Mom, Military Wife, Biochemist and Etsy Shop Owner = Dana
I went to college with ambitions of working in a research lab at some University, or study infectious diseases at CDC (or something like that)...but, life had a way of changing my path. I did earn a B.S. in Biochemistry and worked in my field for a few years. But, then came children and the reality that my husband's career in the Air Force will keep us moving every 2-3 years for next 10-20 years. I needed something I could do - anywhere. I had always been crafty/artsy, and I just needed to think of something I could make and sell. That turned out to be quite difficult...what could I make that people would want to buy?? After much trial and error, I listed my first item on Etsy, it was a red & white polka dotted handmade apron. It sold within a day, and I was elated. The rest, as they say, is history. I have been running my Etsy shop for almost 7 years now, and I am still learning, changing and growing everyday. I am so thankful for Esty and what it has allowed me to do...it gave me career, it gave me a creative outlet, it lets me be me- and all the while I get to continue to be a full time "mom"and a military spouse. I hope you enjoy my shop!
Around the web
All my creations are handmade by me, and many were 100% designed by me. I also sell eReader covers designed by Birdiful Stitches on Etsy and the dog collar pattern was purchased from Little Black Dog Boutique. Please convo me if you have any questions or would like to set up a custom order.
All my designs have been "road tested" and are built to be used.
All items come from a smoke-free home. I do love animals, and I have a dog and 2 kitties that do occasionally come and take naps in my office.
