Monetware....Delight in the Little Things!!
I enjoy a number of craft-related hobbies, but as you can see my two favorite are papercrafts and jewelry making. After much urging from family and friends, I finally decided to make my items available on-line….and now I’m wondering why I didn’t do it sooner.
When I was younger, my mother taught me how to sew. My grandmother introduced me to knitting by giving me a book on it even though she didn’t knit herself. Around the time I got married, I begin to experiment with some paper and floral crafts. (I was outraged by some of the prices for wedding favors, flowers, etc. and decided to see what I could do myself.)
One of my favorite projects to make is the sticky notes pad. These make great, inexpensive gifts. Also, I am still very much a fan of writing notes (reminders for myself, a note for my husband, etc) and these make it convenient to always have something handy for leaving a quick note.
How did I come to choose the name "monetware" for my shop? My husband calls me “Monet”. Also, “ware” is defined as “articles of merchandise or manufacture; goods.” Therefore, “monetware”. (About 7 years ago, I said to myself that if I ever had to sell my goods, I would use that name for my line of merchandise. Etsy presented the perfect opportunity to really play up the name for my shop.)
If I could open up a shop in my town I would call it “Monetware”…(of course!) I would sell my merchandise, plus I would have a little section of the shop to serve tea and desserts. I would also offer customized services that would include event planning, etc.
One of the most challenging items I have made would probably have to be one of the necklaces from my “Beads & Buttons” Collection. It involves wire bending and layering of the buttons. Challenging, but some of my favorite pieces to date.
One of the most enjoyable and satisfying feelings is to see others happy because they have received something they need, want, or didn’t know they needed or wanted. To be able to provide that “thing”, even if it is just a covered post-it notes pad….inspires me to continue to create and be crafty. It’s also very relaxing to sit for hours and make cards, jewelry, etc.
Thanks for stopping by!
