The House That Junk Built!

I have always been a Junker and I say that with pride! Many years ago you could always find me on Saturday at the Tulsa Fairgrounds Flea Market. I loved all the old junk and the history that came with it.

Fast forward several years, my sister and I were young mothers with very small children, and she wanted me to be her partner in a craft business. I thought this would be fun and I could make a little money, my husband had always said I should do something crafty in my spare time, {like I had any}.

Together my sister and I had several booths at Craft Malls and started doing Craft Shows. Everything just fell into place and we were a huge success! My sister has the knack for spotting trends and I have a head for business, so together we had this craft thing sewn up.

After several years of doing this together it became evident that running a business 500 miles apart was not going to keep working, I lived in Houston, TX and she lived in Broken Arrow, OK. So we decided to split the business and she go her way and I go mine. We had also developed differnent styles and this gave us the opportunity to grow our own way.

Now it was time to have my own business. My three active sons were in elementary school and I had a little "spare time" to design and work on my Folk Art and a business was born!

Because of my love of junk, it was always something I liked painting on. My designs are all based on Vintage Christmas and Halloween inspiration and old stuff mixed right in with my nostalgic style.

I run two active websites and was always being asked the ins and outs of the craft business, so my line of E-Books was born. I am working hard on adding new patterns but my "spare time" seems to be less and less. Check back often to see what I have been doing in My Spare Time!

Thanks for visiting.
