegance.

My Hubby...

He is the one who keeps me going! He helps me with almost everything, but most of all without his support and motivation this shop would have been just a dream.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Hope you will find your something “Special” in my Treasure Trove!
Cheers!
