On Etsy since 2009

I live in the Pacific Northwest

I am, Karen,
Mother of 4 in their 40's,
Grandmother of 7,
Greatgrandmother
(GGma to 2
(soon to be 4)
Began painting in the 70's and doing various juried craft bazarres
I was working full time in retail and raising my kids and parents.
So my time for painting was limited.

Now I am "retired" my kids are grown, my parents have gone on their journey, but somehow my time is still not enough.
I love to paint and need a outlet for my pieces.
The physical aspect of doing the shows got to be very overwhelming with all the lifting and carrying etc.
So I started my shop with the help and encouragement of a very close friend, who is a shop owner here on Etsy.

Now just a short time later I have two shops on Etsy.
My other shop is for my Vintage pieces I find scrounging thru garage sales, estate sales and thrift shops. I love vintage's so many memories.
Check it out and see if you can find some hidden memories you just can't live without.

The door is always open and no need to take your shoes off.


I love the spirit and friendly people I have met on Etsy.
