Handmade Goodness for your Nest

I see creative possibilities in everything around me. I always ask myself "How can I use that item in another way"?
After I make something, I ask myself "How can I change it and make it different"? My daughter (yes that's her and my Mom in the picture over there...) anyway - she recently told me that she was glad she was creative - but really glad that she wasn't Driven to create - the way I am.

When I set up shop on Etsy (March 2008), I had NO clue what I was doing - other than my gut telling me I needed to find a larger audience for my work and goods.
Serendipity smiled on me in April when I had my first sale - a vintage handbag (Thank You Canada)(see my About page for my vintage shop: MissingHeirloom for a picture), AND I was contacted by Lark Books. I was smart enough to list my Recycled Envelopes card line on Earth Day and one of their editors contacted me. Would I do a 'How To' for their book "Pushing the Envelope"? No Joke - I had to learn how to attach photos to emails, embed stuff, use Photoshop, it was like going back to college! OK - have you stopped chuckling yet?
I was forever asking my computer literate daughter to help and she was always patient enough to do so.
So here I am - doing what I love.
My commute is as close as my living room, and as far away as my workroom studio (out the back door, up past the chicken coop, give a pet to Sweet Pea and Donkey, and up a flight of stairs.
Living my Dream :)
