SOME OF MY MACHINE EMBROIDERY THREAD and vintage linens can be found in my SECOND SHOP

GARDENINGGALWORKING2

For most of my adult life I worked 8-5, trying to squeeze in time for my hobbies. When I lost my job in 2008, and remained unable to find another, I began to think more and more about the possibility of making my hobbies into a career. I originally began making greeting cards more than 20 years ago. Then, I discovered glass and cement and absolutely fell in love with both. They are more time consuming, but the results are so gratifying. However, they aren't the easiest items to ship. And, with all the new techniques and equipment available, I have fallen in love again with paper and cards. As a professionally trained gardener, I press flowers, preserve and arrange them, collect seed, and find many other ways to use them, and they work well on my cards. I began to collect beads along with tools, wire and books, not to make jewelry, but something better suited to my background and imagination. I also began taking photographs, and took lessons from my aunt, a professional digital photographer, so I'll attempt to combine all of my loves into a business that I hope you will enjoy as much as I do. Welcome to my shop!

This is a huge spool but I know I'll use it because I quickly went through my small spool of another color like this. I love that you carry this size and I'll be back for more :)

About

Turning Hobbies into a Perfect Career

I began making greeting cards over 20 years ago and began this shop creating cards and garden art. After a short time on Etsy, one of the vendors suggested that I stock supplies since I was so familiar with them - something I had never considered. Now, I provide materials and information to other crafters and assist brides, hostesses of showers and parties, school teachers and many others to purchase the perfect items for their events and personalities. And when time permits, I work with paper, spend as much time in my gardens as possible, and I've begun to collect beads and findings, not to make jewelry, but something better suited to my background and imagination. I also began taking photographs, so my goal is to combine all of these loves into a business I hope you will enjoy as much as I do. Welcome to my shop!
