The story behind my Etsy Shop

I have always wanted to start my own business, who hasn't right? I never had the guts to really try because I had so many ideas, but off course none was ever the right one. Finally 2020 rolls in, and I just knew this was going to be my "best" year yet. It, off course, did not turn out the way anyone expected. In March of 2020 during the week of Spring break everything went from normal to completely shutdown, I mean my granddaughter Anjali did not even go back to school, like so many other kids. That's when the idea got started but it did not happen for months after. My son-in-law's mom, Betty, started making fabric face masks for her family, and after seeing the masks, my daughter posted on Facebook about it, family and friends started asking if they were for sale and that's how the idea was born. They started getting orders but Betty could not keep up. My daughter, Rebecca, then decided to start her own company, CC Masks, to keep up with the demand, but was getting so many orders that we all had to pitch in as a family to help and I found that I loved going to the fabric store to pick out material and assembling and sewing the masks. As I sewed for her, I also started sewing for myself and decided to open my own Etsy shop. I want to add that I work full time plus I am pursuing an undergraduate degree in my spare time but still want to realize my dream of owning my own business. I hope to expand into making and selling other items but need to take it slowly as I have much on my plate right now
