Packages and strings and lots of my favorite things!

I moved to Ireland in 2008 to join my husband who works here, just at the dawn of the global recession. I found myself unable to find a job with redundancies in companies all over the country going by the thousands. Everything was bleak and gloomy - job prospects, the economy, the weather.

I didn't have a job for over two years. What saved my sanity was my volunteer work and crafting! I crafted and blogged away and learned about Etsy! That was the birth of my first Etsy shop, swannandsmerlin. I made notecards and lunchcards which I designed myself. My favorite part in keeping shop was wrapping up the packages which led to my new supplies shop - Packages and Strings.

Life got in the way - I found a job, went to college and in all of the excitement, had to temporarily close my shops. But first love never dies, eh? I'm back and will be re-opening my swannandsmerlin shop as well, launching my handmade cards again.

What makes me very happy? 2 things - Wrapping up shop orders and waking up with a lovely feedback in the shop. It warms my heart and makes my day. ♥

Thank you for reading, and thank you for supporting my shops!
