DownlyUpwards Crafts from imagination and inspiration to reality!
I had been creating things for most of my life whether it be painting, drawing, sculpting etc. so naturally when I heard about Etsy I was interested. I read up on fantastic things like how to start my own shop, how to get my creations out to the masses and how to be part of a team and I was instantly ready to begin. It was tough at first to learn the ropes but eventually I found my niche and started to build DownlyUpwards Crafts into the shop that it is today, the shop that I have become so proud of and happy with.
When I am not playing with my amazing son, I spend my days either creating new items or thinking up to items that I want to create. My son is the one who initially inspired me to really put the effort forward into starting my own business so a lot of what I create now is fueled by my love for him and wanting to be successful if not for myself then for my little guy.
I started out with my Treescape paintings which are essentially black tree silhouettes painted on a variety of intricately colored backgrounds. I then started trying other mediums such as polymer clay which has been something that I have come to love just as much as painting! I usually make items from polymer clay and then paint on them either to be wearable art such as the Treescape Pendant necklaces or to make them more realistic or aged. I have truly enjoyed making jewelry in many different styles but recently I have tried my hand at totems and miniatures which I have found to be extremely fun and rewarding! I will continue to research new mediums and making what I love in hopes that sharing my art with others will bring them as much joy as it does to me!
Art has always been my passion and thanks to Etsy I have been able to distribute what I love to others who have taken an interest in my creations and that is something I have always dreamed about. I have also been invited to bring DownlyUpwards Crafts to numerous local craft fairs and I jump at the opportunity to be part of them. Being a shop owner has brought me such joy and I will continue to build and grow for as long as I am able to keep creating.DownlyUpwards Crafts is not just my hobby it is my passion and I will strive to make quality one of a kind products for years to come! I hope that all of the products I distribute can bring joy to the lives of others, that is my main goal as owner of this amazing shop.
I try to keep the shop well stocked at all times but if there is a special item you would like, feel free to make special requests! I enjoy working on custom orders and have even done a few wholesale orders and I am always willing to do both!
Thank you for reading more about my shop, I hope the day finds you well!
Around the web
I spend my days with my family in Indiana where DownlyUpwards Crafts was founded. I am always either creating new items or thinking up items I'd like to add to the shop.DownlyUpwards Crafts is my passion and I will strive to make it a success.
