Emancipated Professional Starts New Venture - Smiling Camel Creations
Following a very successful and rewarding career as the President of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, Hampton Roads Chapter, I am fulfilling a long time dream - to open my own artisan craft shop.
I am lucky enough to have two studios in my tall and skinny house near the Chesapeake Bay in Virginia Beach. Downstairs is lampworking and pottery complete with an oxygen/propane torch, a kiln for annealing beads, and one to fire pottery along with a potter's wheel, slab roller and extruder.
Upstairs is the fiber and paper studio where I am overrun with yarns of all sorts, beautiful papers, ribbons, my cricut machine (which I have yet to figure out) and my computer.
It sounds really big but there isn't room for two people at the same time in either studio and the wheel and torch are in closets!!! But, I am very lucky and very happy to have such great spaces to work and create. I am in heaven!
I share this paradise with my husband of 37 years. My daughter and her dog, Titus are frequent visitors - especially Titus who is a puggle and the love of my husband's life. (Another story for another day)
While I have been crafting my whole life, I have been designing and selling as Smiling Camel Creations since 2008. I am thrilled to make this my full time career now and invite you along on this great new adventure. Please come by often and see my new creations. This is going to be fun!!!!!
