On Etsy since 2013

Born to be a crafter

I have been a crafter my whole life. When I was a kid around 7 or 8 years old, I remember learning to latch hook. When I was 9 years old, I was in the Cub Scouts and learned how to make lanyard keychains among other things like bird houses and plastic canvas with yarn. When I was 17 I learned how to make friendship bracelets and when I was 18 I learned how to crochet, knit and embroidery. Later in life in my 40's I learned to make more advanced lanyard keychains as well as turning them into jewelry.

I opened my Etsy shop in mid 2013 after I had broken my arm and decided to start making keychains. I had so many keychains that I didn't know what to do with, and then someone suggested opening an Etsy shop.

This shop has just been a hobby over the last couple of years, but at this point I just craft for fun. I can't do bulk orders because of my carpal tunnel syndrome.
