Discovering a Passion....at 40
Ok, I admit it, I am a recovering New Yorker.
Yes, many years ago, I was a professional person with a regular job, wearing pantyhose,high heels and clothes with zippers. I did lunch dates and had my nails manicured.
But all that changed one afternoon when I was attending an art auction for an AIDS organization in Seattle. They had thoughtfully set up some art activities for the children attending with their parents. I happen to notice a large table where kids were collaging on to light switch covers with old magazine photos. The next thing I knew, I was sitting in a kid's size chair asking an 8 year old if I could use his safety scissors and piling through magazines with the rest of the kids. I fell in love with paper, glue, scissors and the gift of making something with my hands for the first time in 40 years.
The idea of doing what I now loved and making a living was tricky..since all I knew how to make so far was switchplates. I would do my creative work on the side, day dreaming about how to make it my full time work while I grumbled through the last days of my "professional" life. And so, with nothing to lose, I pitched Anthropologie...and you know what, they bought my stuff!
All these years later, we are still making switchplates, but now we have added magnets, flour sack towels and pillows. This Etsy site is for our pillows only. But if you would like to see all the Full Circle Studio wares, please visit our website at: www.fullcirclestudio.biz
You just never know where those crazy impulses are going to lead you! For me, it lead to the wild and joyous adventure of running my own business.
I couldn't wear a high heel now if you paid me...and I am all the happier for it!

After years in the fast lane of urban living, my life changed course when I discovered my passion for collage and decoupage. Full Circle Studio was created to celebrate the art of "nesting" with handmade embellishments for the home. Enjoy!
