My about page definitely needs some work so I'm not the best person to offer advice! However, the best about pages I have seen include an interesting/funny/quirky story about how the shop came to be or how the artist discovered their talent.
I think you should write about anything that gives us an insight into the 'real' you :-)

Good morning, Chris! I was kind of intimidated to start mine, but really enjoyed creating it when I finally took the plunge. How about just starting with some cool pictures? Don't worry about the words just yet. When you've chosen your pictures and see how awesome they look in the page format, I bet you'll come up with some great stuff.

We all know you can't force inspiration. I struggled with my and I'm still tweaking it. I try to keep it more conversational and not so biographical so, hopefully, more of my personality comes through.
Try reading other peoples "About" pages for ideas to get you started. I found it helpful to see what others were including and something would trigger a little light bulb that would say "I like that one".
If you find a certain approach appeals to you you'll feel more comfortable creating one in that style and more of "you" will come through.
BTW - Greece is a beautiful country (I was there 25+ yrs ago). Maybe share some cultural influences.

I just wanted to let you know Chris that you're not alone on this one. I'm yet to do mine too. However, I have soo much to do to my little shop that the about page is taking a back-seat for me at the moment. Wish I had a magic wand lol.
Anyone got one that I could borrow? lol

Open a Word document and start writing!
-why did you start your craft?
-what made you decide to sell?
-what kinds of materials do you use?
-what part of this is the most fun?
-what part are you most proud of?
-how do you expect your shop/business to grow in the next year or so/
Also, Lisa...I'd get the About page up near the top of your list - I'm getting about 30 views a day JUST from my About page!
