"You know you have two cases of glitter still stored in our basement?"
This year, we suffered a tremendous loss for our family ~ my father, passed away and the void that it leaves for me has no words. I've joked with & about him in the past and the above quote is from him.
For me, he was and still is, a source of inspiration; you see, he was in business for over 50 years. First with a grocery store, then after the 70's, a gift shop primarily making Fruit Baskets & Cheese Trays.
To say that the Christmas rush is brutal for handmade entrepreneurs, is an understatement when it's in your blood. From my Mom, down to my nephews, who were constantly promoted from candy baggers to delivery guys... come the month of December, we were together because we had no other choice!
So this year, as I create everyone's personalized ornaments, know I will have family helping me as my dad. And I will hear his voice saying, "Did you get out your orders? Oh very good, sweetheart."
I am the youngest in a medium Italian family, I mean, only 42 strong, with 4 generations! All are creative, spunky (no one wants to be known as cute - from the 11 yr old to the 93 yr old), and loud when all are actually together.
From this incredible family are my closest friends, who are there helping me paint, glue, wire and of course, glitter. The joke is, if you don't go away from my house with glitter on your face or clothes, you really didn't help.
25 years ago, after being laid off from my full time job, I decided to wholesale my items and during the 90's, I was able to create items for shops all around the world - with Cracker Barrel being one of those clients. As the market changed, I kept creating, waiting for another outlet to emerge and there was ETSY!
I've been blessed with meeting so many wonderful people via Etsy since 2007; and amazed to see a new generation carry the torch for creativity & innovation.
To all my customers present and future - Thank you. I strive to create items I would want in my home; to decorate the simplest wreath or under that treasured cloche. Ornaments that are unique just for you and your family.
Thank you for allowing me to be a part of all your special occasions.
Much Joy to All.
