Helping others without leaving home
Decades ago with no education or income, my great-aunt Min would design and hand sew all my dolls' clothes. She made miniature furniture and drew fantastic pictures. She made jewelry out of pumpkin seeds. She knew papier mache. I strove to be mini-Minnie trying to be as artistic and creative as her. Did I mention how much fun we had??? Oh, and she was instrumental in convincing my parents I needed a dog. My first love was a dachshund.
About seven years ago I became mostly homebound due to one of my children's illnesses. My husband was in school in order to change careers and clearly we needed an income! I stumbled across Etsy and had an "I bet I can do that" moment.
Starting out painting roosters, I had my first customer. Next came angels, and animals, lots and lots of angels. And animals. Love them both. We live in Wisconsin but so far I haven't convinced my husband that I need a small farm. Still working on it though...
One of the best parts of Etsy experience has turned out to be the customers. I began hearing wonderful stories from people, about how some of my work was helping them, in some cases immensely. It was very rewarding, knowing I could touch peoples' lives without leaving home.
